I woke up this morning with a tickle in my throat. “Ah Ha!” I immediately exclaimed! I know just what to do. My cure for the common cold is a three pronged attack:
- Only eat things that are green or orange.
- Drink tea constantly
- Cover your neck
The elixir in this post goes along with #1. This sounds weird at first, but it actually tastes really good and is amazing for you.
Elixir of Health
- 16 oz bag of spinach
- 1/2 cup of grapefruit juice
- 1/2 cup of mango chunks (I use frozen)
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/4 cup chopped carrots
- 1 scoop of protein powder (optional)
- Water as needed
Put the grapefruit juice and some water in the blender. Then add protein powder if desired. Then add the spinach slowly with water as needed so that it all gets blended. (CAUTION: No matter how much you want to, don’t stick your finger into the blender when its on to push the spinach down). Once the spinach is blended, add the fruit and carrots. Add water until you get the consistency you want. I like mine liquid, but a little bit thick (like a spinach-shake). Too watery and you won’t be happy. Then, pour into a glass and enjoy with some fresh oranges. Say goodbye to sickness.
This makes several cups worth… drink all of them! Or, if you have sick friends… share.
