Creamy Sweet Citrus: Immunity


healthy-happy-life

I have made this same recipe over the past few days for a few reasons.  The first is that it tastes fantastic!  The second is that I am shooting for a strong immune system as everyone around me is sick with some kind of sinus/cough/everything else. haha.  The last is that my Breville Juicer broke and I can only juice soft produce with my manual one. I did use a bullet to blend in the avocado though.

Creamy Citrus Immunity

  • 3-4 Clementines
  • 2 Large Oranges
  • 1 Med Apple
  • 2-3 handfuls of Kale

Juice these ingredients and add to your blender/bullet with 1/2 avocado.  Place in the orange or apple first and then build the kale on top of it for high speed juicers.

The clementines have 120% vitamin C in just 2.  The Oranges have less vitamin C, but are still beneficial.  The Kale is also great for immunity and the avocado is a super food!

I love this easy mix and if I had my real juicer working, I would be cranking these out more often.  I hope you enjoy and have a Merry Christmas!!!

Leaving the days of a handful of pills behind :)


It was not too long ago that I was popping crohns/ibs medication like it was candy all day long. 

This was my schedule:

  • Roll out of bed – 2 IBS pills immediately and 3 entocort steroids.
  • 1 anti-depressant before breakfast
  • 2 pentasa at breakfast, a probiotic and multi-vitamin
  • 2 pentasa at mid morning
  • 2 pentasa at the end of the work day
  • 2 pentasa before bed
  • 2 different ibs pills right before bed

After changing my diet, cleansing my system and adding juicing, I now only take the Probiotic and Multi-vitamin.  This is almost unbelievable to me as I always feel the fear these days that I have forgotten to take something.  I weaned down off of my medication very slowly as I did this.  I believed in the fact that the properties of the vegetables, herbs and fruits would heal my system naturally.  I am now free of all of the pills above for over 3 months now.  I am so excited about this!!!  This is the purpose of my blog.  **I would never say to go off of your medication.  You should always consult your doctor before doing that**! The amount that I would pay for all of this medication per month was clear over $100.00 + specialist visits of $70.00 every other month.  I am so grateful that I have found this way and I hope you take the time to read into this method for allowing your body to do what it does best, HEAL ITSELF!!!!! Send me a message with any questions you have.  I am more than happy to help you out!!
