anti inflamitory smoothie

Has your house hold beed dropping like flies with this dreaded cold that has been going around? It just wont seem to go away. This is the second time this month we have all been sick………! I find it frustrating because my diet has been quite healthy and I sleep quite a bit…..I guess my immune system is not as strong as I think it is. I plan on sending this last cold packing as fast as I can, so I’m boosting my immune system with all the right foods. I was inspired to make this smoothie after seeing a similar drink on the clean eating blog Spinach4Breakfast. It’s almost like a miracle in a glass…. 😉 Ginger has many healing properties like soothing an upset stomach or indigestion but did you know it’s great for getting rid of throat and nose congestion as well. Turmeric is also a great spice to include in your diet for health reasons. Curcumin, a compound found in turmeric is known to have anti-inflammatory properties that helps boost immunity. Oranges contain vitamin C and it is believed that loading up on this nutrient may help slightly shorten the length of time your are sick and the severity of your symptoms. So this smoothie has all of the properties to help send your cold packing! If you are not sick but think you might be coming down with something this would be a great tonic to boost up your immune system.
