Don't Let The Holidays Get You Down

So the holiday season is upon us and so is the season for colds and flu. With the passing of money back and forth with holiday shopping and the elevated stress levels it's a given you're going to get sick.

Not to worry though, The Daily Green has some advice that will help keep you healthy this winter.

For instance, I never knew that eating carrots would help get rid of headaches or that tomatoes could ease the pain of minor burns.

thedailygreen.com: Phytonutrients in fresh produce, like the beta carotene in carrots, can reduce inflammation in the blood vessels of the brain. Eating two cups a day can help some people reduce headache incidence by 70%!

For minor burns, slice a tomato and apply it to the burn, allowing the juice to fully dry. Tomatoes have nature's healthiest dose of lycopene, which is anti-inflammatory.

Be sure to check out the other tips at TheDailyGreen.com and let us know your great winter tips by leaving us a comment.
