Recovery Smoothie

I'm getting sick again.  You know that feeling in the back of your throat and nose when it starts?  The feeling that you can ignore for a really long time and somehow that seems to hold it off.  But then, I don't know exactly why it happens, but as soon as you relax, that's when it hits you full on.
Yesterday, instead of coming home and cleaning or working or cooking, I read a book.  Big mistake.  This morning, I woke up with a much more conspicuous sick feeling.  And then I made an even bigger mistake - I acknowledged it.

There's no coming back now.  The time for prevention has come and gone, now I have to attack it head on.  There are about a bajillion different "remedies" for a cold but it seems to me the best solution is lots and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.
If you have something better, please let me know :)

1 banana
handful kale
1/2 c. cantaloupe
5-6 strawberries

1.  Blend it all up.


  1. Looks beautiful and festive! I definitely need this right now... cold and flu season :(

  2. I'm so glad you see it as 'festive' and green and red, instead of brown :) A cold is going around my office right now, so I've been loading up on smoothies too! Stay healthy!! -Sarah
