Feed a fever, starve a cold.  Or is it the other way around?  No matter, there are ways to feed your allergies that may help prevent itchy eyes and runny noses!

My husband and son both suffer miserably at times with allergies.  The runny noses, the sniffling and itchy eyes can really take the fun out of a nice day.  They both of course use a prescription to fight the symptoms, but now we've found there's more we can do to help relieve those symptoms!

HealwithFood.org  offers a variety of recipes including an Apple and Onion Soup  that may help relieve your symptoms.  Yahoo! Health  reports onions and apples contain quercetin, a secret weapon that helps fight allergies by acting like an antihistamine.

How about a Broccoli Salad  to help with those blocked up sinuses?  Broccoli contains vitamin C, which the experts say eases symptoms as well.  (Citrus fruits obviously work to relieve symptoms as well.) 

Here's another allergy fighting recipe:  Green Pea and Mushroom Risotto.  Mushrooms are also thought to be beneficial because of their high selenium content.
