Boost Your Immune System

Foods To Boost Your Immune SystemNow more than ever we all need a strong immune system. I’m highlighting some important foods that can help keep us all strong and healthy. Although healthy when eaten fresh, red peppers, carrots, and spinach provide even more nutrients when cooked. Below you will find some specific easy recipes that each incorporate at least one of these immune boosting foods.

Almonds/Nuts: Granola Bars

Red Peppers: Chicken & Peppers, Sweet & Sour Chicken

Dark Chocolate: Chocolate Almond Clusters, Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownies

Garlic: Spaghetti with Olive Oil & Garlic, (+Most of my Main Dishes)

Mushrooms: Easy Chicken & Mushrooms

Olive Oil: Greek Salad Dressing

Tomatoes: Quick & Easy Spaghetti Sauce, Quick & Easy Tomato Soup, Spaghetti with Cherry Tomatoes

Black Beans:  Fast Rice & Beans, Mexican Black Bean Casserole, Rainbow Bean Salad,

Sweet Potatoes: Oven Roasted Sweet Potato Fries, Roasted Vegetables, Sweet Potato Chocolate Cake

Spinach: 15-Minute Veggie Pasta, Greek Spinach Rice, Spinach-Walnut Pesto

Salmon: Salmon Patties, Easy Broiled Salmon

Carrots: Sweet Creamy Carrots, Chicken Veggie Rice, Beef Sew, Roasted Vegetables

Sardines: Sardine Cakes

❤️ Take care, everyone. Eat well ~ be well. ❤️

    Hi, this is the first informations that i see regarding that some of the vegetables need to be cooked vs eaten raw

    I only know that mushroom need to be cooked, but everywhere else it says that it is ok to eat raw red peppeprs, carots and spinach .

    why doesit say to cook the red bell peepper, carrot and spinach?

    thank you

    Dear Jenny, Thank you so much for bringing so much joy to our lives especially during this difficult time. I discovered your site a few days ago and have made the lemon cake and the easy chocolate cake both delicious easy and fun. I was able to get some more flour by ordering on line so now I can make your no knead bread and bread sticks. We are so much more than this virus, your playful spirit and willingness to share reminds us of that. Stay well. Blessings. D. L.

    This is really true and necessary to eat food that are rich in vitamins and antioxidants. Once and a while however, everyone needs a treat… we have made the cinnamon rolls (easy and so delicious I never got a pic ?) Chicken with peppers and ribs are next! Pork fat has a nutritional score of 73 ( The higher the score, the more likely each food would meet, but not exceed your daily nutritional needs, when eaten in combination with others.) and is a good source of B vitamins. I’m passing your site along to others for their health and enjoyment.

    Hello Jenny,
    I’m writing to ask, if you could please make more cooking videos on YouTube. I’ve been making some of you dishes on there, I have 5 boys and my husband, to feed. Following your videos makes my life easier, my cooking healthier, plus I really enjoy your humor! ?

    Hi Jenny
    I am a 66 year old home cook from Windsor On. Canada (and former “Jenny Jones” fan lol ). I read that you have problems with dry pork chops.
    Try my Mom’s trick….lightly brown your breaded chops in a frying pan with oil.
    Bake on a rack 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. They’re moist every time.
    Hope this helps and stay healthy.
    PS I LOVE your website!

      Thank you. I will definitely try it. I hope I’ll be able to buy pork chops soon!

    Let’s see, yesterday we had that exact salmon (except ours was Boneless Skinless), red bell pepper, olive oil and garlic from that list. Leftovers today for sure, plus I think maybe tacos and green tea for lunch. I promised my husband tacos. Bless his heart.
