Rise and shine my loves!
I have not been feeling too hot. It feels like I have had a cold brewing for over a week now.
To boost my immune system I continue to take my multivitamin, Vitamin C and Echinacea,
eat lots of vitamin C packed foods,
sip on juices from Suja and Evolution Fresh,
eat lots of probiotic rich foods (since a healthy immune system starts with your GUT),
drink bone broth
(with some turmeric and black pepper for an added health kick)
and making a smoothie for breakfast every morning.
I just ordered this Vega protein powder that is DELICIOUS!
I add 1/2 a scoop of the protein powder, 1 scoop of collagen, coconut or almond milk and add in some frozen fruit.
How do I get this marvelous, gorgeous pink color smoothie you ask???
I add a frozen pity packet, commonly known as dragonfruit.
Pitaya is packed with nutrients, vitamins (it contains 50% of your daily vitamin C intake!!!), minerals, antioxidants, fiber and is low in carbs. It helps detoxify the body, control glucose levels, helps neutralize cell damaging free radicals, helps lower blood pressure and cholesterol, etc. etc. etc.
I tend to add pitaya into my smoothies especially when I need help with boosting my immune system and speeding up my recovery rate.
My shipment from Pitaya Plus just came in. They had 15% off over the Thanksgiving weekend, so I reloaded on these babies.
What a beauty 🙂
What are YOU doing this season to stay healthy?
Cheers (with some freshly squeeze OJ perhaps)!
