Feed a Cold, Starve a Fever

My cold caught up with me and I was bed-ridden today. I missed art class last night. But I was terrifically hungry. I had corn flakes with almond milk for breakfast. The only reason for the corn flakes is because they are a classic, and has less calories than so many of the expensive new "healthy" cereals.  Plus, they are doing a new ad campaign in newspapers with reproduced print ads from 1916 featuring my favorite illustrator, J.C. Leyendecker.  I'm a sucker for nostalgia.

For lunch I went to the Soup Man for some delicious lentil, and mushroom barley. Then dinner was a falafal sandwich and more Turkish lentil soup.

Also, I made a blueberry smoothie - nothing added, just frozen blueberries, a banana and some almond milk. Oh, and I munched on a couple of large nectarines.

Plus, some serious napping during the day from the cold medicine.

Try making shiitake mushroom, and ginger soup when you are ill. Shiitakes have legendary healing powers for your immunity, as they have been used for thousands of years as medicine by the Chinese. Try my Wiki Shitake soup, just leave out the scallops & use mushroom or veggie broth instead of chicken. This recipe is very quick, easy, yummy, and best of all, healing! :)
