Simple "Sick Day" Recipes: Coldbuster Smoothie

It is more important than ever to eat nutritiously when you're sick, but no one feels like spending much time in the kitchen when they are. A nighttime cough got the best of me, so yesterday and today I've been laid up in bed resting and replenishing. Throughout the day I'll be featuring a couple of quick, easy, powerhouse vegan recipes that I've been making to get back to 100%:

Simple Coldbuster Smoothie:
Blend:
  • 1/2 container fresh strawberries
  •  1 - 1&1/2 cups frozen pinapple
  • 1/3 inch slice of fresh ginger
Better than Jamba Juice and straight from your own blender! I know it's supposed to be Fruit Week and I already did strawberries, luckily I keep a variety of frozen fruit on hand, and pineapple is a delicious Vitamin C powerhouse for a sick day. If you have fresh pineapple, try reversing the recipe and using frozen strawberries instead. No need for ice!

Stay tuned later today for my favorite sick day soup and some notes on the many health benefits of ginger.
