So stock up on your Vitamin C, A and zinc foods today!
Here are some common foods you might find in your home - depending on where you live:
I'm sure you have some of these in your home today! The ones at the top of the list have the highest Daily Value (DV) rating, so try those first.
These values are taken from "The Worlds Healthiest Foods" by George Mateljan. (*Note I couldn't find any DV values for Spruce tips or Rose hips but I added them in because they can be foraged and local/traditional knowledge says they are an impressive source - enough to aid against scurvy)
Enjoy! ANd remember... even in tough times, it isn't complicated to stay healthy.
