“Oh Crap I Have A Cold” Smoothie

Oh crap, I have a cold.

My current client is a textbook publishing company, and we’re doing a series of fitness photoshoots where we go to different schools and photograph kids doing exercises.

(Which means I find it hilarious to tell people, “I shot 40 kids today!”)

In the last 2 weeks I’ve worked with over 150 kids.  It was only a matter of time before I caught a cold.  I started to feel something last week, so I took a bunch of Cold-FX and it went away.  And then came back in full force yesterday.

But I’m happy, because I haven’t had a cold in several months, whereas last year I was getting them every 6 weeks or so.   I just hope it doesn’t last too long, because next week is going to be LONG and I need to be at 100% (my current 100%, which is more like 75%).

“Oh Crap I Have A Cold” Smoothie

1/2 cup pomegranate juice
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 banana
1 giant orange (I was too lazy to peel it, so I cut it in half and then scooped the pulp into the blender.  This would be much easier with a grapefruit spoon.)

1 cup frozen raspberries and blueberries
1 tbsp sprouted chia powder

Blend.  Drink.

Looks suspiciously like my last smoothie.  Originally I was going to make a super powered smoothie full of spinach and stuff, but I just wanted something fruity and delicious.

I spent my entire day looking up medical articles and resources that I can print and bring to my doctor’s office to convince him to treat my thyroid symptoms.   In the meantime, I’m looking for another doctor, but I haven’t had much luck yet.  I’ve emailed lots of local medical professionals, even talk show hosts, but I haven’t heard anything back.

What do you do when you have a cold? I have to be better in 6 days!
