MyCOPDTeam has partnered with the Home Rehab Network to bring you videos filled with helpful tips and exercises that you can do from the comfort of your own home.
It’s important for anyone with a chronic illness to eat nutritious foods. While many people think healthy eating is short on flavor, it can be easy to cook something anyone would want for dinner. In this video, respiratory therapist Alex Grichuhin from the Home Rehab Network shows how to make chicken with cranberry-pear chutney. “Chicken is a terrific choice for people with COPD because it contains L-Cysteine, an amino acid that helps repair damaged lung tissues,” says Alex. “In addition, the ginger in the recipe helps boost the immune system.”
