Exploring Cruciferous & Quercetin-Rich Recipes

Dr. Miaken Zeiger | Monday January 18, 2021

Join us in the kitchen!

We’re looking at preparing our own micronutrient soup with cruciferous vegetables and quercetin-rich foods!  In case you missed it, we talked about a micronutrient soup in our recent blog post: Promising Foods That Stop COVID, the Flu & Colds.

We all know choosing whole foods, consistently, is a principle of health… and it quite literally can change your health outcomes in how your body responds to cold, flu, and coronavirus exposure.

What exactly are “whole foods”?  They are foods that have been processed or refined as little as possible and are free from additives or artificial substances.

Healthy Intentions
Starting in 2021, we will be introducing our favorite recipes with cruciferous vegetables and quercetin rich-foods in mind.  And then I thought: it would be fun if we could do this together!

February 2021 Recipe
It’s any easy one friends – no cooking or complicated recipe to follow for this tasty and nutritious breakfast or afternoon snack. Super easy for you and the kids to assemble!

Ingredients & Recipe
Plain Yogurt (0% or 2% is preferred)
1 Kiwi (peeled, quartered, and sliced) tucked into the yogurt
1 handful of Blueberries sprinkled on top
1 heaping teaspoon of chopped Almonds scattered on the berries
1 teaspoon of local, organic Honey drizzled over the top

Add a slice of toasted whole-grain bread, peel a Cutie orange, and you are good to go!  While we especially love Kiwifruit – with one of the highest sources of Vitamin C – it is technically a berry!  Your toppings could be almost anything: strawberries, banana slices,  blackberries or raspberries; pecans, walnuts or granola.

Something Has to Change
The continuing trend of poor health is unsustainable to our medical system, and the personal costs are too great. You have the power and choice to change your trajectory in health. You don’t have to be a statistic. Research shows that those who choose chiropractic care are healthier individuals. Congratulations – you’re already making decisions to invest in your health. Let’s choose to do more this year, and get/stay healthy together.

As always, I am here as your partner in health, to change the health and vitality of our community. It’s your choice and I am with you all the way!

Love and appreciate you!
Dr. Miaken
