Green Weeks: Contagious and Disgusting
Today’s blog will be written in two parts. One from today, and one from yesterday. There is a reason behind this. This reason will be evident when you read the part from today.
Green Weeks, Day Four
Written Wednesday: As I was catching up on some necessary (and slightly delayed) blog reads, I clicked on over to HEABs site. Turns out the blogsphere is the one transmitting the germs. Heather is sick too. Feel better soon, Heather! She’s been battling her illness with a remedy found from blogger Tiffany. This remedy calls for a blended mixture of (LOTS of) lemon juice, (LOTS of) garlic, honey, onion, ginger, and cayenne pepper, with water. Sounds delicious and all but I think I may stick to juicing all of those things instead of blending them… I’m not sure how fantastic that tastes… but whatever helps, right? Hmmm, may just keep pesky coworkers (and vampires) away.
Sadly, my cold is taking away the delight of foods. I can’t taste a thing. That’s probably not so great since I’m the one making the green smoothies in the morning for myself and my boyfriend…. this morning’s taste fine to me…
The Very Green Shake
- 3 cups spinach
- 1 cup fresh parsley
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 heaping spoonfuls of ProGreens powder
- 2 cups fresh coconut water (stay hydrated!)
- cinnamon, cinnamon, and more cinnamon
- Black beans may or may not have been present
It was good… or so I’m assuming. Don’t know how the boyfriend liked it, but I’m sure he drank it anyway.
Written Today: As my cold is still present, I decided to take care of it once and for all. I got home from work yesterday (after I wrote the above post) and pulled out a variety of veggies to juice, as I do every day. I opened my handy dandy Juicing Bible book and went to the Immunity Boosting Juicies section. One of them said to be very potent and great for strengthening the immune system. Well, that’s exactly what I need! So I gathered and washed the necessary ingredients and began my journey into the unknown juice realm.
Side note: Anyone watch the new House episode on Monday night??? It was about a blogger. She was obsessed with blogging. My boyfriend had to laugh. Obsessed? Me? Far from it. But blogging is just so much fun!
Stay healthy my friends!
