Homemade Wellness Shot

650 433 Sheridan Gregory
With my whole family sick, I’ve been trying every possible way to stay healthy. I still haven’t gotten whatever flu//cold bug they have & I’m crossing my fingers so I don’t! I whipped up a batch of my homemade wellness shot recipe for everyone (not Kannon, he just got a green smoothie :)) & the flavor is strong but man are these little things powerful! I highly recommend making these if you are sick or even if you feel like you are going to get sick.
Wellness Shot Recipe
3 stalks of celery
1/2 of a cucumber
Pinch of cilantro
1 lemon peeled but keep the pith(white stuff)
1 granny smith apple
2 inch piece of ginger root
Dash of cayenne pepper on top
*Buy organic produce if at all possible! Juice in a juicer & voila! You have a super healthy wellness shot that is sure to kick any cold//flu bug!!
Here are the benefits of all of the ingredients…
*Lemon– Combats infections & has antibacterial properties. It really helps if you have a sore throat!
 
*Green Apple– Helps to boost your immune system. An apple a day really does keep the doctor away! 😉
 
*Celery– Helps fight bacteria, viruses & inflammation. Also helps stimulate the immune system, which means it’s going to help your body fight off that nasty cold//flu!
*Ginger Root– Believed to help treat headaches & other cold//flu-like symptoms. Winning!
*Cucumber– An excellent source of vitamin C & A (anti-oxidants). Made up of about 96% water so it”s a great way to keep you hydrated while sick.
 *Cilantro– Also a great anti-oxidant & also has anti-bacterial & anti-fungal properties. My hubby loooves cilantro 🙂


You can also add a dash of Cayenne Pepper for its anti-flu & cold properties. I’m kind of allergic to it so I avoid it when possible!


Hope this helps you guys fight those nasty bugs going around! If you have any questions, feel free to comment below or email me! & also, keep letting me know what posts you want to see! I love hearing from you guys!
