We’ve seen a ton of news covering all angles of this scary pandemic, but we have not seen much in the news regarding ways to boost our immunity. Food and more specifically the types of foods we eat right now will either help or harm our health.

I reached out to my very good friend and Holistic Nutritionist Julie Daniluk to get her top immune-boosting smoothie. Julie says this delicious and refreshing recipe can be made in a juicer or blender. It is more nutritious in a blender because you retain all the beneficial fibre you would lose with juicing. The veggies in this ultimate juice provide Vitamin A, B, C and K; Calcium, Magnesium and Potassium! This juice is perfect for supporting Lung Health and boosting immunity.
