With the onset of COVID-19, the flu, and the common cold, our immune system will need all the help it can get. While healthy foods will not necessarily prevent colds and other illnesses, a proper diet is crucial to maintaining a strong immune system. Give yourself – and your taste buds – a boost with these nutritious, delicious foods:
· Button mushrooms: Enjoy them raw or cooked for immune-boosting selenium, riboflavin, and niacin.
· Yogurt: The probiotics in yogurt can help ease the severity of colds. Make sure the label says, “live and active cultures.”
· Spinach: Eat raw or lightly cooked spinach for maximum benefits including folate (folic acid) and Vitamin C.
· Sweet potatoes: These contain one of the richest natural sources of beta-carotene, which your body converts into Vitamin A to support your immune system and gut health.
· Broccoli: Phytochemicals in broccoli are great for the immune system so serve up a healthy portion anyway you like it – raw, roasted, or steamed.
· Garlic: It packs so many flavors and that is not all. Some studies have shown that eating garlic can reduce the frequency and duration of colds.
· Ginger: Add fresh ginger to stir-fries for a spicy kick, and because it is a great source of antioxidants.
· Red peppers: Citrus fruits are known for their Vitamin C, but red peppers actually contain about 3 times more Vitamin C than oranges, and Acerola cherries are extremely high in Vitamin C.
· Chicken soup: That old saying about chicken soup turns out to be true. If you do have a cold, a nice hot bowl of it can help ease your symptoms and get you on the road to recovery faster.
Quick and Easy Chili
As the temperatures start to drop, you will need warming, crowd-pleasing recipes that are fast and easy to prepare. Chili is a great option. You can season it to your liking and add or substitute ingredients to suit your tastes.
1 pound chopped beef, chicken, or turkey
1 large chopped onion
1 chopped green or red pepper (optional)
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1 can red or pink beans
1 can chopped tomatoes or tomato sauce
Sauté your choice of chopped meat over medium heat until brown, seasoning it with salt, pepper, and chili powder to taste. Stir in the chopped onion and pepper, and cook until the onions turn translucent. Add the can of beans with liquid. Let simmer for 2 minutes, uncovered. Add tomato sauce or chopped tomatoes with juice. Simmer uncovered, 5-7 minutes, or until desired consistency – not too dry but with just enough liquid to be saucy, but not soupy. Add more chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve over rice, couscous, or noodles.

“I’m James Lincoln and I don’t make empty promises. You’ll find out who I am in the coming days and months...”

“Why do I need your sexy white ass to marry my curvy black behind to solve whatever issues you think I have, hmm?”
~ Jayla King.
~ A Flirty & Feisty Romance Novel: Love for real ~
“Can I massage your sexy muscles?”
When Vlogger, Jayla King scorned by love in the past directs her flirty question to the guy with a toned butt, bewitching blue eyes and chiselled muscles, she has no idea who he is or what he is after. He is over-the-line hot, period! Although arrogant, he is a luxury white chocolate bar laced with rum.
When he counters with a series of questions, she becomes suspicious of his motives and backs away! But she stays long enough to find out his dark side…
Now she knows the
road to his
“If you take off your nose ring,” he raised one full dark eyebrow. “I might oblige you.”
Cocky and living a great lifestyle while putting the dark times behind, along with his narrow-minded family, New Orleans mansion owner, James Lincoln replies with a cheeky question when YouTuber, Jayla disrupts his morning.
He should have ignored her and walked on.
Instead, his fantasy becomes reality when the woman with breath-taking laughter, sun-glazed skin and a sinfully-sweet curvy booty flips on his heart switch like no other woman.
When he offers her more than she asks for, she spits out the loudest, ‘NO’ on the planet! Yet, she drives him out of his mind. The moment he finds out her dirty secret, she brings out the worst in him.
“We’re done, Jayla!”
He doesn’t need a fairy-tale ending now, or ever! He is better off without her belly pouch, flabby arms and stretch-marked cleavage anyway until a freaking incident…
As his expectation comes crashing down, will James walk away for good, or will he and Jayla choose each other?

Read a Snippet from Choose Me
James watched the fruity juice stain the corners of Jayla’s lips.
Despite the severe talk he had with himself before the evening began, he lunged forward, cupped Jayla’s neck with one hand and meshed her lips with his own.
With his tongue, he wiped the sweet goo around her lips, pushed further inside her mouth, hoping to make her feel all the emotions charging through him.
Folding her hands around his neck as she moaned, she fried his tongue with hers. Jayla stroked and stoked flames inside his mouth, steering a storm down south. While her head fell back, he padded her nape with one hand until she laid on the rug and he pressed his chest over her cleavage.
With his body heating up fast, he brushed his hand past the keyhole of her dress to mould his fingers around her boobs. Her soft flesh scalded his fingers. When he ached to the point his body vibrated, he rolled off her body.
“I’m taking you home, Jayla.”
“Why is that?”
“Why not, James?”
“I didn’t want to lure you into my bed. That would be too obvious. So, I’m going to stop.”
When he stood and helped her to her feet, he saw her lips tremble as she pulled down her dress.
Tonight, he had deepened his grip on her mind and body. She craved his stare. More than that, she yearned for one more kiss, or two.

“Maybe if you weren’t so cynical about my motives, you’ll see that I find you too damn attractive to care about any other woman. And I’m not going to take no for an answer. Got it?”
He tipped his head to the side.
Laughter gushed out of her mouth in the same way water poured down the steep incline of a cliff.
“What a breath-taking laughter you’ve got, Jayla.”
“Thank you. But I’m sorry to disappoint you, James. I’m not attracted to you. Maybe if I were–”
He reached out one hand and curled his fingers behind her neck. The second her warm skin hit his palm, whatever she had to say melted in her throat. While teasing her with his eyes, he stroked the side of her face with featherlike caresses.
She licked her lips. He did not stop, instead he traced his fingers along her rounded jaw and perched his thumb under her bottom lip.
Gripping his waist with both hands, Jayla shut her eyes and parted her lips.
Power-driven current spread through his chest and his entire body. A soft moan slipped out of her half-opened lips. She inhaled deeply, lifting her large boobs to arouse his senses. He ground his teeth because he wanted more than a kiss from her.
“I want more than a hot kiss from you, Jayla King.”
The woman who accepted no bull shit slanted her head to the side.
So, he cupped her left cheek and rubbed her satin-smooth, glowing skin with his right thumb.
Jayla sucked on her bottom lip and dropped her dark lashes. In the meantime, his pulse was doing above crazy sprints.
“Say something, Jayla,” he urged.
“What do you want me to say?” She sounded as if her breath was hitched in her throat.
“Say you want me.”
