Boosting the Immune System


Just got back from our big summer trip: Maine! It was a blast. I ate so much seafood that I don't want to look at any for a really long time. I love traveling, but I am a bit of a germaphobe when it comes to flying and sharing my air with a bunch of strangers. Plus, who wants to get sick on vacation. I am one of those 'better be safe than sorry' and 'hope for the best, plan for the worst' type of people.

When we travel we boost up our immune systems. For the kids, I like Kidz Superfood by Amazing Grass. It is a powder you can mix with water and it comes in berry or chocolate flavor. It is a wholefood source of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that help support a strong immune system. One scoop (or one packet- for travel we use their handy travel packets) with some water has the antioxidant equivalent to 3 servings of fruits and vegtables. It also packs a punch with Wheatgrass and Probiotics. It is an all natural product with no artificial colors or fillers. My girls drink this almost everyday. They call it their "veggie juice". During the winter season and at school, boosting the immune system is especially important. For the trip or anytime I know someone close to us is sick I add a little extra for them with something like, Animal Parade KidZinc Lozenges by Nature's Plus. It has Echinacea, Olive Leaf, Slippery Elm, and Ginger.

It is important not to loose sight of your health when you travel. True I splurged on some desserts and ate some things I wouldn't normally eat, but I didn't take a total vacation from my normal life. I made sure we were all getting our necessary fruits and veggies...even if in powdered form. I have long taken a daily shot (as in shot glass size) of wheatgrass, but on the road it is often hard to find. Amazing Grass makes a powdered form and they also make a superfood mix for adults similar to the one I give the kids (although theirs tastes so much better). I still read labels and found local natural food stores in the area when I did my shopping. We had a great time. Maine's state motto is "The Way Life Should Be" and it's true. It is beautiful and slow paced and I loved it. If only the weather was nice all year!
