I’ve been feeling a cold coming on lately, so have been loading up on more veggies to try and fight it. Being sick is the worst, and my weak immune system does nothing for me when fighting off infections, so I end up being sick for 3X longer than the normal person. This year I’m determined to avoid that.
My favorite immune boosting snack comes straight from my juicer. It makes it so easy to take in a mass amount of nutrients that you normally couldn’t eat in a whole sitting, and it’s easy on the stomach. Below is my go-to recipe…it’s simple, quick, and cuts to the point; great for your daily routine or when you’re feeling down.
1 Cucumber (peeled if not organic)
3-4 stalks of Celery
1 Carrot (peeled if not organic)
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
2 Ice Cubes
1). Prepare your glass with a dash of Turmeric, 2 Ice Cubes, and a squeeze of Lemon
2). Juice 1/2 of Cucumber….Celery…Carrot…and 1/2 Cucumber…(In that order!)
3.) Pour the blend over the ice and enjoy with a straw.
*You can always add more Lemon Juice and/or Turmeric if needed/wanted.
Tumeric is not a usual ingredient in green juices, but I have come to love the spice it gives. It’s also one of the best things to boost the immune system, among a LONG list of other great benefits. It’s pretty much the go-to fix-it herb. Read about it here.
