Prepare your immune system for a wonderful Autumn & Winter with Immune Boost! The leaves are changing here on the East Coast as the Earth enters the Fall leg of its journey 'round the sun. The air is crisp and clear, and the trees are ablaze with reds, oranges, yellows... Nature's warm, earthy tones embrace us, and we find excitement in the duality between chilliness and coziness. While the holiday season brings joy, it can also bring the winter blues as we see less sun, deal with holiday stress, and are tempted with less-than-healthy diets. Especially now, it's of ultimate importance to prepare our immune system to combat the flus and colds that seem to dominate this season's health status quo. These are my motivations for creating this bar - and I am almost shocked at how amazing the flavor profile of this bar is... It is my new favorite flavor!
