If you’re staying safe at home but you still want to eat healthy, here’s an easy recipe from Weelicious founder Catherine McCord. She joined me live on the NBC LA Facebook to make her popular immune boosting smoothie and share what foods can help boost your immune system.
McCord is a mom of three and has built her business around creating simple, healthy recipes for the whole family. She’s written a book called The Smoothie Project which has over 100 smoothie recipes and information on ways to boost your nutrition.
“Weelicious is about recipes that kids and adults want to eat,” McCord explains. “These recipes are for people from birth to AARP.”
I asked her to share something easy you can incorporate into your daily life while practicing social distancing and she made the Immune Boosting Very Berry Smoothie.
“I really want people to know all the immune boosting foods that can help you. We want to build up our immune systems and make sure we’re eating real foods that can help you.”
