In my attempt to knock this cold out of my system as quickly as possible, I have been focusing on eating and drinking foods that will help to get me to healthy. I created a smoothie that includes lots of nutrients to combat colds and viruses.
Apples and strawberries- both are good sources of vitamin C and antioxidants
Orange Juice- lots of vitamin C
Kale, Spinach, and Beets- for Vitamin C and antioxidants
Garlic- antioxidants and boosts immunity
Ginger- boosts immunity and suppresses coughing
Greek yogurt with probiotics help to boost the immune system
High in antioxidants
Most of the fruits and vegetables I used had been frozen, so my smoothie came out cold enough. However, if your ingredients are room temperature you might want to add in some ice cubes. I also made my own iced green tea by making regular green tea in a pitcher and leaving it in the refrigerator until chilled.
Enjoy and stay healthy!
