To help increase your immunity this cold and flu season, give yourself an extra boost of vitamin C (no supplements required!). This antioxidant is found in a wide range of foods from potatoes to bell peppers. Check out these 5 delicious, vitamin-C rich recipes.

The Guidelines
The recommended daily amount of vitamin C is 60 milligrams. Each of the recipes below contains at least 20% (or 12 milligrams) of your daily recommended dose.

Vitamin C has many other roles besides helping stave off the common cold. It also helps form collagen, a building block of connective tissue that gives strength to skin, hair, and nails.  Vitamin C also helps increase the body’s absorption of iron.

The Recipes

Beef Pops With Pineapple and Parsley Sauce (above)
These bite-sized skewers get most of their vitamin C from the pineapple chunks. Surprisingly, the rest of the vitamin C (over 15% of your daily dose) is from the chopped parsley.

Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry
