  1. Shift your mindset to actions that you have TOTAL CONTROL over (vs. some or no control)
  2. Whole foods = preventative medicine
  3. Plan ahead (batch cook, but don’t panic buy or hoard food)
  4. Nutrients of focus: protein, vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc
  5. Stay hydrated (hot liquids help break up the mucus in the lungs)
  6. Hand hygiene & frequently clean high touch surfaces
  7. Parasympathetic recovery (support your rest, digest, and recovery pathways)
  8. Sunlight & fresh air are natural germicidal agents
  9. Practice gratitude & stoicism
  10. Take action NOW and be proactive on what you have direct control over. Don’t panic, but be prepared.

  1. Bonnie, Like this approach, simple and straightforward. I am not big on portioning of small medium and large or the proverbial deck of cards. Decks of cards are for Poke, Euchre or Cribbage, not food. 🙂


  2. all good stuff and surprisingly tasty with a little imagination. specially like the vitamin c a d and zinc!!
