Garlic Breath

by HEAB on March 8, 2010

Yesterday, after my delicious pizza pancakes I quickly deteriorated into a stuffy feverish teary-eyed lump in my bed. Oh my gosh, I have not felt that awful in years. I didn’t eat much the rest of the day, and after sweet CD was kind enough to brave Trader Joe’s on a Sunday afternoon, I had all the ingredients to make Tiffany’s Immunity Builder Drink. Into the Vita-Mix went 2 quarts of water, juice from 10 lemons, 10 cloves of garlic. 1/4 cup raw honey, 1/2 a peeled onion, 1 tsp ginger, and 1 tsp cayenne pepper. I’ve been drinking 12 ounces every 3 to 4 hours. My breath must be awful…good thing I can’t smell anything. :) I did wake up this morning with no fever. Still weak but hopefully on the mend. Thank you Tiffany!

Me and my first 12 ounces…


No use in asking me how it tastes. I’m sure it’s disgusting, but for all I know, I could be drinking a chocolate milkshake. I can’t taste a thing.

Back in the day when I used to get sick, I exercised no matter what. I can remember one day when I had a horrible sinus infection, but I went for a 6 mile run anyway…in the 90 degree heat. It was awful. I didn’t feel good enough to go into work, but I made myself run anyway. I remember thinking maybe I have a problem with exercise addiction. Well, I definitely got over that (thank you yoga). I didn’t even get out to walk the dogs yesterday and have no plans to do much today either. If your body needs rest…let it rest my friends!

On that note, I’ll leave you with some yummy food I ate before the downward spiral into the depths of snot hell began…


That was a chipotle almond butter filled omelet with a side of bacon. I’m down to the last of my chipotle nuts, and my Sam’s no longer sells them. So sad. :(

Next up, we have a bacon, tahini, and raw honey filled quesadilla. Just a drizzle of honey adds so much sweet, and this was a delicious combo!


And last but not least, one of the best Oats In A Jar experiences I’ve had in a while…


Plain oat bran with homemade coconut milk kefir and cinnamon in the Artisana coconut butter jar. There were at least 3 spoonfuls of coconut butter left in the bottom, and the warm oat bran made it all ooey-gooey melted. Perfect!

OK, off to go blow my nose. Hope everyone has a good Monday!
