It's that time of year where everyone, at one point or another, will probably get sick (sorry, but you have to know that it is coming!). No matter how many precautions you take, cleaning or wearing sickness masks, sometimes you can't fend off sickness.

So what do you do when you get sick? Most of us just moan miserably in bed while binge-watching our favorite show. However, I don't think many of us really think of eating as being a solution to getting better, I mean doesn't the old saying go, "feed a cold, starve a fever?"

Well, that no longer may be completely accurate as science has proven that there are five foods that can actually fight a cold.

1. Oysters

2. Garlic

3. Kiwi

4. Almonds

5. Chicken Soup

As much as you may not want to eat when your sick, these have been proven to speed up recovery and may be worth a try! For the full science behind why these help, check out the full article.
