Today I’m feeling a wee bit under the weather. As I write this I’m sitting in by big fluffy dressing gown lounging on the couch with a sore throat and head cold. I hate being sick in summer, but the sad news is that tomorrow is officially the last day of summer (not that we’ve had much of a summer anyway!). And cooler weather means more cold and flu bugs which we can help immune ourselves from if we look after our selves.
Part of keeping well means eating well – including lots of vegetables and fruit. While it’s good to eat lots, to get a bit extra in, juicing can be a good option. I found these combinations on Pinterest this morning and I’m so craving the carrot, apple and ginger one right now. Ginger has anti-inflammatory and immune boosting properties. Apples provide vitamin C, and carrots provide carotenoids, and they both are sources of antioxidants. Just what I need right now.
