Illnesses

4 Jan

As you know from my previous post there has been a lot of illness and a lot of messes to be cleaned up. Everyone is on the mend or is better. I have no idea how I have managed to avoid being ill so far. The only thing that I have done is eat a lot of umeboshi which is a pickled plum. The Japanese swear by it for preventing illnesses, helping with that time of the month and other things. Warning they are very sour so eating one and making sure you mind the pit with a small bowl of rice or whatever just to cut the sour will work. I have also been eating more rice lately because we got a new rice cooker that makes really good rice not that our other one didnt but, it is nice to have a timer and to be able to keep it warm for an extended amount of time. I have also gotten a lot of rest as well. This has been very nice not having to get up before the crack of dawn. Now that school is back in session I am very sad.

I have also been drinking warm/hot fluids. Like tea and coffee. Green tea especially is a good antioxidant. Not sure if this will prevent you or even myself from getting the flu but, it is worth a try.

Stay warm, safe and healthy.
