Remember I told you I had that head cold? Well, it went away quickly and then my daughters got it. So when I had them for the weekend, I had to baby them a little. They gave it right back to me and by Tuesday I felt a chest cold/flue coming on. I'm convinced that when your immunity is cranking, these type of bugs sort them selves out very quickly. I felt my body responding to the onslaught with a severe cough, less of an appetite and thirst. Today I'm feeling great and the cough is almost gone. 2 and half days! I remember years ago if something like this came my way, I would be in bed for 5 days. One last thing, you know how when you feel a sore throat coming on or some other cold/flu like symptom? What's your immediate reaction? Usually it's like this "GGRRRR#@#@@#@#@&^^&&^& I can't believe I'm getting sick!!!!!!!!!!" I stayed very conscious of that negative thought coming in, and tried to positively redirect it. Thinking more along the lines of, "wow, how cool that my body is responding perfectly to this little virus"
It might be just placebo.........but then again.......body and mind are one right?
ANYWHO......sorry....back to food!
Last night made my version of chicken cacciatore. Chicken sauted in butter with loads of spicy peppers, one tomato and simmered in white wine. Of course I had some left overs. ;-)
This morning breakfast;
Red cabbage, onion, garlic, one small habanero and left over chicken cacciatore mixed in.
