The 10 best meals to eat when you feel your worst
Hippocrates had it right when he said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” When your body feels out of whack, certain foods can help set you back on the right track.
1. When you have a headache
Eat: Moroccan lentil soup made with spices like turmeric and cinnamon. “This meal is free of potential headache triggers like dairy, cured meat, nuts, and chocolate. Plus, it also doesn’t require chewing, which can aggravate a headache,” says Cynthia Sass, RD, author of Slim Down Now: Shed Pounds and Inches With Pulses – The New Superfood. The soup also delivers a good dose of protein, anti-inflammatory spices, and magnesium – which helps relax blood vessels to ease headaches.
2. When you have sinus pressure
Eat: anything spicy – the heat in chili peppers can help clear up types of sinus inflammation, according to research from the University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center.
