Rather than reinventing the wheel for today’s blog post, I thought I would share what I am drinking tonight and why.
The I-am-not-getting-the-flu Hot Toddy
Green tea with lemon
½ tsp Braggs apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp local honey
1 shot Makers Mark
Cinnamon to taste or one stick
I don’t get sick very often and knock-on-wood I have never had the flu. In the last fifteen years I have taken antibiotics four times. One of those times was a requirement before having a surgeon remove my wisdom teeth – I wasn’t even sick!
I can feel when my body is fighting off illness.
Typically I go to bed early or take a long nap and wake up feeling better. Not this time. I have slept 16 of the last 24 hours and still feel exhausted. My body is fighting off something fierce and I fear it is the flu which is at epidemic proportions this year.
In case you’re wondering, no, I didn’t get a flu shot. I was afraid it would give me something worse than what I feel today. I will refrain from my any-immunization soapbox today. It is time to finish the hot toddy and take a nap.
