I admit it. I have a Pinterest addiction. So when our entire family became immobilized over the past couple of weeks with the flu and ear infections- I turned to Pinterest for some creative remedies. And even started my own Feel Better Board. The next time you are feeling a little under the weather or need to give a get-well care package – this list is for you.
1. Green Flu Fighter Juice from Daily Bites Blog
My juicer has been collecting dust lately – but if this blend works to get back on track – I am ready to pull it out of the cabinet.
2. Flu Tea from My Lemony Kitchen
This soothing blend is a nice change from my standard hot water + lemon + honey.
3. Flu-Buster Clementine Creamsicle Smoothie from Oh She Glows
I was hesitant to try this – but with ripe bananas and avocados on hand and a can of coconut milk without another use- I put this blend to the test with the family. It was a BIG hit with my dear tween and our toddler twins. I did feel better after drinking this (but perhaps because it tasted so creamy).
My tween putting the Clementine Creamsicle to the test – yum!
4. Flu Fighter Cookies from Feeding My Temple
Cookies are made to be comfort food and Pinterest is filled with enticing recipes. I chose this particular recipe as Feeding My Temple breaks down the components to explain just how good-for-you the ingredients are to restoring your body’s balance. I don’t yet have the energy to make these – but will save this recipe for my next care package for a friend.
5. California Baby Bubble Bath – Cold & Flu -Eucalyptus ease
Although made for babies – this aromatherapy bath soap is just what I need to soothe the aches and clear the sinuses. It would also be a perfect complement to a care package filled with Flu Fighter Cookies shown above.
I wish you all health. Do you have any favorite Pinterest finds to fight the flu? Please share below and I will add them to my board.
