What to Eat When You Have a Cold
Unsweetened Greek Yogurt
Pick plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt and skyr when you’re feeling under the weather. Protein-rich foods (2/3 cup of yogurt has about 20 grams!) are key to helping the cells of your immune system regenerate. I also recommend choosing non-fat or low-fat kinds — not because of the calorie content, but because colds have a tendency to zap appetite. Since fat is filling, I’d rather you get enough protein by eating as much of that yogurt as you can.
