Mamas, I’ve got the immunity boosting smoothie you need. Moms don’t get to take time off from “momming” when we’re sick. Our best strategy is to prevent illness from happening in the first place. It’s only September, but my boys have been hit with colds and croup. I’m happy to say my diet, 9 pm blue-haired bedtime and frequent hand-washing routines have kept me in the clear.
It’s tempting to throw money at popular supplements like elderberry or garlic. But, evidence would show it’s our overall diet that matters. Meal patterns which include fiber-rich foods, probiotics and colorful produce is key. No ONE food or drink should be touted out as the immunity superfood. The key is to regularly include a variety of nutrient-dense foods.
