Staying Healthy Through Winter

Nov 14, 2020 | The Healthy Way Newsletter

Winter is quickly approaching. While I may dream of a balmy ocean breeze and poolside sangria, reality continues to be what it is. Toronto is getting darker and colder and is now considered a red zone. 

The patios, parks, and backyards are closing, and there’s nothing I can do about it. But I can protect myself to the best of my knowledge and abilities to weather the storm and become winter-proof.

There’s still a lot to enjoy – fresh tea, watching dogs on sunny days, pilates by the fireplace – and I intend to do it all, 2020 be damned.

To do more of the things we enjoy doing in life, my family and I protect our immune systems by taking vitamins A, C, D, zinc, and quercetin. Although, with the pounds of kale being delivered every week, I may skip some rounds of quercetin and let the dietary antioxidants do their anti-inflammatory thing.

But some weeks, we get busy, forget to take supplements, and get lazy with dinner. Then we need something powerful and specific: IV.

Potent Protocol

I have a proprietary Immunity IV formula that combats the winter one-two-punch of tired immune systems and weather-induced depression.

White blood cells are the immune systems’ bodyguards. When our health declines, those soldiers fall asleep at their posts. Diet and exercise are basic training. 

Supplementation is putting your immune system through boot camp.

The Immunity IV is like giving Captain America’s super soldier serum to your white blood cells (minus the super strength and indestructible shield).

I won’t get into the endless research supporting the efficacy of IV Vitamin C, zinc, and this protocol’s other ingredients, or we’ll be here forever. All you need to know is that this is how I help the people I love to do the things they enjoy most.


Carrot Ginger Soup

Make extra! “Adult” carrots are better than baby carrots and replace cream with coconut milk.

Mushroom Lentil Stew

Hearty, healthy, and the leftovers can be breakfast-ified with a fried egg.

Braised Lamb Shanks

The hardest part is waiting patiently while the aroma fills your kitchen.

In terms of timing this meal, start with the lamb shanks, then once they’re in the oven for two hours, start the soup, followed by the stew and potatoes.

Happy eating!
