In the last post we talked about how Vitamin C is very helpful to our bodies when we fight infections. As we mentioned, citrus fruits like lemons and oranges aren't the only foods with Vitamin C in them. So we are going to share a few recipes for some delicious Vitamin C packed smoothies that will give you the boost you need to get well and stay well.
