Healing Smoothies

I don’t know about you guys, but the weather in New York has been absolutely CRAZY.

One day it’s cold – like my ears are going to fall off kind of cold – then the next day it’s in the mid-60s. One day it’s beautiful and sunny and the next day it’s rainy and cloudy. On Monday kids will be playing in the park with no jackets on and then on Wednesday it snows.

Bottom line….Mother Nature doesn’t know what she wants to do with New York.


And if you’re anything like me and my family, then the constant switching of the weather is wrecking havoc on your body. I don’t quite know why it is, but when the weather goes from hot-to-cold-to-hot-to-cold, my body doesn’ know what to do with itself.

So here are some healing smoothies to get you through these rough times!
