Sore Throat? Try these 11 Foods
Feeling sick? Have an ache that won't go away?

With winter approaching and the temperatures dipping comes an elevated risk of you becoming ill.

One of the first warning signs of a cold is a sore throat, making it impossible to eat, sleep, talk, and do anything functional.

Knowing what's to follow (body aches, fever, headaches, etc), you might search for relief in the drug store with fruity lozenges and Chloraseptic-type spray.

However, the next time you feel your throat becoming sore or scratchy, head to the grocery store instead of the drug store. Many fruits, vegetables, and herbs are capable of saving the day with their antioxidant-rich powers. They can sometimes help you avoid that trip to the doctor.

What are the 11 foods that can soothe a sore throat?

  1. Banana
  2. Cabbage
  3. Cinnamon
  4. Cloves
  5. Eggs
  6. Garlic
  7. Ginger
  8. Lemon
  9. Oatmeal
  10. Pomegranate
  11. Sage

Listen in as Bridget Creel, Healthy Eating Editor at The Daily Meal, shares the 11 foods that can help soothe your sore throat.
