I bet my readers didn't know that I'm quite the gourmet cook, did ya? Let it be known I don't normally follow receipes for one simple reason, I lose things constantly especially my memory. I mix a little of this, a little of that and BAM, you've got a Dazed Gourmet Special! So why this Public Service Announcement? Simple yet again, I've got a cold and what better time of year then to provide Dazed's Cold Remedy receipes.
Dazed's receipe for a Vitamin fortified shake snack: Fresh fruits and veggies give the richest source of Vitamin C and there are lots of juices that combine fruit and vegetable juice with high levels of it. Some of the highest Vitamin C amounts can be found in sources like Rose hip, Wolfberry, Blackcurrant, Red pepper, Parsley, Guava, Kiwifruit, Broccoli, Redcurrant, Persimmon, Papaya, Strawberry, Orange, Lemon, Melon, Cauliflower, Grapefruit, Raspberry, Tangerine, Passion fruit and Spinach. Mix this all ina blender and trust me, you'll forget you've got a cold. (Cauliflower, broccoli and spinach turned me off)
Dazed's receipe for Chicken Soup: A few cans of store bought chicken soup, of your preferred brand, can be enhanced for the "kill all" remedy. Toss some Garlic in there too. As an immunity booster, garlic has a natural antibiotic called Allicin. Though Garlic is most effective when you drink fresh juice or take garlic capsules. Onions share some of the same antiviral effects as garlic and used together in cooking will give a large boost. Remember that vegetables retain their vitamin and mineral content best when eaten raw or lightly cooked, so don’t fry or boil them to oblivion. Make sure to have allot of crackers handy...helps kill the
garlic/onion after taste.
Dazed's homemade lonzenges: Hell, stick a peeled Garlic clove in your mouth, hold it like candy and bite down lightly to release the juices. Just like a lozenge..talk about a rush. And this remedy helps keep your family and co-workers healthy as well. Who wants to be around garlic breath more then absolutely necessary? And another benefit is no vampires!
Dazed's homemade tea: What to wash this all down with? Simple...Fresh ginger root tea is another favorite. With about an ounce of freshly grated ginger root put into a pint of water and simmer for up to 10 minutes, add a little honey, cayenne pepper and lemon makes for a lovely afternoon treat. Lemon has high levels of Vitamin C to boot and honey also does its part to help the immune system. The cayenne pepper adds a little ZING
to your afternoon tea.
Talk about a full course vitamin meal all-in-one! I sure hope this helps you dear readers. I provide these Public Service Announcements because I want my readers to return daily, while encouraging healthy bodies and spirits.
