Resource Guide Series: Recipes for a Lung Healthy Meal

Enjoy our recipes? We’ve put a meal together just for you.

Eating a balanced and healthy diet is important, but for people with chronic lung diseases, not all foods are created equally. Foods such as cured meats, dairy and cruciferous vegetables can cause symptom flare-ups, such as wheezing, increased mucus production and shortness of breath. While avoiding foods that can cause your symptoms to flare is important, it can be difficult to think of foods you can eat. Even with all of the alternatives, fatigue can make feeling up to cooking a healthy meal challenging.

At the Lung Institute, we want to help you feel better and breathe easier, so we’ve created Exhale: A Mini-Meal Recipe Guide as the first in our resource guide series. This interactive and downloadable recipe guide is a complete meal. It can be printed, so you can store it with your other recipes and use it whenever you want.
