Out of nowhere Saturday night I started to get a little scratch in my throat and sinus pressure under my eyes. No biggie, just allergies. A couple of hours later my throat felt like it had been scalded with boiling water and it hurt too much to swallow. This was definitely NOT seasonal allergies. But really, I think there's a rule about having to only deal with this "cold" business in the dreary, frigid months of winter...
Anyways, I've been taking zinc supplements and vitamin C like crazy. In addition, I've been whipping up some wicked-tasty smoothies with extra D-Ribose powder and Maca powder.
Seeing as how I haven't had much of an appetite while being sick, my meals have consisted mostly of the addictive Bee M.D. Organic Honey Throat drops. If you head on over to their website you can print off a $1.00 rebate coupon!
Here's a rundown of my smoothie that I made earlier today. Simple. Tasty.
Banana Peach Maca Super-C Smoothie
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 cups frozen peaches (for some additional vitamin C)
- 1 cup fresh orange juice
- 1 tsp. Maca powder (I use Navitas Naturals Raw Maca Powder, Organic)
- 1 packet (~4 grams) of Madre-C powder by Madre Labs
Mix all ingredients in blender and blend!
