Beat Bronchitis With Proper Nutrition

Margaux Tip Grpahic

Bronchitis bites, but your diet can help!

Nutritional therapy practitioner and FitPerez correspondent Margaux Jean has some tips to eat right while experiencing this painful inflammation of the lungs:

Have you ever had bronchitis? I know many people who are dealing with this right now! Bronchitis is an inflammation of the bronchial tubes that is usually characterized by a deep cough in the chest and congestion in the upper region of the body. It’s typically caused by bacteria, a virus, or exposure to chemicals or smoke. If you have bronchitis, make sure that you are eating fruits and vegetables high in vitamin C and beta carotene.

Such foods could include kale, Brussels sprouts, bell peppers, sweet potatoes, kiwifruit, and Swiss chard. Garlic is has antibiotic properties on the lungs, so find ways to include it into your diet. Legumes, chia seeds from The Chia Co, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds are full of nutrients that will help your body get well. Some healing herbs for bronchitis include cayenne, cinnamon, ginger, and thyme. Be sure to avoid dairy products, sugar, alcohol, and refined flour products. Get well soon!

Anyone want some blueberries??

The Denisof family does!

One of the coolest Hollywood families stepped out and enjoyed the sunshine at the local farmer's market in Brentwood, Calif. on Sunday.

They piled up on healthy groceries including fruits from local growers, then had play time in the park where little Satyana showed off her amazing blue and black polka dot leggings.

Mom Alyson Hannigan was all smiles as she and hubby Alexis Denisof walked through, looking at all the the various vendors. Maybe satisfying some pregnancy cravings?

Wonder what Aly's favorite food is when she's preggers!

This season's Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert, looks FANTASTIC on the cover of the most recent issue of Life & Style Magazine.

However, the reality romantic revealed she had to do some work to get her body into the great shape that it is now, ESPECIALLY after having her heart broken by Brad Womack in last season of The Bachelor.

She revealed she put on 10 pounds after some serious emotional eating, admitting:

“I was eating everything in sight. When you’re stressed out, you kind of just throw it back.”

To gear up for her turn as the ABC heartbreaker, she turned to a healthy, balanced diet and lots of exercising, saying:

“I don’t drink as much, and I don’t eat as many desserts as last time. Now it’s fruits, vegeta­bles, salads and chicken — staying healthy…I teach dance classes — jazz and hip-hop — so I get a good mix of exercise types”

She also takes advantage of combining weights and aerobics in Bodypump classes, which can burn up to 600 calories in an hour!

As you can see above, all of her hard work has DEFINITELY paid off and Ashley knows it too! In her interview for the magazine, she shared, "It’s a new, enlightened me. I’m happy. I’m in such a great place right now!”
