Jinx jinx knock on wood, I hate making such sweeping statements but it’s true – I honestly can’t think of the last time I had a cold, let alone anything above that.
I never use hand sanitizer. I don’t wash lemons or limes before using them. I don’t double wash spinach.
I don’t buy organic foods. I’m a subway straphanger user.
What I do:
- Eat tons of garlic.
- Eat lots of dark greens
- Eat lots of citrus all winter
- Drink lemon and ginger infused water – and lots of it.
As a matter of fact, my energy level seems tied directly to how much water I have a day. I’ve used the Thermos Intak water bottles for years and love them. Easy to carry. Locking lid. Etc etc etc. 5 star EOS rating.
I try and drink at least three-four bottles of water a day – each with 20-ounce capacity and when I don’t, my bones creak a bit and I get grumpy even. Yes, I can get grumpy.
I squeeze a wedge of lemon into the water and grate fresh ginger into it and shake. The ginger falls to the bottom a bit but a quick shake before another sip, and it’s fine. PS: When I bring home fresh ginger, I peel it and cut it into pieces and freeze the pieces. It shaves easily when frozen. Not so easily when fresh.
I bought a bag of red grapefruit today and new oranges (the store didn’t have any clementines) but a new brand looked interesting.
Not sure what a power orange is and if it’s some GMO food, but it looks like a pink grapefruit on the inside but has pips like an orange. The one I had this afternoon was a little dry so perhaps the advertising is better than the actual product.
I also LOVE winter and seem to come more alive when it’s cold outside. So I was in my element today since it was downright nippy.
I bought four PB tickets today – two at the supermarket and two at my favorite gas station. Good luck everyone. Being prepared for a win, I’ve put on speed dial a good friend who is about the best trust and estate attorney in NYC, just in case. 🙂 🙂 🙂
