This cold and flu season, keep yourself hydrated and fortified with these vegan and vegetarian sick day recipes.
There is no cure for the common cold. These recipes will not ‘cure’ your cold, but instead will hopefully help you feel better by filling you with nourishing ingredients and throat-soothing liquids.
Have you stayed healthy this winter?
I sincerely hope so.
However, I keep seeing news stories about epidemic flu levels.
I’ve been disinfecting all the things, washing my hands constantly, stocking up on pantry essentials for my emergency food supply, and being hyper-aware of what I touch in public.
You know, all the things we’re supposed to be doing.
Even so, flu season is still running rampant, and I know quite a few of you are feeling under the weather.
These sick day recipes are for you. And for me, the next time I catch a cold.
