For the last few weeks I have been battling a cold/cough/runny nose. Once the cold was gone I have been stuck with a lingering cough. I have my arsenal of cold fighters to help me feel better and get back on track.
Once I feel a cold come on I reach for Emergen-C. I mix a packet in with my water and I continue doing so daily till I feel better. It kick starts the feel good energy in my system.
So this tea kinda tastes like herbal chest rub, however it really breaks down your cough and helps soothes a achy chest. It contains a lot of feel good herbs like cinnamon, clove, ginger and cardamom. Drink a warm cup in the morning to help you breathe better all day long.
Another tea by Yogi - this is more pleasant to drink and ginger is known to help stomach aches - good for when you really do not want to eat. Both of these teas can be found at Trader Joe's at around $3 a box.
When your appetite is weak reach for some Amy's "No Chicken Noodle" soup. It is comforting and will warm you up without making your stomach ache more. I think it tastes great with a pinch of nutritional yeast sprinkled in.
Remember get a lot of rest, take it easy and feel better soon.
