I absolutely despise being sick. The achy pain and congestion, the staying at home in bed all day with a mountain of runny-nose tissues…not. for. me.
Today I made this delicious smoothie for my sickly grandpa. Thought I’d share the recipe given the recent flu epidemic that has unavoidably caught up to a lot of my friends 😦
-2 slices of frozen pineapple (I freeze my fruit to avoid adding ice)
-1 cup of natural orange juice
-a handful of frozen strawberries
-4 sliced bits of ginger (you can substitute the ginger with garlic)
***Adding ginger or garlic to your meals can help alleviate colds symptoms, since both help build a strong immune system. Garlic also posses several antiviral, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
*Also, Ginger snaps or other kinds of ginger candy, so so so good! and good for colds 🙂
Live Good. Eat Good. Feel Good.
And Stay Healthy!
