A little wheat germ goes a long way. Just two tablespoons provides about 15% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin E which is great for boosting the immune system and giving your skin a glow from the inside out. Wheat germ is full of key nutrients beneficial to the body at winter time, including calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, zinc, omega-6 fatty acids and omega-3 fatty acids. Incorporate it into a stew or casserole as a thickener - a bit like cornflour. You can also sprinkle it over cereal and porridge or mix it into a yogurt or smoothie. We like Jordan's natural wheatgerm 375g, £1.36.
