I tried a different approach with this annoying head cold I picked up this week. Usually when I feel under the weather I indulge my cravings for chicken soup, crackers, breads and all forms of comfort food that I don’t normally eat.

This time, no. I bucked the cravings all the way. Instead, grilled chicken with lemony spinach and garlic risotto. A lemon pepper tuna steak with a big salad. Lots of fruit.

What a difference! I’m still congested and have a bit of a lingering headache, but I don’t have the gross feeling that usually follows eating all those carbs.

Ahhhhhh …
