Unfortunately Winter is making it’s explosive and unfashionably late entrance right about NOW, leaving many of us with a surprise case of the sniffles. We all know the feeling way too well, itchy throat, drippy nose, and those chills (sans Netflix), that make you want to crawl into bed until winter is over.

Now, I am no doctor (despite diligently watching every epi of Grey’s Anatomy), but I am all for being proactive- boosting your immune system by fuelling up on superfoods and antioxidant rich eats!  We have rounded up all the frigid fixes for this blustery season, so that you can enjoy sweater weather, germ free. In fact these recipes, remedies and elixirs will have you channeling your inner Elsa, revelling in all the glory of winter, because the cold never bothered you, anyway!
