Olives

“The best anti-inflammatory foods are ones rich in healthy fats,” Dr. Ducharme tells us. Olives are also packed with immune-boosting properties, and some medical practitioners even recommend using olive leaf extract as a supplement.

Kale Smoothies

“Eating plenty of greens in particular, but all fruits and vegetables, with lean meats and healthy fats gives the body the best ingredients for immune health,” Dr. Ducharme says. Try a kale smoothie with tofu, almond butter, or yogurt for a protein and vegetable boost.
