Super Immune Boosting Smoothie Challenge

by: wme_admin on


I walked into my local Shopping Centre today and I felt like turning around and walking straight out.  Every where I look, people… Coughing and sneezing!!! Its that time of year… I get it people get sick… it’s a part of life! We all know that there are many contributing factors to any type of illness, its always important to remember that no one shoe fits all.

I must have been super conscious of it today, and also the fact a good friend asked me for my morning smoothie recipe, just to see if it would help her 2 sick boys. My routine is pretty normal, and I sometimes forget that these little health tips can really benefit others… With most things consistency definitely helps, but its also important to be in tune with your body and recognise when we need to change things up.

 I challenge you to take on this “Super Immune Boosting Smoothie Challenge” for 1 month and see what happens!! The consequences could be –

  • Stronger immunity (fewer colds)
  • Dropped a few kg’s
  • Sleeping better
  • Skin is clearer
  • Better digestion (regular poo’s)
  • More energy
  • Clearer thinking
  • Fewer cravings

 This is my personal routine; you may need to make changes to suit you and your needs.

  • Get good nights sleep 8-10 hours Yes I know I am pushing the boundaries already here for some. This one is not easy for me either.
  • When you wake in the morning scrape your tongue and brush your teeth. See my blog on Tongue Scrapping.
  • Drink the biggest glass of warm lemon water with a dash of Apple Cider Vinegar you can muster (I like drink at least a litre)
  • Exercise! What ever your preference is, I do a half hour run or a HIIT Session 4-5 times a week and a heavy 45 min weight session once a week.
  • Drink your Immune Boosting Smoothie. 
  • Drink it slowly, enjoy it! Chew it, if that’s possible. Your smoothie should taste good, play around with the ingredients until you get a blend that your love. I add a little raw organic honey into my kids smoothies.

 

It’s a good idea to prepare smoothies the night before. Store in a couple of mason jars in the fridge or any airtight container.  I always have 2 for me, so I can snack on one later in the day.

* Note a powerful blender gets better results. If you don’t have one, you can juice the vegetables first then blend ingredients together.
