fighting a cold!

sorry for my lack of posts lately. i started feeling under the weather on tuesday to full blown sick on wednesday & today. ech. started with a sore throat and now it’s in my sinuses. hoping to kick it before the weekend. my sick regimen is as follows:

  • fresh carrot / orange juice (8 carrots / 2 oranges through the juicer)
  • chick-un noodle soup (water, better than bouillon no chicken, ramen noodles, chopped carrots & nutritional yeast) normally there is bok choy & celery in my get well soon soup… but i used what i had in the house, as i was in no condition to be out in public!
  • lots and lots of water
  • sovereign silver (bio-active silver hydrosol spray) immune system booster!
  • hot tea with agave nectar (a few times daily)

hopefully all of my remedies combined will fight this cold without me having to go to a clinic and being on antibiotics – blech!

last night i made vegan tacos for my mom. i’m trying to cook really simple things, because she eats fairly simple meals normally… so tacos are perfect.  i used the blue corn taco shells which i toasted in the oven with cheddar daiya shreds (so they get all melty). for taco fillings i made a guacamole (avocado, lime juice, cilantro, garlic), newmans own pineapple salsa, spinach leaves, and refried black beans with some regular salsa mixed in. can you say YUM? it was really good. i was not feeling well and didn’t get any photos. boo!

tonight i made black eyed pea & tempeh bean balls, quinoa spaghetti, marinara sauce, garlic toast & salad for our dinner. it came out okay. i wish i had some daiya mozzarella to smother everything in. the bean ball recipe came from appetite for reduction cookbook. the marinara was super easy and delicious. i used a 32 oz can of roasted crushed tomatoes, 3 cloves of garlic, one onion chopped, dried basil & thyme, 1/4 of water, salt & pepper. overall a decent dinner. i miss having all of my kitchen appliances. can not wait to have my own kitchen again!

hoping to get over to the local farmers market this weekend. buy some quality fruits & veggies. i bought 6 oranges & a small bag of carrots yesterday and they are GONE already. (carrot / orange juice: one last night, one this morning and one this afternoon!) so it’s definitely time to stock up.
