Life, Love & Photography :: Immunity Boost :: Shoot Prep

September 3, 2019

Beam me up Scotty! We just got back from a beautiful trip to Jamaica landed in Florida, prepped our home for possible Hurricane Dorian and now I’m in NYC. With so much travel I do my best to keep my immune system as happy as possible. Below are a few ways I make this happen. This is also a great way to prepare for a shoot. You can use this method 30 days ahead (once a day) or even a week before your shoot.

For me it’s all about taking care of my gut, when your stomach is happy you’re happy! Also supporting myself spiritually, emotionally and physically. I hope these quick tips are useful for you too.


Happy Tummy Green Goddess Juice: This is my fav green juice recipe. Better to buy organic.

3 Green Apples

1 lemon

3-4 stalks of celery

1 cucumber

1-2 inch/es fresh ginger

1 bunch cilantro


Fera Moringa: I use the capsules when I’m traveling and powder for shakes at home.Click Here


AM Shake Me Up: (makes 2 shakes)

1 ½ Banana (frozen if possible)

1 -2 Kale leaves (I omit the center spine) or baby spinach (handful)

3-4 Dates

½ cup frozen berries

½ cup – 1 cup of water (as needed)

5 – 8 Almonds

1 tablespoon rehydrated chia seeds

1 tablespoon ground flax seeds

2 tablespoons hemp hearts

1 teaspoon Fera Moringa (link above)

1/8 teaspoon clove

1/8 teaspoon cardamom

1/8 teaspoon coriander

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

¼ Teaspoon black pepper

Handful of ice (I love frozen smoothies)

1 Tablespoon cacao powder (optional)


20 minute AM Meditation : Find a quiet spot, set your timer, sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes, breathe in and out of your nose and chant in your head a simple mantra: I like “Sat Nam”. In the ancient Sikh language, Sat means truth. Nam means name. Together, Sat Nam translates into something deeper: “I am truth,” or “Truth is my essence.”

Guided Meditation: I’m a fan of the mediations they offer at the Chopra Center: (Click Here)

Water! So very important to stay hydrated. I typically start my day with a glass of lemon water 30 minutes before eating or drinking anything.  Followed by 3 cups of room temperature water. Then more water throughout the day.


Tea: Roasted Dandelion Tea helps support happy digestion, when your stomach is happy you are happy!  Click Here
