Packed with immune-boosting, anti-inflammatory gut-friendly ingredients
With gyms being closed and lockdown still in full effect, I've been trying to be more mindful of what I'm consuming in efforts to remain as healthy as possible.
I've recently discovered a couple of immunity-boosting products that are perfect for keeping your health in tip top shape.
Steeps One Shot This 100% plant based drink includes apple cider vinegar, turmeric, ginger, horseradish, chilli, onion and garlic. You're meant to drink a shot of it each day for 12 weeks, however, I found it a bit punchy as a drink and would recommend it drizzled over salad or in a virgin Bloody Mary.
Virgin Mary recipe Ingredients
90ml Organic Tomato Juice
30ml Steeps One Shot
4 dashes of Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 a lemon juice
1 pinch of sea salt
1 pinch of black pepper
And some ice
Place it all into a shaker or stirring glass, give it a good shake or stir then add a celery stick for garnish.
We recently tried two different kefir drinks, renowned for their healthful properties. Kefir is fermented milk, that's packed with billions of live cultures to help boost your immunity. Originating from the Caucasus Mountains, Kefir has been a trusted gut-friendly staple for more than 2,000 years and the word 'kefir' literally means 'feel good', so there's obviously some truth to it!
Biotiful Kefir is a great source of calcim, which contributes to the normal function of digestive enzymes. It also contains Vitamin B12, which supports a fully functioning immune system. Light and creamy, it's great on it's own or you can enjoy it as a smoothie or pour it on overnight oats for a super healthy breakfast treat.
We also love this delicious recipe for Kefir Chia Pudding with raspberry compote.
