IN NEED OF SOME IMMUNE TLC?
Don’t know about you, but this winter has taken it out of me and I’m finding that I am in real need of some immune support.
This green smoothie is as simple as it is delicious!
1 apple 1/3 cucumber 1/2 unwaxed organic lemon 1/2-1 inch ginger
Hf spinach Hf of each coriander and parsley 1tbsp pea protein powder 1tsp powdered probiotics Ice (optional)
Blend and enjoy!
Cucumber provides much needed electrolytes. If you are ill and have fever you are losing fluid from your body, electrolytes help you stay hydrated. Soluble fiber in the apples feed gut bacteria and subsequently help the immune system. Ginger is highly antibacterial spinach, lemon, parsley and coriander among others are high in the antioxidant vitamin C. Extremely important for a strong immune system. Additionally protein is needed for the proper functioning of the immune system so I added pea protein powder. If you are not dairy intolerant whey protein may be an even better option here. To round or off, I added some good bacteria in the form of a probiotics powder.
