yucko cold

October 14, 2007

last week i thought i was just hit with some nasty allergies, every year they seem to get worse for me.  but no, i just have a cold.  this is both good and bad.  good because i can be assured that i might not spent the rest of my life having regular visits with an allergist (tests and shots and drugs).  bad because this is going to be a big week at work and if i can’t get some decent rest i will just get sicker.

i made a super-duper smoothie hoping that it can give me a decent boost, and if i can nap and sit around today maybe i can face the week feeling healthy.  here is what i did:

  • 6oz orange-mango blend juice
  • 6oz cranberry-pomegranate blend juice
  • 4oz low sodium vegetable juice
  • 1/2cup frozen wild blueberries
  • 2tsp “kyo green” drink mix (wheat grass and barley grass, yum)
  • a dose of echinacea drops

blended with a stick blender.   this made 3 1/2 glasses of smoothie with 500% daily value of vitamin c, 120% daily value of vitamin a, tons of antioxidants and a drinkable flavor, considering veggie juice can taste like crap if i am not in the mood for it.

making this reminded me how much i want a juicer . . . but since our kitchen is 10′ by10′, we really don’t have the space for it.  not unless we can find someplace else to keep the mixer and coffee maker, but liz would kill me i if moved her mixer, and we both want the coffee maker.  we already keep the toaster-oven in the oven, i don’t think there is much we can do to “find” more space.  sorry jack lalanne.

off to the couch i go to watch tv and sip tea.

    I wouldn’t kill you if you moved my mixer. You haven’t asked me, now have you? Although I don’t think it would fit in the oven…seriously, where would you put it?
