Spring is a great time of year to give the immune system a boost from the cold winter months. Try the following to strengthen up the body's defense:
 

                                                                  Vitamin C: 2,000 - 4,000 mg in divided doses. A powerful antioxidant and immune system booster

Vitamin D: 3,000-5,000 IU daily from late fall until late spring. Essential for immune health and the absorption of calcium

Probiotics: 80% of the bodys immune system is in your gut! A minimum of 20 billion CFU's daily depending on overall health status. Also try incorporating fermented foods on a daily basis such as kefir, sauerkraut and plain, full fat yogurt.

Chaga mushrooms: a medicinal, adaptogenic mushroom to help boost and modulate the bodies immune system. Drink one cup of chaga tea daily.
 

 

 

 

 

 

Client Story!

 

I was looking to get in shape and taking better care of myself. I heard about Come Alive Fitness from a friend and contacted the owner Annika. I told her what my goals were and I was introduced to Barb, one of their personal trainers.

 

It was an instant connection of friendship. Barb took my goals and crafted a routine that was realistic and enjoyable.

 

I have been training with Barb for over six months now and look forward to each weekly session. She is willing to take it up a notch when I am wanting a challenge and is always positive and encouraging.  Overall, my experience at Come Alive Fitness has, and continues to be, a pleasure and an adventure!

 

Sincerely, Teresa

 

 

 

 

Delicious Gluten Free Chicken Chowder!

 

Ingredients:
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp cayenne
1 lb boneless chicken thighs (I used boneless and skinless)
1 quart chicken or veggie broth
2 medium sweet potatoes, 1 inch cubed
1 head of broccoli cut into 1 inch pieces (save stems)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno, finely diced (optional)
1 14.5 oz can coconut milk
1 tbsp fresh cilantro, minced (or 1/2 tbsp dry cilantro)
1 lime juiced
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped

 

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350.  Mix salt, cumin, paprika, and cayenne in a bowl.  Season chicken with spice mixture.  Place chicken in pan and bake for 20-30 minutes. Remove chicken and cut into 1 inch cubes. While chicken is cooking, add broth to a medium sized pot.  Bring to a boil and add sweet potatoes.  Cook until fork tender (about 10 minutes).  Remove sweet potatoes from broth and set aside.

 

Add broccoli stems, garlic, and jalapeno (if you want) to the broth.  Reduce heat to medium high and boil for 15 minutes.  Add broccoli florets and coconut milk.  Continue to boil until the broccoli is tender, about 5 minutes.  Remove pot from the heat. Transfer broth and veggies to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.  Place the blended mixture back into pot and add cooked chicken, sweet potatoes, and cilantro.  Return to medium heat, stir well, and cook for 2-3 minutes to reheat. Garnish with lime juice and chopped red onion.
