*blows nose dramatically*
The truth is, I have a cold and despite what I’ve been telling people, it isn’t nearly as bad as the plague. Though, anything that keeps me below 100% feels like the plague to me.
I just completely give up. I lay in bed all day, wallowing in my sorrows, while simultaneously drowning in the black hole that is YouTube. And I don’t feel bad about it.
But this time I vowed it would be different (I also vowed I wouldn’t catch C’s cold but clearly that didn’t work out…). I promised to not drag everybody down in my sickness and be proactive about the healing process…
with hot chocolate.
Yes, you read that correctly. I channelled all of my sickness into an epic hot chocolate recipe packed full of superfoods that would make me feel awesome instead of shi-tayyyyy.
And this is the final result…
Yes, my friends, this is me in all of my sickness glory attempting not to sneeze in my food. Admittedly, I rallied and did my hair and makeup, but if you follow me on snapchat then you witnessed the brutal reality that is me when I’m sick.
It’s not cute.
I was proud of myself for getting it together enough to film the recipe for you guys (and subsequently drinking 4 cups of it), but the second we were done filming I dove head first into bed. C was the ultimate and set up my death bed like it was a castle full of puppies, Friends re-runs and even it’s own make-shift tissue disposal! He’s a keeper.
Clearly, there are advantages to being a baby when you’re sick.
But I really do think this Hot Chocolate really helped. I was back to my normal self in less than 48 hours, which for me is unheard of. It’s possible that my sickness persists because I kind of like being babied (never repeat this) but I’m convinced all of the superfood goodness really worked it’s magic.
All’s to say, ditch the tea and go for this immune-boosting superfood hot chocolate instead. If it can cure this sick baby, then it can basically cure the world. Drink up!
