Blueberries make a great power shake, can be added to cereal, hot or cold, a salad or enjoyed by themselves.

Carrots: Carrots provide both alpha and beta carotene which is found in orange and green fruits and vegetables. The body coverts beta carotene into vitamin A. Other suggestions are sweet potatoes, pumpkin and spinach. Vitamin A is associated with a healthy immune system.
