Green Juice,Green SmoothieA few years ago, I used keep falling sick, catching the common cold was very common and so being down with the Flu. It took me a while to figure out that it was my immunity that was terrible. Once i became aware of this,I started to find ways to improve my immunity.

2 things that I did was – Drink a glass of warm water and lemon juice and honey every morning on an empty stomach.The 2nd was to start drinking a green smoothie.While with the warm water and lemon juice, I stopped adding honey, the green smoothie keeps getting tweaked regularly.

Did this help my immunity ? I think it did. The effects weren’t immediate, but after about 6 months of doing this regularly I noticed an improvement and now that I have been regular, I find that it’s not often I fall ill. And I notice that my immunity starts to get impacted again when I’m irregular with this regime.

Here is my recipe for my health concoction :

  • 1 / 2  an apple or 1 small banan
  • A few pieces of beetroot
  • 1/2  a carrot
  • Greens leaves that I  have in my fridge like – Spinach or Amaranth
  • A sprig of Mint – Optional
  • A small piece of ginger
  • 1 / 2 teaspoon of organic Spirulina powder
  • Acai seeds or Flax seeds
  • 1 / 2  teaspoon  of Moringa powder
  • Put all these with a little water in a high-speed blender and blend into a smoothie.
  • If you want to sweeten it add either honey, stevia powder or like I do a tsp of peanut butter in the blender and your smoothie is ready.

Drink and Go!
