With cold weather on the horizon, there's no time like the present to prepare yourself for what lies ahead: cold and flu season. You can line up for the flu shot and stock up your medicine cabinet, but we think one of the most important steps you can take is within your kitchen.
Eating healthy can help boost your immune system, keeping you strong when everyone around you is suffering. But if you need to up your defenses a little, consider a homemade immunity shot.
Immunity shots are basically small but potent doses of fresh juices loaded with healthy herbs and spices like ginger and garlic. There are a lot of variations of this shot but our favorite is from food blogger With Food And Love. Her recipe includes carrots, lemons, garlic and ginger. We're not going to lie, this shot is bold and it is strong. But it's just a shot and it might make you feel better, so throw your head back and put one down.
Check out her recipe, it might be the best thing you do this fall.
