This past Tuesday will always be remembered as that time I fainted on the subway.
Dehydration + Cold/Flu Thing = Disaster
I’m usually really good about staying hydrated and pestering those around me to drink more water. But I was not my usual self for a few days. I was under the weather and totally out of it.
Don’t pick yourself up off the floor of a train and go wandering around a subway platform if all you can see are colored spots and shadows. Don’t be me. I was stupid.
I always turn to smoothies and veggie juices when I need a little extra boost. I saw this smoothie recipe on NYTimes.com and my first thought was, “Well that sounds disgusting.”
But I like cabbage on its own, so I thought I’d make some tiny adjustments and give it a go.
You can probably guess where this is going, since I wouldn’t share something gross with you, would I? I wouldn’t. I like you too much.
I like you. I like this smoothie. Let’s all come together and drink to our health!
