The Super Immunity Diet

By adhering to the Super Immunity Diet, Dr. Fuhrman believes you’ll be able to strengthen your immunity up to 10 times within approximately a 2-month period.

Start With a Hot Breakfast: Super Seed Oatmeal

Start with slow-absorbing steel-cut oats that promote digestive-tract health. Add some flaxseed, sunflower seeds and fruit, such as blueberries, packed with phytonutrients to also boost immune health. You’ll feel comforted by this dish's warmth and maintain a feeling of fullness longer than if you were to eat simple white carb-based cereals that rush into the blood stream too rapidly.

Lunch Should Always Be A Salad: Caesar’s Secret Salad
Make salad your main dish at lunchtime. Start with a bowl of leafy greens, the darker in color the better, such as phytonutrient-rich kale or spinach.  Top with some of your 10% daily meat intake as a “condiment.” Dress with one of Dr. Fuhrman’s nut-based dressings, such as his Cashew Dressing or nut-based Caesar dressing which help to facilitate the absorption of the anti-cancer and immune-boosting phytochemicals found in the greens and other vegetables.

Stick With Stew for Dinner: Goji Chili
A veggie-based stew packed with beans that act as slowly digestible starches and phytonutrient-rich greens makes a satisfying dinner that’s also easy to prepare. Make it in advance and live off the same stew throughout the week to save cooking time. Dr. Fuhrman’s Goji Chili Stew is loaded with red beans, black beans, pinto beans and antioxidant-rich goji berries. Plus, it contains lively spices and herbs so you don’t have to rely on salt or sugar for flavor.
