It is no secret that we are getting closer to “Cold and Flu Season”…
There are many reasons why we may get sick more often in the winter (and some may surprise you!)
- Less sunlight or time spent outdoors (means less Vitamin D for us)
- We eat more sugar which naturally suppresses our immune system
- Breathing in less fresh air (possibly spreading more germs in closed buildings)
Whatever the reasons are… I’ll just be over here sipping on some immune boosting wassail in my Christmas cup : )
When I posted on Facebook about my mom’s wassail, I got so many questions about what wassail is – which was surprising since I grew up drinking it during the fall and winter months.
