We’re in ‘that’ time of the year. A time that no one likes, not because it’s cold, but because everyone is starting to get sick. It’s a time where everyone visits the doctors more frequently and starts stocking up on painkillers for those unwanted headaches and runny noses.
We always hear about taking vitamins to boost and support our immunity, but why not try making some homemade juices that not only look good (most of the time) but are good for our bodies as well. We’re talking about those juices that everyone always raves about is “so good for you”, and come to think of it, helping to keep those nasty germs away doesn’t sound like a bad idea (Bonus: you’ll get some great pics for your Instagram too).
Here are some of the ingredients that you need to get familiar with and how they will help you by adding essential vitamins to your body. A, B6, C and E are some key vitamins that you’ll be feeding your body by using these following ingredients. Start off with fruits like: orange, apple, grapefruit, mango, strawberry and watermelon. Then add extra nutrients by combining them with some vegetables like: carrot, kale, celery, spinach and beet. Other extras, and these are totally optional, is to add ginger, turmeric, chia seeds, coconut or almond shavings and mint to top it off.
