The power of natural

This time of year is prime time for colds and flus –  people are heading for their flu-shots trying to  prevent the dreaded symptoms of flu, headaches, aching bodies, sneezing and endless running noses.

At the checkout counter in the supermarket we find not only candy to tempt us, but also bags of vitamin C powder that magically is supposed to help us fight the flu.

In my life instead of pills, tablets and bags of vitamin C,  I prefer boosting my immune system the natural way, with freshly squeezed delicious juices – that are naturally packed with fresh vitamins and minerals. Like this one, for instance, freshly squeezed carrot juice with apples, lemon and ginger, made with all fresh organic ingredients.  Carrots, filled with vitamin A, organic local apples filled with fibre, minerals, and vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, C, E, K, as well as loaded with antioxidants.  Slices of fresh ginger that are packed with goodness and always has been known and praised, for its medicinnal powers to cure all kinds of ailments such as nausea, colds etc

Along with freshly squeezed lemon, with its high content of vitamin C and  its power to clear up colds. This is a seriously healthy drink which tastes delicious at the same time!

I believe this is so much more powerful than any vitamin supplement,  it’s natural, fresh and potent. A perfect way to boost our immune system naturally.

Green Juicy Juice

I have been so spoiled lately!  Last weekend I went to Montreal with my beautiful daughter – just the two of us! Wow, what a treat, spending time alone with her was so precious!

Then this weekend I went skiing with some girl friends. Both of these experiences were like big-time tonic for my soul.

 

The down side is however that while traveling it can be hard to maintain healthy habits and routines. I love joining the party and eating what everyone else is eating and I treasure visiting interesting restaurants and eat whatever takes my fancy.

But I also love to get back home and squeeze myself a rejuvenating green juice. Its the perfect way to recoup and getting back into the rhythm again .
