Hey cool cats
Does the sight of all the tissues and antibacterial gel lining the supermarket promotional shelves give you the heebie-jeebies? Us too. It means it's THAT time again. Cold and flu season.Yuck.
Sure, go ahead and stock up on the tissues if it makes you feel better. But while you're there, why not also raid the fruit and veggie aisle for immunity boosting produce?
Creating your own juices are an awesome way to boost your immune system during the winter months.
"Most people don’t feel like eating when they’re sick, but staying hydrated is vital for your body to keep fighting off the infection. Green juices are an easy way to get your daily serve of green vegetables, providing an infusion of vitamins, minerals and enzymes, that can be delivered straight into your system," Mod's nutritionist, Lonny says.
Fruit and veg with a high water content is ideal when you're not well.
"Celery and cucumbers are high in water, which is extremely important as your detoxification organs need water in order to work and flush out toxins. Water also keeps lymph fluid moving, so the immune system can do its job properly.
"If you’re a fan of ginger, you can add as much as you like, as not only will it give your juice a nice kick, but it also has powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties."
Flu fighter juice recipe:
1½ cups spinach
1 large kale leaf
2 ribs of celery
½ green apple
1cm cube of ginger
Simply place all ingredients through your Mod and enjoy!
To your health!
Peace and juice x
