How ironic that I wrote a post last week about boosting your immune system and almost as soon as I hit ‘publish’, both Hubs and I came down with stinking colds.
Better start practicing what I preach, eh?!
We are staying indoors, sleeping lots and sipping warm broth by the bucket-full.
Also on our beat-this-thing-as-painlessly-as-possible list, is this turmeric smoothie that Hubs found in the dark recesses of the internet.
Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant. It’s also antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.
Basically it’s what you want when there are evil, mucuousy spirits camped out in your delicate nasal passages.
