A two-week grocery haul may pressure people only to buy non-perishable foods. However, the World Health Organization says the opposite: prioritize fresh produce. According to a study in Nutrients, we need a variety of nutrients to strengthen our immune systems, most of which come from fresh food.
TODAY recommends buying perishable foods that last a long while. Examples include oranges, cheese, garlic, onions, apples, bread, potatoes, eggs, and bananas. You don’t have to live on just canned soup and pasta.
