And you’ve probably had your fair share of making them. But let me reassure you that this recipe is unlike any of them. In fact, it might very well taste just like a previous smoothie you’ve made; however, this recipe is packed with a super powerful antioxidant that will help support your child’s immune system. So if your kiddo tends to get sick often or you’re just looking for a natural way to prevent them from getting sick, this ones for you mama. I’ll be sharing what the secret ingredient is with you in a bit but before we get to that, I wanted to share my testimony.

 

Our girls were getting sick constantly more so since our oldest is now in Elementary School and brings home all the school germs with her. It was doctor appointment after doctor appointment and rounds of antibiotics that I realized I needed to put an end to it. So at my wits end, I started to search online for natural alternatives to build up their immune system. I saw the usual probiotics and vitamins which I had previously tried and yes it helped a bit but it did not prevent them from getting sick still.

 

So while at a conference, I came across a booth that had an elderberry crystal. They mentioned how great it was for the immune system. My ears perked up and I immediately asked if they had any for kids. And to my surprise, they did! They gave me a handful of samples to take home and try out. That very same day when I got home from my conference and made smoothies with it. Trust me when I say my girls did not even notice it in their smoothies. It’s been 3 months we’ve been using it and have not gotten sick since. So you bet I’ve stocked up on this powerful antioxidant.

And if you’re kiddos are not really into smoothies, make popsicles out of them or add the crystals to a berry yogurt and even juice. 😉

    Your story is like our story. We should have VIP parking at the doctors office as we have not missed much since November. I’ve tried everything natural because I’m done with antibiotics for my little ones so frequently. Can’t wait to try this. Thank you for sharing!

We tried the California Club with mustard seeds as we love all things avocado plus the Italian Grinder with Subway Herb Garlic Oil, cracked Black Pepper and seasoning. We even got Lexi to try mustard seeds for the first time. Everything was delicious and we can’t wait to go back to try the new melts next! Check out our stories to see behind the scenes. #sponsored @subway #MakeItBoldSanDiego
  • Apparently even FALL decided to go on a last minute vacay. 😆🍁🏖 Don’t blame it one bit. Just wish I could be back at the Disneyland Hotel poolside with this never ending 90 degree weather. 😬🔥 .

  • Ahhh! - We’re finally done with our kitchen renovation! 🎉 Obsessed with how it turned out & can’t wait to share it with you. But before I do, I wanted to also keep it real. .
.
The behind the scenes were cray w/ kids and no kitchen. Making meals, healthy at that, was such a challenge. I made this quick breakfast all the time in my office while there was construction going on. 🤪
.

Only 4 Ingredients Needed: 🎃 @go_raw Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds, Sliced 🍌Banana, 🍓berries & chia seeds
.
.
Pumpkin seeds are a tasty alternative to nuts because they’re a good source of PROTEIN, iron, magnesium, copper and manganese. Did you know sprouted seeds optimize available proteins, enzymes and minerals, making it easier to digest and allowing nutrients to be more easily absorbed by the body? 🙌 Junk-free snacks that taste good.😋

  • #AD | As a mom, I tend to put myself last, more so when it comes to annual exams and that includes vision. The worst part is knowing I have access to VSP Vision Care through my spouse's’ employer yet I continued to put it on the back burner all because I thought my vision was just fine. .
.
But guess what? I decided to finally book my annual eye exam. So glad I did as it turns out I have pretty bad eye allergies and I also need glasses. Here I was thinking everything was fine even though I was experiencing all these symptoms that I had no idea were connected to my vision. Those annual eye exams are a must. Be sure to schedule yours in mama! And if you don’t have vision care, open enrollment season is happening right now. Find out all the info on our latest blog post. #SeeMuchMore #weseeyoumom @VSPVisionCare
  • Mia, our oldest said to me last night, "Mommy when Lexi was in your tummy I prayed a lot of times at night that I'd get a sister. And I got a sister! I love my little sister." And then a few minutes later was arguing with little sister over a toy. 🤪 .

Sibling love is the best kinda love, right? They love each other so much, look after one another yet also fight. But they instantly forgive one another. 👭#KidsTeachParentsToo .
