Tired and achy?  Adding 1/2 a cup of flaxseed to your diet provides you more than the recommended daily allowance of magnesium.  That makes the seed a powerful pain preventer since magnesium eases the stress-induced nerve-cell activity that leads to neck pain and tension headaches.  Be pain free while enjoying this delicious smoothie.

In blender, puree 1 cup strawberries, hulled and halved; 1 cup fat-free milk; 1 container (6 oz.) low-fat strawberry yogurt; 2 tablespoons flaxseed; 1 tablespoon honey and 3 ice cubes 1 minute, or until smooth.  Divide yogurt mixture between 2 chilled glasses.  Garnish smoothies with fresh mint sprigs and whole flaxseed, if desired.

A serving of yogurt containing live bacteria cultures enjoyed daily can cut your risk of developing a viral infection by 50%.  This is because the digestive tract produces about 70% of the body’s immunes cells, making it an essential line of defense against viruses.  The immune system becomes more resilient when you restock the digestive tract with friendly probiotic bacteria.  So add yogurt into your daily diet, a cup a day goes a long, long way, especially now that AH1N1 is spreading really fast.
