Cold Killer Smoothie & Yoga Twist Routine

Ugh, cold and flu season sucks!  Not only were this year’s flu shots completely worthless, but it has been a brutally cold February that has seen my entire household all get sick at once (GOOD TIMES!).  Since I didn’t want to keep popping Mucinex and DayQuil like Reese’s Pieces, I went looking for a smoothie recipe the cut the legs off my cold.  I found gold in an unlikely place…an MMA Radio Show.  The host of the show was giving props to his teammate’s father for hooking up with a recipe to help him get over  cold he couldn’t shake.  It was a juice recipe, but I made a smoothie out of it because that’s how I roll.  I would def recommend this receipt the next time you are sick.  It’s not the most delicious, but it does the job.  I felt like garbage before I tried this out.  I threw down a couple mason jars of “Cold Killer” and was well enough to dance in a Flashmob in NYC on Valentines Day.  That’s a whole other story, but for more details on this amazing event with a great cause, search the hashtag #DanceOutInLove.  See if you can spot me in the video!
