I woke up yesterday with a little bit of a sore throat, but didn’t really think much of it. As the day wore on, I felt horrendous. I took my oldest to a dr appointment and was relieved that he only had a cold and looked like I was picking it up…yay. I spent the rest of the day trying to relax- as much as I could with 3 kids- and drinking as much hot tea as I could handle.
This morning I woke up feeling much better than yesterday, I’m not 100%, but I’m able to function and exercise, which means YAY for yoga tonight!
When I’m sick I tend to crave simple foods and foods that are easily assembled…kind of reminds me of days with a newborn!
Breakfast was a Larabar, banana and hot ginger tea. A couple hours later, I decided that I needed vegetables and vitamin C so I made a smoothie with spinach and oranges. Perfect.
About halfway through I realized I forgot to add ice…apparently my head is still a little foggy today.
Lunch was the ultimate in comfort/sick food: soup! I’ve had this can of minestrone (one of my all time favorites) soup from Trader Joe’s and today was the perfect day to use it.
Full of noodles and vegetables = so good! And then had a cup of watermelon on the side.
And now, it’s time to grab a blanket and snuggle on the couch with more hot tea while my youngest is taking a nap.
What are your cold busting remedies?
