Nourishment Notes

Sweet Potato

Sweet potatoes are loaded with beta carotene, which is turned into vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is critical for a healthy immune system.

Red Pepper

Red peppers are loaded with vitamin C and carotenoids. Both are powerful antioxidants that can prevent damage to healthy cells in the body and lower inflammation.


Chicken is a lean source of protein and may provide your body with the building blocks it needs to build healthy cells.

Breathe Better Food Tip

  • Salicylates

    Sweet potatoes, zucchini and peppers can be high in salicylates. If you find them bothersome, try substituting with low salicylate vegetables, like Brussels sprouts or white potatoes.

  • Sulfites

    Parmesan cheese contains sulfites, omit if bothersome.
