Suddenly, the entire world has come under the stress of the pandemic coronavirus (COVID-19). As the vaccine is yet not available to fight against the disease, it is best to take all precautionary measures. The most important routine that we all can follow easily is to wash our hands with soap (liquid or solid) before eating anything. So, even if our hands get in contact with the infected individual or material, a gentle hand wash can prevent the infection from entering our body. Secondly, we can follow a healthy diet (fruits and vegetables rich in Vitamin C) to keep our immune system strong enough to fight against the virus.
When we say a healthy diet, it means that there should be no junk food or fried food in your diet. Your meals should strictly have homemade light food. Wash the vegetables thoroughly before chopping and use less amount of cooking oil or no oil. Vitamin C helps in boosting our immunity. So, try to get vegetables that are rich in vitamin C and cook at least one of those vegetables every day to boost up your immunity system. Check below the list of vegetables that are rich in vitamin C:
