note(s) to self.



Back in November I finally jumped on the green smoothie bandwagon, and I really wish I could say they've been keeping me healthy this winter...but alas, I am somehow on day 16 (sixteen!!) of a sinus-infection-turned-head-cold. Apparently green smoothies do not guard against baby germs, because all the times I've gotten sick these past few months can be traced back to the sweet little runny button noses of a niece or nephew (both of whom will remain nameless...;).

Pardon my language, but I'm really hoping I can kick this dumb thing once and for all this weekend. I've got a fridge stocked full of our favorite green smoothie greens, and I don't plan on letting my neti pot out of my sight ever (BFF these days, me & my neti pot). So, note to self: eat your greens, and stay away from sick babies!

  1. hope you feel better soon! at least you're getting as many nutrients as possible, green smoothies are the best for that.

  2. Ugh, so sorry! We're just finishing up our 4th cold of the winter, and we've been drinking green smoothies constantly. Obviously the greens didn't help us either :(

    So excited to see you soon! Hope you feel better soon!

  5. Aww, I hope you feel better soon! Being sick is so exhausting too! my BF actually suggested that I use a neti pot when I was sick, I was a little afraid of the process! Does it really help?

    2. A neti pot will change your life if you are sick or someone that has seasonal allergies!
      They are easy to find at drugstores now!!

  9. I was craving orange juice, sunny d, oranges for a week or so. Then I felt like I was getting a sore throat or maybe it was from the cold dry air. I kept up with the orange juice even after the cravings stopped. I'm not sure what my body was trying to fight, but I feel just fine.
    I hope you get better soon.

  11. ugh being sick is horrible. I got the flu last night & called in sick today. I feel like crap. I also do green smoothies every morning. Love it, but I guess they don't make us invincible after all.

  15. I haven't gotten around to trying a green smoothie, something about the idea of pureed spinach makes me gag. Hope you start feeling better!

  16. Oh gosh, I've always wanted to try those green smoothie diets but I just haven't gotten up the courage to let go of all my favorite grunge foods, or even a smoothie maker. I suppose I should get on that... ;)
    Feel better soon!

  21. It's hard to stay away from sick babies when they are your own. Grrr. Sinus infection for me too last week. I was so stuffed up the neti pot wouldn't even cut thru it! But we're on the mend! Hooray! And hopefully you are too :)

  22. It may not taste the best, but add some ginger, garlic, and onion to your smoothie. That should help kick any illness' butt. (Excuse my language)
