Cold and flu season is upon us and it’s already hitting full force. A couple weeks ago a terrible stomach bug spread like wild fire through Liam’s day home, plaguing anyone who stepped foot in the door. I am feel very lucky that I somehow managed to avoid it. I’m sure that there are more nasty bugs to come but I’m crossing my fingers that I can avoid them all until the new year now.
The holiday season is far too busy to get knocked out but a bad cold or flu. I have so many fun activities I want to do with Liam before going home for Christmas. And of course there’s the NYE parties as well. I’ve been trying to stay on top of things with a healthy-ish diet, regular exercise, vitamins and cold-pressed juices from Glow Juicery.
I’m a firm believer in using food as medicine. I’m always adding extra honey, lemon and garlic into our days when colds are looming while brewing a fresh batch of broth for soup. Pressed juice is no different because the process allows vitamins, trace minerals, enzymes and other elements to be preserved in the process. And sure, I have a juicer and could save the $8 to make my own, but they just never turn out as delicious as Glow juices.
Treat yo’ self!
Glow Juicery Red Deer just recently opened up in Red Deer (in the strip mall south of Bower Mall if you were wondering) and on my last visit in to their cute little cafe, I left with their Holiday Survival Pack of four juices. By the way, they have a selection of raw food salads, soups, acai bowls, and other snacks that are definitely a must try. The coconut bacon is life changing. But I digress. I’m fairly certain picking up this Holiday Survival Pack the day Liam started throwing up helped me fend off the bug.
If you’re local and hoping to make it through the holiday season free of sickness, I definitely recommend stocking up on some juices. You can grab your own Holiday Survival Pack for $30 plus save on gift cards for your juice crazed friend or family member.
