I woke up this morning with a pounding head and a throat that refused its own duties (swallow? no thanks); it’s a sick day for this RD, and I’m going crazy! Who gets a cold in the Spring? This is not fun.
Sleep, green tea, and more sleep have taken over my day. I took a Multivitamin and Vitamin C this morning – neither serve as a cure, but they can’t hurt, right? My other go-to cold-remedies typically involve Propel (not as sweet as juice, but still tastes better than plain H2O), Nyquil (I can only handle 1/2 dose – otherwise I’m in a coma), Halls throat lozenges, and warm tea + honey (Mom’s recipe!). So far it seems to be helping, so I’ll stick with it.
What are you go-to Cold fixes?
On another note, we spent the weekend in North Carolina! It was a quick road trip to visit his Fam for Mother’s Day, and it was perfectly timed. I needed to get out of the city, and I love a good sunshine-filled drive. We left Friday afternoon, and returned last night. I took minimal pictures – sometimes it feels better to unplug and just relax.
Without motivation to go grocery shop and unpack and cook, we chose a dinner out at one of our favorites – Bus Boys & Poets. There are a lot of things I love about this restaurant/bookstore/bar/venue, and the Menu is one high on that list…
Named after Langston Hughs – a Busboy at a DC hotel in the 1920s,
who left “several of his poems on the dinner table” for a diner to read one night.
He eventually gained recognition for his talent;
some of his poems are printed throughout the menu to read.
Obviously, I also love their menu options! There is a wide variety of foods, including vegetarian and vegan entrees, salads, soups and desserts. This time around, we shared the “Vegan Pizza” – just to test it out! – and a side salad for some greens. The pizza had Vegan Mozzarella, vegan pepperoni ( I picked that off, it sounded a little odd to me), mushrooms, onions, marinara, green & red peppers and a whole-wheat crust. It was delicious…
Tonight I’ll be testing out a new type of pasta – quinoa style. Interesting, yea? I’ll keep you posted. 🙂
