Day Four!

So, it's day four of my "Super Immune Boosting Week," in which I've been working on staying healthy at all costs. So far, so good. Today, I even felt good enough to do a two-hour workout this morning at the gym...AND felt energized all day afterwards. Yeah, baby!

So, what was on the menu today?

* This morning, I had some "Green Radiance" green drink and an Olade pomegranate beverage while working out.

* After my workout, it was 10:30. I called it "lunch." Who was there to stop me? No one. So, I made up a giant stir-fry mix that included some of my all-time favorite immune boosters. It contained tempeh, a huge bunch of lacinato kale, a locally grown yellow summer squash, and garlic. I took some of the stir-fry and wrapped it in a sprouted grain tortilla, along with some pickles, organic ketchup and mustard, and sliced onions. It sounds odd, I know, but it was quite the delish.

* Later, I made up a batch of poporn, using some coconut oil (which is great for boosting the metabolism as well as immune function). I sprinkled it with nutritional yeast, fresh garlic (lots!), hot sauce (I like "Melinda's XXXX"), and some dulse (a dried sea vegetable, which offers loads of minerals). I drank a large lemon-limeade (stevia-sweetened) along with it, and have actually consumed one lime and four lemons so far today by making this drink. Way to get in the magic of lemons, me!

* For an after school snack for my daughter and I, we had some pan-fried organic polenta and stir-fried sprouted tofu. Oh yum. Ohhhh yum.

* For dinner, I plan to have a gigantic salad (yes, I'm behind on veggies so far, but this will catch me up) and some soup. With extra garlic stirred in right before serving. I can only imagine how I smell to the non-garlic lovin people of the world right now.

So, this concludes today's very dramatic episode. Thanks so much for tuning in and please keep your wonderful ideas and suggestions coming. I appreciate it! X


  1. i’ve been drinking bird nest soup every night (i only get the homemade kind back at home). the only reason why i drink it is because it’s supposed to be good for complexion.

    i’ve been taking the store-bought kind online (e.g. of famous branded only of course) which is directly mailed from Hong Kong. this would be at a more affordable price.

  2. I meant to say this before, but when I felt H1N1 coming on (some kids already had it) I made these juices:

    ginger, lemon, and garlic juice, topped with cayenne and a wedge of orange

    apple, orange, lemon, ginger, and garlic, topped with cayenne pepper and heated

    Made a big diff along w/ homeopathics and homemade soup!
