I consider myself pretty healthy. Yes, I’m also obsessed with cake and coffee, but for the most part I eat well and stay active. However, coming back from a (mostly!) warm Central America into sub zero Munich, I dreaded the wintery cold season. Cue red noses, ticklerly coughs and husky voices. I was determined not to get ill, so I took action!
First up, making sure I was getting all my vitamins and minerals….
I’m taking glucosamine (to help my joints), probiotics (stomach / gut health after travelling), Perfectil (full of things that are good for your skin, nails and hair) and also Source of Gold multi vitamins with everything you can think of.
I took a Bootea ‘teatox’ for 2 weeks.
So I started cooking a bit at home…
Stuffed chili beef peppers
Baked salmon and veggies
Minute steak with aubergine and mixed mushrooms
And not just my dinners, breakfasts also max’ed their vitamin levels…
I also treated myself to my favourite beauty treatment - a colleague came back from Korea with a bagful of snail slime face masks for me. Heaven!
And, over a month later I’ve survived the worst of the winter season with barely a sniffle - score!
