What's In Our Fridge Friday--Mama's Prenatal Supplement Edition



Gulp. Chug. Sip. Pop. Choke.
The daily routine of a baby grower. 

Although my midwife doesn't recommend any particular supplement, and claims all nutrients can be derived from food, (and I agree) I don't always eat kale for breakfast, lunch & dinner and am pretty sure that the croissant + raspberry jelly didn't count for much...

So I take a pretty pennies worth of powders, pills, fibers & oils to ensure little Miss grows big and strong in there. The elderberry syrup has been thrown into the mix lately to ward off the sickies. 
No. More. Sickies.
I won't stand for it. 

If you'd like to win your own awesome, delicious, gorgeously designed sickie fighting set of Elderberry Syrup & Thyme, Lemon + Honey Throat Soothing Syrup from Orange Chair Herbs in Connecticut then leave me a comment telling me what your favorite remedies for cold & flu.

Around here we go to Apple cider vinegar first.

Gargle with it when you have a sore throat.
Drink it in some hot water with a little raw honey added after it cools a bit

Also cayenne pepper is great for us...we put it in capsules, and seems to help get rid of any sickies we have very quickly!

I drink some emergen-C. Even more vitamin C, and some zinc.

My mom would make some sage and elderflower tea when I had a cough. Oh, that sage tea smelled like cows. Ick.

When we get colds we get plenty of rest, drink lots of water, and eat soup, any kind of soup will do because that is just what you are supposed to do when you are sick! lol Luckily, we aren't sick very often.

Jennie said...

We head straight for the nyquil, but I'd love to try some more natural options.

My remedy for colds and flu is Theraflu and Hydra Throat Lozenges from Cepacol. I do NOT use Zicam because I think I'm allergic. It made me WAY sicker. Rest and liquids are good too, especially hot tea! kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

I make boiled onion soup as a throat soother. Just peel and chop an onion and boil it and sip the broth. Recommended to me by an Afghan coworker and I tried it and think it works great.
