Fighting the Crud

I am really feeling like crap today.  Another round of sinus stuff I guess.  I just don't understand.  We eat healthy, exercise regularly, and are avid hand washers.  Why are we sick ALL. THE. TIME.

Whenever I get sick this is what I do.

I load up on whole citrus.  drink a lot of that throat coat tea. That tea is better than any cough drop!  I drink a green smoothie every morning and I drink coffee to soothe my soul.

Breakfast:  

This morning I had that green smoothie pictured above and started drinking lemon water.

I drank it all day long.

Gym:  An hour of combat.  I felt good at the gym but came home feeling like crud again.

Lunch:

I tried making paleo crepes, one sweet one savory.  It pretty much turned out how I feel.  Like CRUD.  

Dinner:

A baked chicken quarter wrapped in bacon and butternut squash soup with a little coconut milk.  The butternut squash soup was just squash, chicken stock, salt, sage, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  That's how I like it.  Simple and squashy.

What is your cure all?  Please do tell so I can do it too!

On top of the whole citrus (I'll eat multiple oranges a day!) and lemon water, a couple of weeks ago when I was feeling like crud, I roasted a bulb of garlic. I would eat a few cloves with lunch and dinner. I can't tell you for sure if it helped, but it sure tasted good! :) Hope you're feeling better soon!

I got the lemon water from you Michelle! I'll have to try the garlic.

Tiffany Campiotti said...

Garlic! If you can do it: mince it, pour hot water on it (just 2oz or so), let it sit and then down it. Nasty, but it does the trick. Also saline nose spray. Another helpful tip is to mix lemon & honey in a cup of hot water and add a dash cayenne.

Kristen @ Change of Pace said...

Oh no... Garlic tea?!

I stay away from fruit (sugar) and do massive amounts of Vitamin C instead (like 10,000 mg a day - but if you're not used to taking Vitamin C, it's something you probably have to work your way up to). Also, the closest thing to a cure all for me is homemade stock/broth - beef or chicken, whatever I have on hand. Other than that, I try to get tons of sleep and stay away from all sugar and alcohol.

Hope you feel better soon!

Looks good :) how was the chicken? And what's your soup recipe?

Kristen @ Change of Pace said...

I need to make a recipe for it. I always just eyeball everything. I'm terrible at making recipes! Tonight I just did a medium butternut squash roasted and then scooped out. I put it in a blender and added a few cups of chicken stock, salt, sautéed onion and garlic, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sage. It's worth a recipe. I make it all the time and it freezes wonderfully!

Kristen @ Change of Pace said...

I love chicken that way. Seasoned with salt and pepper with bacon on it. 400 degrees uncovered for about an hour.

@Kristen @ Change of Pace
I know, the garlic "tea" "shot", whatever you want to call it, is gross. It does the trick every time though. I'm the only one in my house who can do it though cause it's intense lol

Feel better ASAP!! Hydrate and get plenty of rest :).

Danielle @ Clean Food Creative Fitness said...

Feel better! I don't have tips other than rest but take it easy and I know you'll feel better soon :)

Amid the most successful applications of anaerobic treatment for the oxidation of toxic pollutants is the case of the treatment of effluent in the plastic industry containing high concentrations of terephthalate.
Septic system owners who have utilized Pro - Biotic Scrubber
in their septic tank and leach fields or drain fields have
found that the sludge and material that traditionally can back-up a system and cause it to fail
is actually eliminated, making the system run more efficiently and prevent
long-term failures and maintenance costs. Industrial wastewater treatment, however, is also
a very significant contributor to the fight against polluted water and to maintaining integrity and purity in the water we need to live.
