Home Remedy: Smoothie versus Sniffles October 20, 2015
The weather is getting colder and unfortunately this means our bodies are going to start to revolt. We’re doing the best we can by washing our hands, getting our shots, and avoiding those that are sick, but sometimes the best defense against seasonal illness starts from within. No, I don’t just mean you should think healthy thoughts! (Although, it can’t hurt.) I’m talking about eating the right stuff so your body gets the tools it needs to fight back when infection attacks.
You can gulp down the vitamin C packets from your local pharmacy all you want but HelloFresh prefers you to actually enjoy staying healthy, and that means making it delicious. So start your blenders, folks! Sweet, juicy fruit packed with vitamin C to help your immune system and spicy ginger & chili to clear up sinuses join forces to bring you the HelloFresh Super Smoothie. (Patent pending).
HelloFresh Super Smoothie
- 1 tbsp grate ginger
- 2 tbsp pomegranate seeds
- 1 banana
- 1 apple
- A couple thin slices of chilli
- Almond milk
- 1 handful kale
- Grated dark chocolate (to sprinkle on top)
Now, we’re not doctors but the ingredients here do all the talking. A smoothie like this crammed with nutrients can only be good news when you’re fending off the autumn cold. We are your secret weapon against the sniffling coworker who comes in despite his congestion, and this smoothie is your force-field.
Drink up, rest up, stay warm and enjoy!
