My Secret Weapons Against Cold and Flu

Cold and flu season is here so it's important to keep our immunity up to guard against viruses and bacteria.  Here's my special immune boosting tip:  mushrooms and garlic!

Mushrooms, especially shiitake and Maitake, are packed with immune boosters and fight off colds and flu by boosting our body's immune response.  Garlic is a wonderful antiviral and antibacterial and should be consumed regularly and especially when you feel the onset of symptoms.

So how can you get more of this into your diet.  How about adding them to soups, or you can saut√© them up with a little olive oil and red wine and add to pasta.
