Living in the Sunshine State we are always unprepared for the cold temperatures, well...we think it's cold. Here's a few tips to survive this chilly season!
1. Load up on your Vitamin C
This Immunity boosting fruit is a tasty way to improve your immune system during this seasonal change! You could take supplements but why not go al-natural and grab some fresh Orange Juice weekly. Visit M.G. OJ at the Markets every week for your weekly dose of these delicious vitamins or you can purchase your fruit fresh from our Fruit and Vegetable stalls.
2. Warm up with a cup of Tea
When It comes to fighting colds and keeping your symptoms at bay, tea has proven to provide natural chemical sources which are highly beneficial if not essential to health.
