I don’t use the word hate much…but I HATE seeing my little ones sick :(  Especially little T – he looks so sad – with his little droopy eyes and his red, stuffed, drippy nose.  He is just now getting over his week-long cold/flu & I am trying my absolute best to avoid getting the rest of the house sick too.  And if one kid gets sick, the next one gets sick, and then Hubs gets sick.  I’m sure you can relate mama’s, but a sick Hubs is worse than a sick kiddo any day.  And, I, at all costs will use every measure possible to avoid that from happening!!

So, what’s my strategy for keeping my family healthy and nursed back from sickness?!  All the essentials…homeopathic honey cold & cough medicine, Kleenex tissues (we love the ultra soft ones for V&T’s little red drippy noses), lots & lots of water, and massive amounts of veggies & fruits.  Very simple, but it works!!  And so far (crossing my fingers & toes) no one else has gotten the little T flu virus yet – wahoo!!  That’s a recipe for success, if you ask me!!  (oh & pssst – here’s a deal for ya on Kleenex too – for a limited time at Target use this coupon to grab a $1 off Kleenex 4 packs or larger – saaawheet!)

And…want to know my newest way to fill their bellies with veggies during flu season?!  It’s to put as many veggies possible (and I mean A LOT!!) into a nice warm & filling soup – yum!  And, this my friends is the best soup for that… Seven Vegetable Minestrone Soup …it’s super yummy, chocked FULL of veggies, so healthy, & bound to kick that yucky flu to the curb.  Peace out flu!!

  1. […] Meal three: Soups aren’t always the most appealing during hot summer days but I find the warm comfort food can still be great especially when you take them for lunch the next day and your office building is sub-arctic. Use the mixed squash, carrots, slicing tomatoes, and Egyptian spinach for a Seven Vegetable Minestrone Soup. […]
