An orange a day

 These past few days, hubby and I have been nursing a bad cold. I guess instead of admiring the orange trees during our recent trip, we should have been keeping up with our daily dose of vitamin c! Although I'm not very fond of honey I don't mind adding a teaspoon to my cup of tea. Do you have any home-remedies for treating a cold?


  1. Oh no, feel better soon! I do love a bit of honey and lemon to tea when I'm feeling blah. I also tried the gargling-with-salt-water route, switching over to garling-with-Listerine later (the Listerine seemed to help most!).

    The orange trees here are so pretty - reminds me of the ones you see in Sevilla. :)

    (Btw, I loved your comment about your daughter eating the krafna - so cute!)

  2. oh my gosh, i have the worst one now :( it started with a fever now seems to be attacking everywhere. et well sooon!! i'll be drinking lots of tea :)

  3. Chicken soup, hot tea with honey and lemon, and lots of vitamin C, Zinc tablets, and a netti pot for the sinuses!! :-))

  4. Talking about being jealous... ;)

  5. ColdEeze! (http://www.coldeeze.com/) It's insane how quickly they will make you feel better. Also, lots of vitamins. ;)

    Cute blog!

  6. How amazing are those orange trees...wow!
    I usually add a bit of fresh ginger to my lemon-honey green tea:) Try it...Ginger is very good for cold:)
    Kisses, darling and feel better

  7. Aww I hope you get better. Honey and lemon should do the trick.

  8. Honey with hot tea is always good for the throat. I love to sip on chicken broth when I'm sick too it somehow speeds up my sickness! xo

  9. Vitamin D always helps me get over my colds. Those photos are so fun! I love the buildings next to the tree. So historic and beautiful.

    ps- yes, my photos were taken with my new camera. I just love it.

  10. get better soon! anything hot with lemon and garlic (yes, really, disgusting, but it works) nice pics :)


  11. @Jude, I forgot about the gargling with salt. I will try that as well.

    @Krystal, oh no. take care of yourself and yes lots of tea.

    @Poetess. As I'm typing this I'm drinking a cup of hot tea with lemon juice and some honey. I don't have a netti pot but I tried some nasal strips and they really helped me to sleep. it seems the congestion gets worse at night.

    @Dreaming of Palm trees. thank you,

    @Diana, now that you mention it, I do have some ginger in my freezer. I will have to try that. thanks!

    @Ana, thank you.

  12. oh no! i hope you are feeling better! i made a ginger tea with honey and lemon with a bit of pomegranate and it was super yummy!


  13. Those trees are so gorgeous! I LOVE all your pictures (but I'm so sad to hear you're feeling sick!).
    I don't have any home remedies for colds, but I do know that whenever I'm coming down with a sore throat, my mom has me gargle with whiskey. It burns SO much, and you do it twice, but I swear - I wake up the next morning feeling good as new!
    Hope you feel better! xo

  14. oh! sorry to hear you are not your best right now. my grandma used to make garlic tea with lemon and honey. it didn't taste great but it would always make me feel better. hope you're better soon!

  15. start the day with a glass of travarica.
    (not the Badel version, but the real domaci stuff)
    than repeat that every hour till the sun goes down.

    ok, your liver will growing quickly, your eyes will look like you've been fighting, and waht you say is not making any sense.
    but... the flu will stay away, killed by the amount of alcohol in your blood.

    cheers, pim.

  16. Hope you are better. No home remedies for me. Nyquil.

  17. @ Taj soup is always good.

    @Marcie, I will try Vitamin D.

    @Gudrun and Iris. hmmm I like garlic in food, I will have to see how it goes raw, maybe not so bad with lemon? when you are sick, you are willing to try anything. so thank you.

    @CB hot tea with pomegranates does sound yummy.

  18. Hope you feel better soon!!!... chicken and garlic soup!! haha

    Love the photos in some of your previous posts.. what a beautiful country... and fabulous shots!!!

    Have a great week.. and do hope you feel better.. ciao xxx Julie

  19. thank you Allison, you are always so sweet. feeling better now.

    @Thais, thank you!

    @Pim, I tried one drink of that stuff and oh my, 'it's strong!!, I don't think I can drink it every hour.LOL

    @Ivonne, Hubby's first choice was Nyquil. (good thing I brought some with me on my last trip from the states, because here you can't find that stuff.)

    @Julie thanks Julie. I have been intensely drinking honey and lemon wild berries hot tea.

  20. Aww shucks.. being sick is never fun, but those oranges will help pump up your immune system.. pick some, peel some, and eat some up.. or make fresh squeezed orange juice!! yum. Hope you two get better.

    xx Love & Aloha

    p.s. The best thing for colds is fluids and lots and lots of rest. :D Be still like veggies.. hee hee.
