Healthy Eats: Juices and Smoothies by Kitty Bunag

A few nutritious ingredients, a blender, and a juicer can go a long, long way

Space design extraordinaire Kitty Bunag gives us the backstory to her juicing journey as well as a peek into her healthy kitchen. Read on for her favorite immune system-boosting recipes below.

Juicing and smoothie-making days at home may have started because of an unfortunate health crisis in the family just weeks before the pandemic. When you find out a loved one has cancer, it inevitably and most willingly becomes your fight too. It’s far from easy - it's challenging at first but now life-saving.

How do you overcome days that are dreary? Make it pretty!

A friend recently told me that self-preservation is our responsibility throughout this battle, uplifting those around us in the process, too. Once you feel nourished, you can give so much more vitality and life to those around you.

Kitty's smoothie bowl is topped with fresh fruits, chia, and flax seeds and is not only nutritious but yummy as well

Here are my favorite immuno-boosting recipes! These can, of course, be tweaked depending on what's available in your local markets.

This is not your typical juice. These were prepared using both juicing & blending machines combined so you get the most nutrients out of each ingredient. There is absolutely no sugar added. No additives. No preservatives. 100% natural & fresh. All ingredients are ozonated.

I research the benefits of each ingredient I source. Knowing what each drink can do encourages the family to jump on the healthy smoothie bandwagon as well.

Packed with nutrients that will help boost your immune system, these juices and smoothies can be whipped up from your very own kitchen

Kitty started her juicing chronicles because of a sick loved one, and now everyone around her including herself is benefitting from her new habits
