I have always figured that being “immersed” in germs is a good thing…..building lots of immunity against most illness!
And….knock on wood…it usually works!
But this year it seems that every news report includes yet another report about how widespread and big the outbreaks of this year’s flu strain are…..
Now…I don’t usually get too worried about catching it…..
but when one of my friends (a great strapping 40 something man) ended up in bed for two weeks…..
and a young freshman student in my school actually lost her life to the flu….
I realized it was time to get myself my very first FLU SHOT ever…..alas….not until last week….so it will be a while before the shot takes full effect!
In the MEANTIME….I decided I need to get serious about some strategies to ward off those bugs!
Our VITAMIX has been getting a workout making this delicious Grapefruit Juice!
Eating whole grapefruit is sort of a pain….
CostCo has big bags of grapefruit for “cheap”….
I also planted some Wheat Grass a month earlier than usual…..
Yup….you know…I think Marvin is trying to get some flu fighting anti-oxidants of his own!!!
So I guess now I need to WASH the wheat grass before I use it!!!
How are YOU warding off the flu at your house?
Hopefully you are not reading this from your sick beds….but if so….I wish you a speedy recovery!!!
HMMMM….maybe I will print those germ photos and frame them…..as sort of a talisman for warding off the flu?
