You’ve washed your hands like crazy and practiced prevention to avoid a cold. but here it is! You got one anyway!

What now? I know you want it to go away, like yesterday!!!

Here’s a cold busting smoothie you can make every day while you have a virus to boost your immune system and assist in making your cold as short as possible! Each ingredient serves a purpose.

Cold Busting Smoothie

Ingredients:

1 Cup of Fresh Orange Segments (Vitamin C)

1 Cup of Frozen Mango (Vitamin C)

1 Cup of Brewed and Cooled Chamomile Tea (Soothes Sore Throats)

1 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice (Vitamin C)

2 Tablespoon of Unsweetened Coconut Flakes (Fiber)

1 Teaspoon of Chia Seeds (Fiber and Omega 3)

1/8 Teaspoon of Cinnamon (anti-bacterial & anti-inflammatory)

1 Teaspoon of Black Elderberry Syrup (I use this) (immune boosting, antioxidants)

1 Teaspoon of Raw Honey (antibacterial, helps relieve sore throats and coughs)

Directions:

Blend all the ingredients together, except the elderberry syrup, in a blender on high. Pour into a glass. Drizzle the elderberry syrup on top. You can add some additional mango on top if you want to.

In addition, while you have a cold, make sure you get enough rest, stay hydrated, sip warm liquids (chamomile tea helps soothe a sore throat), add moisture to the air, and use an over the counter saline nasal spray.

Paleo Chai Tea Mix

There is nothing that says comfort and feels like a warm hug more than a cup of hot Chai Tea. Hot Chai smells so good, and I have sweetened this mix with low glycemic coconut sugar! If you are looking for a sweetened, creamy Chai mix that you can scoop into your cup and make at a moments notice when you want Chai, this recipe is for you! You can make it with the non-dairy milk of your choice for a latte or hot water for a creamy Chai Tea. Enjoy!!!

Chai Tea Mix Dairy Free

Chai Tea Mix

1 Cup of Powdered Coconut Milk (I use this)

1/2 Cup of Laird’s Superfood Coffee Creamer (here)

3/4 Cup of Coconut Sugar

1/2 Cup of Instant Tea (I use this all natural kind)

2 Teaspoons of Cinnamon

1 Teaspoon of Cardamom

1/2 Teaspoon of Cloves

Directions:

Pulse the Coconut Milk, Coconut Sugar, Instant Tea and Spices in a food processor to combine. This makes the Coconut Sugar less coarse, so it dissolves faster.

Layer the tea mixture and the Laird’s Creamer in a glass jar alternating between the tea mixture and the creamer. Add your mix to hot milk of choice or hot water and whisk to taste. I like 3 to 4 tablespoons per cup, but make it how you like it. It really depends on how big your cup is and personal preference.

Italian Sheet Pan Pork Tenderloin and Vegetables

Italian Sheet Pan Pork Tenderloin Dinner.JPGSheet pan meals are a quick and easy way to get a full meal on the table. This Italian dish has lean pork tenderloins, butternut squash and red cabbage! The tenderloins are tender and juicy, and the secret ingredient that’s not so secret is truffle salt! If you have never used it before, it is a fantastic way to add umami. I am obsessed with it lately! Also, the combination of Three salts……a pink, a smoked, and a truffle salt, all used judiciously, makes this pork crusty and oh so good!

You can serve this as a meal in itself! It is Plenty! But, you can also bump it up real fast by adding some cooked leafy greens on the side like the Swiss Chard shown above and some Kelp Noodles! Your choice! Keep going! The recipe is next!

Italian Sheet Pan Pork Tenderloin and Vegetables

Italian Sheet Pan Pork Tenderloin and Vegetables

Ingredients:

2 Pork Tenderloins

1 Small Red Cabbage (shredded by hand with a knife)

1 Medium Butternut Squash (peeled, seeded and cubed)

4 Tablespoons of Olive Oil, divided

1/2 Teaspoon of Pink Salt, divided

1 Teaspoon of Dried Marjoram

1 Teaspoon of Dried Thyme

1 Teaspoon of Dried Parsley

1 Teaspoon of Dried Oregano

1/2 Teaspoon of Truffle Salt (I use this brand)

1/2 Teaspoon of Smoked Salt (here)

1/4 Teaspoon of Pink Salt

1/2 Teaspoon of Onion Powder

1/2 Teaspoon of Garlic Powder

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 400° degrees F. On a Large Sheet Pan, toss the shredded cabbage and cubed butternut squash with two tablespoons of good olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon of pink salt.

Place the vegetables in the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, mix together the remaining herbs, spices and salts, including the second 1/4 teaspoon of the pink salt. Make sure to crush your smoked salt before blending in the other spices, because it is a little chunkier salt. Coat the pork tenderloins with the seasoning you just prepared. In a non-stick skillet, add 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil. Sautee the pork tenderloins over medium high heat until browned on both sides. Set aside until the twenty minutes have passed for the vegetables in the oven.

Now, add the browned pork tenderloins to the top of the vegetables that have been roasting. Roast an additional twenty minutes, or just until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145°F. Remove the sheet pan from the oven, and let the tenderloins set for ten minutes before slicing.

Serve!
