Foods to Soothe the Savage Sore Throat
When you have a sore throat, don’t automatically reach for a lozenge or throat spray. God created foods that can naturally relieve your throat pain, lower inflammation and boost your body's immune system. The following foods are soothing to the throat, easy to swallow, and rich in nutrients.
Vegetable broth with garlic, turmeric and black pepper: The warm broth is comforting. The garlic fights inflammation and boosts immunity, and research on turmeric shows it also helps lower inflammation (the black pepper helps bring out turmeric’s qualities).
Chamomile tea with lemon: In addition to providing anti-inflammatory compounds, chamomile has been shown to help people fall asleep faster, and sleep is essential when you’re not feeling well.
Honey: Honey has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, and it also has been shown to be as effective as cough medication. Look for organic honey, raw honey or Manuka.
All-fruit popsicles: Popsicles can offer immediate relief. Make your own or look for brands made with pureed fruit and/or fruit juice and no added sugar. Four that meet that criteria include:
· Power of Fruit Bars (one bar equals ½ daily fruit serving)
· Whole Fruit Bars: Strawberry (added bonus is 1 gram of fiber)
· Edy’s Outshine (35 percent of daily vitamin C)
· Blue Bell Fruit Bars
Smoothies: If you’re having trouble swallowing because of a sore throat, a smoothie can become a complete meal providing protein, nutrient-rich carbs, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Blend a handful of spinach with Greek yogurt, milk or water, frozen fruit, fresh ginger root, turmeric, and black pepper.
