It’s always important to keep your immunity high. But we’re obviously in a time that it needs to be as strong as possible. Here are some foods you can eat that can help give your immunity a much-needed boost. 

You are looking for foods that are high in antioxidants and Vitamins C and E.

At this point, frozen or fresh, whatever you can get your hands on is helpful. 


I have my nutrition certification, and while this post provides some basic information about nutrition, it’s just a guide. Please consult with a registered dietitian for specific concerns or needs. They can do wonders to improve your overall health and help you meet your goals.

Some immunity-boosting foods:

Fruit to boost your immunity

Please ensure to wash all thoroughly, especially if you are eating them raw or lightly cooked.

Some immunity-boosting spices and others

Garlic to boost your immunity

Stay away from these foods

Poor eating habits can negatively impact your immunity. So, while you may be doing and eating some of the right things, you may be reversing the good you’re doing with bad habits.

Cut out junk food like chips, chocolate and fried foods, alcohol and caffeine. Also, cigarettes if you smoke. I know it’s not food, but I needed to throw it in! If you need to quick smoking, there’s no better time than now. I wrote a post, Kicking the habit. One smoke-free day at a time with some helpful tips.

If you want some more tips to sticking to a proper diet during this time, I wrote a post called The basics of a proper diet.

  1. Well written Sam. Do you think that any fruits with natural sugar like citrus is better in the morning? I am just curious.

  2. Well written. As usual, informative posts. All the foods and spices you have mentioned are my all time favourite especially fruits, seeds and ginger. Thank you for sharing! 🙂
