I make no claims about being any sort of culinary expert -- I just really like food. I've been a try-this-at-home cook for the past few years. I shop on a limited budget, but have expensive taste, so I enjoy the challenge of finding a middle ground.
I’ve been under the weather for the past couple days. I try to consume as many fluids as possible in order to to stay hydrated, and I’ve got a few standard go-to comforts when I’ve come down with a cold -- brothy soups, Emergen-C and lots of hot tea (caffeine-free peppermint’s my favorite). Smoothies like this one are also pretty great, and I’m drinking this particular blend in hopes that it does keep the doctor away and that I’m back to good in no time.
