Cough Tea

It’s that time of year. 

The time that, to me, is worse than spring. The time that brings the fall cough! 

You know the one. The one that never really goes away and you’ve had so long you’re not sure when it first appeared. It’s the same one that you don’t want to go to the doctor for because you’re positive it’s just something that has blown about with the change of seasons. 

I like to call it the “allergy faker.” 

Like Carly with her constant sinus fight, I have the constant cough fight. And although I always win, the shorter I have to deal with it the better.  

I also have to think about the fact that I have a child and he and his friends are in and out constantly, and I’d really prefer they not share anything with me. Lord knows no parent wants to start that viscous circle of sick. 

So, that’s where my favorite cough-away recipe comes in. It’s delicious, aids sleep and it’s for adults only! 

Wellness Tea and Whiskey, two new best friends.  





This is genius, if I do say so myself.  The benefits of this cup of awesome seem to be endless.  

You're getting aid with immunity boosting properties and stress reduction from the tea, honey, Essential Oils..and even the bourbon - solely based on what studies you read and grandma's old wives tales.  

The Essential Oils used in this, as always, are pure food grade quality and are part of the Young Living Vitality Line.  Both lemon and peppermint have throat soothing and calming, natural benefits to help soothe that . 

This specific tea will most likely naturally boost your energy, making this a definite day time tea.  If you want a night time tea I would recommend going with a Spiced Apple Cider Tea like this.  

Well, I hope you have a new favorite cough relief drink. I for one and going to make some now.  Sleep will be peaceful.  

Be sure to come back as we have 3 more days of tea in store for you.

I'll be back soon!

National Coffee Day!!

Something you should know about me, I LOVE my coffee. It gets me going every morning and gives me a pick-me-up when I really need a push to get through the day and I seriously don't function well without it.  So much so, it's kind of become a running joke with my family and friends. In fact,  my best friend, Miss Courtney , would greet me at the door in silence with a cup of coffee if I'd been up late the night before. She gets me. I'm drinking some now as I type this. When I started Intermittent Fasting, I was relieved to find that I didn't have to give up my coffee. I just had to switch to unsweetened and black, which wasn't too big of a deal, because I had completed a sugar detox a couple years before discovering IF. Through the detox, I became somewhat taste-sensitive to sugar where, depending on the food item, a little was almost too much for me anymore. As a result, my coffee was mainly just a little bit of cream anyway. It makes

Getting Mono Meant No Caffeine Ever!

Caffeine, one word, so many meanings. Coffee, soda, tea, energy drinks, one shots, chocolate...caffeine is everywhere.  While this is a great blessing for most people, for a few of us out there it's terrible.  Especially when it's suddenly just taken away.   Welcome to my world when I was just past 18 and getting ready for freshman year of college. A little back story.  We moved from Indiana to Kansas the summer before my senior year was to start.  So, as if the life of a teenager isn't already "hard" enough, add in all new everything before what is supposed to be the best year of school ever.  You guessed it, I hated everything and everyone at this point.  Not even a month in and my appendix ruptures. I spent over a week, up to the Fourth of July, in the hospital.  Summer really was awful by that point.   First day of school, sent to principal’s office for wearing a spaghetti strap tank top and had to wear a very large ugly school mascot shirt over it.
