Recipe Ideas To Help Bolster Your Immune System

By Gabrielle Newman, Nutritionist

The outbreak of Covid-19 has stimulated a massive appetite for learning how to keep well. Our best defences – in addition to the sensible approaches of hand washing and social distancing – are to maintain a healthy weight and a fully active immune system. Immune bolstering foods have never been more popular!

Celebrating the release of Dr Michael Mosley’s new book, Covid-19: What you need to know about the coronavirus and the race for a vaccine, we are sharing a round-up of The Fast 800 recipes that support Dr Mosley’s approach to bolstering your immune system.

The Fast Breaker – The Fast 800 shakes

Practice intermittent fasting to improve your immune system response.

But, when you’re ready to break your fast, enjoy the full flavour, protein and gut healthy fibre of The Fast 800 Shakes.

Legumes like beans, chickpeas and lentils are fabulous fibre factories – like our Warm Lentils with Feta and Spinach.
