Sicker than Old Yeller


I have officially been taken down by the fall cold bug. Needless to say, I feel like i’m on the receiving end of the beating of a lifetime.

Besides remedies such as Tim Hortons donuts and several episodes of Boardwalk Empire on the couch, not much has worked to heal my aching throat.

Until, of corse I googled recipes for smoothies high in Vitamin C.  What I found and made was  nothing short of Delish!   It tasted amazing and gave me a little boost to get me through the afternoon.

For those that want it….
1 cup pineapple (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup mango (fresh or frozen)
1 banana
1 cup almond milk

My committment to eating a diet with more raw foods has not only been benefit to my shrinking waistline.  I now can use food to boost my health.  Who would have thought!  (Apparently lots of people… just not me. Haha)

A taste of the tropics from my couch. Now all I need is some sand.  And an ocean for the kids to pee in.

Bottoms up!!
