How Safeway and #FloridaOJ is getting us through the cold/flu season.
Well…it’s been a rough week for the Crafty Family. Both girls got hit with this weirdo norovirus that is going around and then so did I. Brutal stuff I tell you. I have had it since Saturday afternoon and as I type this I am still fighting off a headache, sinus pain and chills. Yuck. I am such a germ-a-phobe that I was racking my brain as to how we contracted it. A call to my doctor’s confirmed that basically the whole town has it, so it was inevitable I guess.
Since cold/flu season is in full swing in IL I decided to arm myself with knowledge so this possibly will be the last time we get hit this winter.
#1. Spice it up. Green and red peppers or hot sauce help clean out your sinuses natural plus help you taste your food!
#2 Drink 100 % Juice. It’s tasty, filled with antioxidants and minerals plus loads of vitamins to boost your immune system. My kids can’t get enough of 100% Florida OJ. (Yes, it has to be 100%. They notice, plus I want the best for my munchkins.) #FloridaOJ
#3. Eat LOTS of fruits & veggies. Bananas, blueberries, dark green and/or vibrant colored veggies are all packed with crucial vitamins to boost your natural defenses. Our favorites in my house? Bananas, blueberries, blackberries, red grapes, spinach (yes my kids love it), broccoli and green beans. I’ve also got them hooked on sweet potatoes and my youngest has been diggin’ beets lately.
#4. Go Nuts. Really. Nuts like pistachios, walnuts and sunflowers seeds have immune boosting minerals like magnesium, vitamin E and potassium. Plus they are delicious. 🙂
On my latest trip to Dominick’s (a Safeway store) I grabbed a pamphlet called Be Well, Save Well. It had loads of tips, 4 coupons plus a great tea recipe.
Here’s the awesome tea recipe. I bought cinnamon tea while I was there so I can make my own modified version of it.
I used these two coupons to make up my own cold/flu kit.

Seriously head to your nearest Safeway brand store and grab your own pamphlet at the pharmacy. Stay healthy and save while you are doing it!
