Metro Mama & Metro Baby

By Kim Taylor

Good health is invaluable, so here are two ways to boost your family’s immunity and vitamin intake this holiday (and flu) season:

The Jack LaLanne Power Juicer is a thing of beauty. Expertly designed to be convenient, sturdy and easy to use and clean, this baby will grind up just about anything and churn it into a refreshing, vitamin-laden juice for you. You can add the pulp to the juice for added health benefits, or use the separated pulp in pancakes or muffins. Juice carrots, tomatoes, grapefruit, apples, cucumbers, and an array of your other favorite fruits and vegetables any time you feel the need for a snack, and children will love tossing items in to be ground up. Once you use the Jack LaLanne Power Juicer, store-bought juice will seem weak and flavorless by comparison. Parents will appreciate juicing ginger when making chicken soup. Find this fantastic kitchen staple at http://www.powerjuicer.com.

If you don’t get enough fruits and vegetables throughout the day, and many of us don’t, then you can supplement your daily intake with organic, farm-friendly Nutrilite vitamins and minerals. The folks at Nutrilite recommend that you focus on ingesting a full spectrum of colors: red tomatoes, yellow squash, orange peppers, green watercress, purple eggplant, white garlic, etc. Visit the Nutrilite site to enjoy some of their health-related quizzes, such as your color spectrum for the day or your “health” age. Choose from a wealth of healthy offerings at http://www.nutrilitehealth.com or http://www.nutrilite.com.

Take care of yourself and your family, so your time together this fall and winter won’t include sharing soup and tissue boxes.
