I swear when I log into Facebook, half of my friends’ status complain about the cold, are miserable or are suffering from blocked noses and sore thoughts.
Whenever I’m sick or in the dumps, I always try and focus on my water consumption and food choices (just ask Niki what my ‘sickness’ motto is. It’s bit inappropriate for here). Unlike some people, I rarely lose my appetite and if anything, it’s elevated and the cravings are bland or rich- Like butter. While I honour these cravings, I try and pack in as much fruits, vegetables and whole grains to see if they will encourage quicker healing.
At the same time, I’m human and I know food and nutrition can’t always cut it, especially with a busy work schedule or a ‘to do’ list the size of the Eiffel Tower, minus the epic French part of it. In those times, I may or may not indulge in a supplement or two, like a sports drink. The worst is easily a sore throat (Seriously, everyone is complaining about those!) and when it comes to eradicating it, I try guzzling water like crazy, adding lemon juice to everything and sleep. SLEEP! Supplement wise and how to cure a sore throat, I often resort to Strepsils, which often are the final push to recovery. Unlike other supplements which are glorified candy, Strepsils are actually medicated and give me the necessary push to wellness!
Hence….today’s delicious round up. Supplements and good food = swift healing. These recipes will aid a fast track to recovery.
Also, Australian friends who complain on Facebook…Go ask Niki what my motto is and embrace it.
