Feeling Under The Weather?

Good Morning and happy Tuesday, we are half way through the week here in the UAE! I spent the whole of last week working on the new lay out for my blog, as you can probably imagine starting into a screen all day and night wasn’t great. I got so wrapped up in trying to complete everything I fell out of my routine a bit of prepping my meals and hitting the gym, and ended up feeling a bit run down and tired.

Anyway, at the weekend I peeled myself away from my laptop and visited a local fruit and veg market here in Abu Dhabi. All the products they sell are organic and de-e-elicious. I found a number of great products too which I will share with you soon, so we ended up leaving with a massive box packed with fruit and veg (and had an amazing veggie roast dinner that night).

As usual the weekend was over far too quickly, and when Sunday morning came around I had a headache and still felt a bit lethargic. I decided to use some of my fresh, organic fruits to create my easy Vitamin C smoothie to boost my immune system and perk me up a bit.

  1. 1/2 cup of almond milk
  2. 1 kiwi
  3. 1 large orange
  4. 1/2 cup raspberries (frozen or fresh)
So easy! Not only was it tasty, this easy Vitamin C Smoothie provides you with the full 100% of your daily recommended allowance all in one drink. Oranges, kiwis and raspberries are full of this super vitamin which helps with the following;
• Managing stress levels
• Fighting colds
• Prevents skin aging
• Lowering your chances of having a stroke, heart diseases and arthritis

Along with the above Vitamin C is an all-round immune booster, which helps with general maintenance and healing of your body. I’ve taken this smoothie to work with me each morning for the past few days, and I feel SO much better. I know in colder parts of the world, this is the time of year when colds and flues start spreading round, so I would highly recommend this super smoothie to all my friends in the UK, especially Scotland 😉

So if you are feeling a bit run down why not try this Vitamin C Smoothie? As they say, ‘Let thy food be thy medicine, and they medicine by thy food’ !
