Finally this week, everyone has been feeling better and no one is coughing anymore. Yay!!! But I started to feel achy with a sore throat and an ear ache right at the beginning of the week. Knowing that we have some special events coming up this weekend, I just knew I could not afford to get sick. So, because I believe in vitamins and healthy and clean eating I took it to my smoothies to help me feel better. That's right.
First of all, I avoided all dairy (milk), because there are many studies and my personal experience have shown me that whenever I start to feel a bit sick, congested with a sore throat, milk actually makes it worse. So for breakfast that first day I had an Apple with Kale Smoothie. Kale is a super food with a very high content of vitamin C. Exactly what I needed!!!
So I got my ingredients out and took them to my blender.
Apple with Kale Smoothie
2 apples (I used Gala)
2 handfuls of kale
1/2 cup of almond milk
1/2 cup of water
This has been my favorite green smoothie so far and I was so glad to have come up with the recipe! I loved the texture from the apples, it made it juicy and chunky, and I loved getting a high boost of Vitamin C (from the kale and the apples) for my system that sure needed it!
I had the same smoothie again at dinner time and at breakfast the following morning.
I feel great and achy feeling is gone!!! bye bye germs!
Give it a try and let me know how you like it!
