Nutrition and Diet Specialist Ayşegül Savsa said in a statement that more attention should be paid to nutrition during the winter months. Stating that many diseases such as colds and flu could be faced during this period, Savsa said, “Coronavirus was added to this period. The immune system is an important factor in this period.
We need a healthy and balanced diet to strengthen the immune system. There should be 3 main meals and 3 snacks. Daily water consumption decreases during the winter months. In order to increase water consumption, we can increase water consumption with flavoring supplements such as cinnamon sticks, cloves and parsley stems. We must eat in color.
Our immune system will be strong when we combine and consume different foods such as carrots, oranges, and celery in the sense of a colorful diet. We should consume 5-8 portions of vegetables and fruits daily, “he said.
‘WE SHOULD CONSUME THE FISH AT LEAST 2 TIMES A WEEK’
Savsa, stating that the body can be strong with enough nutrients, said, “By eating a healthy and balanced diet, we can keep our immune system strong by taking as much food as our body needs.
Since we stay at home in cold weather, we should avoid high-calorie foods. During these periods, we should consume fish, which is one of the most important food sources, at least twice a week. In order to get dried legumes and vegetable protein, we definitely need to take it twice a week. Probiotic should be added to meals and nutrition lists as yoghurt or kefir during the winter season. “Raw almonds or walnuts can be consumed in the family sitting in the evening.”
