3 pitfalls that are stopping you from Creating Healthy Habits that lasts

3 Immune Boosting Fall Tonics

The fall is officially here, and we’re bringing you these 3 immune boosting fall tonics, to keep you hydrated and healthy during these cooler months. Generally, I prefer smoothies and I think it’s safe to say most dietitians do as well. They have more fiber, which helps keep you full for longer. However, as much as I love my smoothies, I’m not too crazy about them in the fall and winter months.

I prefer something more soothing and warm, so I tend to lean towards juicing as the seasons change. One big beef that dietitians have with juices is that they’re usually high in sugar, since it takes quite a bit of fruit to make a decent cup of juice. And this can definitely be true if you’re making juices that are fruit based.

The juices we created have a blend of vegetable and fruit, meaning they contain no more than two servings of carbohydrates. They also have seasonal ingredients like carrots, apple, and ginger. Ginger in particular, is great during the cooler months, since it adds a touch of heat to recipes. Ginger can also stimulate powerful health benefits in the body. This powerful spice has been shown to decrease inflammation, swelling, pain, nausea, and vomiting through its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It adds a wonderful flavor that is both sweet and spicy.

First, you’ll want to get a good-quality juicer. We used this Omega compact nutrition system juicer, which is perfect for those of you living in small apartments like me. It’s multipurpose and relatively small in size. Now for the recipes…on the menu we have Spicy Carrot, Sweet Beet, and Citrus Green. Start by washing all of your produce.

For the spicy carrot, cut the carrot and ginger into smaller pieces that will fit through the juicer chute. Discard the apple core and seeds, and then juice all of the ingredients. For the sweet beet, cut the beet and pear into smaller pieces that will fit through the juicer chute. Juice just the beet and pear, and then finish with a squeeze of lime juice. And lastly for the citrus green, chop the kale + stems, and cut the cucumber into pieces that will fit through the juicer chute. Peel the orange, cut as well, and put all of the ingredients through the juicer. Enjoy!
