Sick Day Care Package
REAL SIMPLE SAYS...
These treats taste delicious, of course, but they'll also help nurse you back to health. Take a shot of the Fire Cider at the first sign of symptoms, followed by a cup of comfort tea and a large plate of gingersnap cookies. When all else fails, enjoy an all-natural popped tart (after all, there’s nothing a little sugar can’t cure!).
Scratchy throat. Undying thirst. Inexplicable chills. Sniffles. Sneezing.
Face it: You’ve caught a cold, or worse, the flu. Well, do us a favor and stay home, and keep your infection to yourself! That being said, we still want to help nurse you back to health.
So build a couch fort of tissue boxes, cough syrup and blankets, and dig into this set of indie illness-fighters.
Start with a bracing shot of Fire Cider: apple cider vinegar packed with immune-boosting citrus, ginger, garlic and turmeric. Our CEO Craig swears by it as an instant pick-you-up when the dreaded symptoms first start. It’s also way more fun than a packet of Vitamin C powder.
Next, brew a soothing, restorative mug of organic mint, rose hips, lemon and ginger, all packed into one aromatic bag of herbal Cold Comfort Tea. Drizzle in a stick of raw wildflower honey – so convenient and anti-mess, you could do it lying down.
Stomach bug? Reach for crisp, light sesame lavash crackers. They make great plain sidekicks for scrambled eggs, chicken noodle soup, even peanut butter.
Gingersnap cookies are a not-too-sweet treat you can actually handle, thanks to their boosting ginger bite. And if you really can’t do much more, throw the indie popped tart in the toaster oven, like you did as a kid. (Hey, at least this one’s not bad for you.)
These holistic goodies are so good, you might actually want to stay in bed for a few days.
Get well soon!
