7 Immunity Boosting Recipes for Moms

We've had a brutal few days over here. Two emergency pediatric dental visits, one trip to the pediatrician, and three cases of the stomach flu. Our fourth family member practically has a neon sign with an arrow pointing down reading, "Sitting Duck."

As I stood in the pediatrician's office, holding my two year old and a urine sample cup with my mouth hanging open as my five year old daughter covered their bathroom floor in vomit, I was pretty sure that I would be getting the stomach flu very soon. What gave me that idea? Possibly my shoe slipping in vomit on the floor or the splashy throw-up that covered my jacket sleeve and hand.

Even the pediatrician looked pretty sure I was going to get the stomach flu. By Saturday night I was down for the count, and it sure wasn't fun. While I was sick all night, I just kept thinking about how happy I was that I was sick while my kids were sleeping. Let's face it. When you're a mom with tiny kids and you're sick, NO ONE CARES.

While there's probably not much you can do to protect yourself when you're covered in vomit, there are other steps you can take to increase your immunity and keep yourself healthy. Keep reading for 7 Immunity Boosting Recipes for Moms. Start now and dodge that stomach flu, it's a doozy!
