Everyone knows when you have the flu or are ill in anyway it can be difficult to eat properly. A lot of doctors use to "go to" Gatorade or Powerade to keep your electrolytes in balance. There are a few things that you should try to eat when you are ill:
- coconut water- this will help keep your blood sugar up without all the high fructose corn syrup
- homemade vegetable soup- use fresh ingredients
- oatmeal- try making some plain oatmeal - no sugar
- hard boiled egg whites- just throw out the yolk
- fruit Popsicle- make your own with fresh fruit
- turkey- the lean protein will help your body fight off the illness
- ginger- this is great for calming your stomach
- hot tea- chai tea or green tea is good also chamomile herbal tea
- bananas- great on the stomach
- don't forget plenty of water and plenty of sleep! Follow up your illness with a detoxing bath and diet for a few days
From my previous post, I had a lot of pulp left over. So I figured out another recipe for these muffins.
Here it is!
4 Cups Pulp
1 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/2 Cup Whole Wheat bread flour
3/4 Cup Sunflower Oil
1/4 Cup Grape Seed Oil
1 Cup Raw Honey
1 Tsp All Spice
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Cloves
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
I put everything in my standing KitchenAid mixer with the dough hook.
I let it mix on low for about 10 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Put batter in parchment muffin tins with olive oil sprayed on them.
Cook them for 45 minutes
Take them out and enjoy them.
You can put cream cheese on them, honey on them, or spiced butter! Enjoy them with tea for breakfast.
I don't know about you but I love love love juice! If you get juices at the store, they are not fresh- or as fresh as they could be. Fresh juice
I filled an old tea bottle with this juice and I'm drinking it today and tomorrow. Here is the recipe:
1 inch piece of ginger
