A long winter fighting germs can weaken immunity, doubling your risk of the springtime respirator­y bug coronaviru­s. But adding kale to your daily diet can help. Yale scientists say kale’s sulforapha­ne switches on genes that rev the production of virus-fighting white blood cells by up to 25 percent. DELICIOUS IDEAS: Make kale chips by tossing 4 cups of kale leaves with 1 Tbs. of olive oil, 1⁄4 tsp. salt, 1⁄4 tsp. pepper and 1⁄4 tsp. garlic powder; spread on baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 10 minutes. For a savory side, sauté 1 bunch of chopped kale with 1 Tbs. of olive oil and 1 tsp. of minced garlic, stirring occasional­ly, for 5 to 7 minutes.
