Green Sick Solution

Good morning,
I had a great weekend, but I'm up this Monday morning with a raw sore throat, headache, and low fever. NOT cool!
I'm drinking my coffee like Edward sucking the venom out of Bella. . . the hot liquid makes my throat feel so much better.
Something cold and numbing would hit the spot at lunchtime. My thoughts gravitate to yogurt or fro-yo but I'd like to avoid the dairy and have something more nutritious. I've never made a green smoothie but maybe today is the day to try one, perhaps with spinach and thickened with some xantham gum I bought last week. I haven't tried the stuff yet but I've read about how thick and creamy it can make a smoothie.
Do you have a recipe for a green smoothie or any ideas for what I should add? Please leave a comment or send me an email at

oh no, hope you feel better soon! the simplest way is to throw some spinach into a smoothie with a banana and other normal smoothie ingredients :)

I hope you feel better soon. I did a post on green smoothies yesterday with some links to some good recipes. I add flax seeds or chia to mine and they are pretty thick. I usually need to add water.
Get well soon!
