Two weeks of non-stop work and very little sleep was bound to catch up with me. And it has. In the form of a brutal cold. My throat is so sore right now, all I can think about is eating popsicles.
Unfortunately for me, we are fresh out of frozen pops :(. Fortunately, we do have the the makings of the next best thing- smoothies.
After triumphing over the part of my brain that was trying to convince me to give up and stay in bed all day, I stumbled into the kitchen to make myself a morning glass of what I hope will be my cold salvation.
I happened to find half of a perfectly sweet cantaloup sitting in our fridge, beckoning me with it’s promise of vitamin C. I blended that bad boy up with some almond milk and ice and it may have been just what the doctor ordered.
1 C almond milk
6 ice cubes
I am off to do nothing all day long in hopes of combatting my cold in time for the first day of school. My action plan involves approximately 5 hours of uninterrupted couch surfing followed by soup-making, and finished off with more couch surfing. I hope you find yourself in better shape than poor pathetic me. Feel free to leave me pity comments below. I always appreciate pity freebies.
