Welcome in the new year with these winter slow cooker soup recipes. As a busy mother, wife and writer, I have to plan ahead if I’m going to achieve my health goals. When I utilize my slow cooker, I’m able to quickly and easily prepare family meals. These hearty soup recipes will warm you on a cold night and support you nutritionally too. Begin 2013 on a strong note with these soup recipes.

Continued from Day 2

 

 

I’m learning so much from becoming a quasi-hypocondriac, self absorbed in

studying every aspect of my current rhinovirus.

I came up with a couple of new tips too!

So, as you may notice, this is the 3d day of my apparent viral infection. Therefore my claim about getting better in 1-2 days is not working, is it? Well, I cannot guarantee the course of anybody’s health, there are wayyyyy too many factors to make a guarantee.

And in the case of cold viruses. Significantly, there are over 200 types of cold viruses and they each may behave differently, plus they are often mutating (which I do not yet understand).

So, it doesn’t mean I’m wrong, it can mean that this is a stronger strain of the virus, or I was overtired….or something…

But at any rate, I promise to be honest about the progress, whether it makes me look good or bad on this blog.

New Tip #1  A heating pad. I found our old one in the cupboard, turned it on high and slept with it on my chest and throat all night.  Felt really good!

our house is heated unevenly, so living room tends to get overheated and my bedroom is cooler. And I seem to be that way too, lately I’m spending a lot of time alternating between too cold, and putting on more layers of clothing, drinking more hot drinks, and then all of a sudden I break a sweat and have to throw it all off..

New Tip #2 Smear your nose and upper lip with vaseline petroleum jelly before it gets raw from blowing your nose.

The first day my virus was just a tickly sore cough in my chest, now yesterday it turned into a runny nose, and occasional coughs. And now I’m going through the kleenexes. With more runny nose after I drink more hot teas. This is flushing the virus out, though. so its good.

But Vaseline prevents that rawness around the nose, and is generally good for my dry skin too. (also helps with hair coloring treatments to prevent color stains on the skin.)
