Simple choices can boost your immunity

  • John Dyke is the founder and CEO of Nashville’s only, locally owned natural foods grocer, Turnip Truck.

Combined with soaring temperatures and blue skies, fall in Central Tennessee brings the unwelcome elements of an increase in colds and viruses.

As a local organic grocer for nearly two decades, I am grateful that the science continues to back up what farmers and others who live close to nature have known all along: Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables will improve immunity — while consuming highly processed foods can harm Your health.

When I started running a turnip truck in East Nashville about 20 years ago, I set out to bring the farm fresh foods I grew up enjoying to my neighbors.

After crossing paths with them at farmers markets and health stores across Nashville, I learned that there was a demand for natural fare in the heart of the city.
