Smoothie & Juicing Recipes for Cold and Flu Prevention


I don’t know about you but I HATE being sick. There is SO much sickness going around this year and it seems to be worse than it has been in years past. This has left me doing everything in my power to be on the offense and stay one step ahead of the cold and flu bugs so that me and my family can stay healthy. We have done a fairly good job so far this year with less illness than last year despite the huge flu outbreak and many bugs going around at our school.

Part of our routine is to apply Thieves essential oil to the bottom of our feet everyday. We also take daily multivitamins, probiotics and drink a glass of grape juice with grapefruit seed extract in it. With abundant health insurance marketplace coverage options available, we also get regular checkups too! We add these cold and flu smoothie and juicing recipes for cold and flu prevention to our arsenal and our bodies are ready to attack any bugs that come our way! Grab these 15 cold and flu prevention juicing and smoothie recipes to add to your arsenal.

Doing a detox can also be very beneficial for your health. I have detox juicing recipes collected for you and I love taking a hot bath with epsom salts and essential oils for additional detoxing. Adding lemon to your water can be very beneficial as well.

    Thanks so much for these recipes. I like to make smoothies for breakfast, but I usually just put whatever I have into the blender and whip it up. I can’t wait to try some of these, but I need to make a trip to the grocery store first.
