Immunity juice

I avoided getting sick this winter. I feel like I can say that now that it’s March and the first official day of spring came and went on Friday. Now, this was no small feat: I work in healthcare, and I can’t count how many rounds of the common cold, the flu, gastroenteritis, and pinkeye came through my workplace this year. Yikes. I’m chalking my victory up to a strong immune system assisted by plenty of sleep, nutrition, and Theives spray on my office equipment on the reg. 

If you find yourself needing a boost, this juice might provide some help. Brilliantly colored by beets, turmeric, and carrots, it is packed with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory nutrients, and loads of vitamins C and A. I love my juicer (an Omega J8006), but if you don’t have one, check out my Winter Goodness Smoothie, which can be made in a good blender, and substitute turmeric for the ginger. 

Brilliant color, huh?
