Vitamin C

Well, I went home sick and basically didn’t eat for an entire day. I just slept. This is an interesting feeling might I add. After being in retail for over 10 years I wasn’t used to someone saying ‘Oh wow, you’re sick? Why don’t you go home?!’ The concept of leaving work, calling out sick from work, or taking a vacation from work wasn’t a real thing until my new position.

Bye bye retail, hello corporate sick days because I was really sick!

As for boosting my body back into ‘happy’ I mixed a yummy tropical shake before I rushed out the door this morning.

Oranges are well known for their source of vitamin C. This is one of the best reasons to choose the orange smoothie, to get in your daily allowance of vitamin C. Oranges also have thiamin (B1 – helps your body turn carbs into glucose and helps produce energy), folate (Needed by the body to manufacture red blood cells), and potassium (Helps nerves and cells function).

Pineapples are an excellent source of manganese as well as vitamins C, B1 and B6. Pineapples are also good sources of copper and dietary fiber. Pineapples have anti-inflammatory properties and they help with digestion.

Mangos have tons of benefits! They not only taste good but they have Vitamin C, Vitamin A, B Vitamins, Probiotic fiber, and many others that help reduce cholesterol, maintain Alkali, boot your immune system, and give your skin health benefits.

Many who feel a cold or a case of the sniffles coming on like to increase their vitamin C with Orange Smoothies. This is the perfect time for a smoothie with orange, pineapple, and mango in it, and to get that vitamin C in a tasty way. It’s also kid friendly!
