Immune Booster Smoothies

As I sit here trying to fight off this looming cold, it got me thinking that during cold and flu season we need to do MORE of what we do (during other times of the year) like exercise, get plenty of rest and eat more colorful fruits and veggies to stay healthy. Another way to ward off colds and flus is by boosting your immune system during cold/flu season.  Keep in mind, if you do get sick that the stronger your body is, the faster you get back on your feet. Consume a diet rich in fruits and vegetables that contain immune-boosting antioxidants. Check out these two yummy immune booster smoothies:
