Eggs and Colds


E


ggs. They are what's for breakfast.



I have been craving eggs like crazy lately - weird hey!? This morning I had 2 scrambled eggs and 1 slice of toast with PB and J.

We were out of coffee this morning (*gasp*) so I stopped for one on the way to work. It was already HOT out this morning so I got an icecap from Tim Horton's. It was great!

Lunch was a Cuban sandwich and an orange:



Dinner was salmon, crab and shrimp wrapped in phyllo pastry (made fresh at Sobey's!) along with corn on the cob and a small serving of potatoes.





I could only finish half of the salmon. It was very filling.

This evening I had a small latte, and a glass of fresh juice (1 green pepper, 1 grapefruit, 1 apple, 1/4 cantaloupe):



I feel a bit of a cold coming on, so I popped some of these:



These pills have kept me from getting a cold all winter. Anytime I get that pre-cold feeling, I start taking these (they dissolve on your tongue) and no symptoms develop. The brand is Homeocan, and I buy them at my local health food store.

Do you do anything unconventional to ward off colds/ flus? Are you paranoid about germs? Do you sanitize a lot?

I sanitize occasionally, and wash my hands regularly, but I am not crazy about it.

That cuban looks so good! I take Clairitn when I feel/get a cold. Works everytime. I don't obsess over germs or sanitize.

I don't really do anything for colds/flus except drink lemon water, or warm ginger/water. Usually only if I feel a sore throat coming on though.

I'm certainly not paranoid about germs. I do have hand sanitizer in the car, and at my desk at work though. There are moments when they come in handy.

I love eggs. I eat them every morning.

I just take my vitamin everyday and when I feel a cold coming on, I drink a TON of water. It's been working well this year.

Huh, I've never seen those pills. May need to keep an eye out for them. The only thing I do is take extra C. Not sure that it really helps...but it probably doesn't hurt. Oddly, I'm not super paranoid about germs. I try not to think about it too much or I might go off the deep end.

I just take my vitamin C and hope for the best!

Iced capp with chocolate milk instead of cream is the BEST.

I am not crazy about germs at all. I very rarely get sick, but when I do, it is really bad. So I just try and nurish my body and hope it is enough!

kalin said...

i make sure to sleep extra! that's always the best medicine for me

kacy said...

I love iced coffee when it's super hot out!

I am like you, I keep my hands clean but I'm not obsessive.

Morgan said...

I'm not really worried about germs or catching colds. I just wash my hands often and drink extra vitamin C if I feel like something is coming on. I hope you don't get sick!!
