I have been having headaches again - this one has been four days now. Thursday and Friday all day, then I woke up with it Saturday, but it was very mild. We went downtown that morning for the movie, and went to my favorite coffee shop first. I think the caffeine helped, while Jason thinks we are allergic to our house (he suffers from headaches also). So Saturday I had a reprieve, yesterday it was back and again today.
Today I am starting FRESH. Today I am focusing on simple foods - first my juice this morning and now this smoothie.
tropical cure all smoothie
1 small container (11.2 oz) coconut water
⅓ cup fresh pineapple chunks
4 handfuls fresh spinach
Blend, blend, blend!
What are your cures for headache relief? I am currently on allergy medication, magnesium, biofreeze on my head (very soothing!) and now, a lot hydration and whole foods.
tropical mango orange smoothie
My neurologist had me on 200 mgs twice a day of magnesium and 200 mgs teice a day of b2
I will remember this for the inevitable winter colds that are sure to come. this sounds yummy!

Wow, an omega supplement that tastes good? Inconceivable! (ha, couldn't resist!) All the ones I've ever tried had a nasty fishie aftertaste! Mmm, how doesn't like a berry flavored chewy with a hint of fish market on the side?
Kinda confused about the 300% thing...how is it possible to absorb more than 100%?
hee! it really is... they taste AWESOME. hint of fish market - HAAA! so true - and even if you can't taste it right away? you've got Fish Burps all day! 😀
yeah... the 300% absorption - um, Lindsay said it and it sounded COOL? 😉 when I bought these I remember reading their "bioavailablity study" and it was extensive and impressive. like this is the next best thing to a Vitamin IV (which I love...).

I'm sorry about your headache woes, my dear!! I've been battling some myself... Spring is in the air and it can suck it! 😉
yep! we have some good allergy medication, but... well, perhaps it isn't that good! 🙁 feeling better today - lots of water and coconut water and Vitamin B!! 🙂
Have the headaches increased since you spend more time at the house? Have you had any remodeling done? I ask coz new material gives off gasses.
hi Dad!! no remodeling - I was out in the fresh air more yesterday, and drank a lot of water... it helped a lot! see you Sunday?
bummer about the headaches. ;( I'm of no help in that dept but hopefully you got some good cures from others. Your smoothie certainly looks like it would help. I need one of those for my cold. Anyway, hope you're on the mend and headache free soon!
Ugh, fish oil. So gross. I'm currently taking nutravege - a veggie omega-3. Flavor is alright. Going to try it in my smoothies. Good idea!
Love your juices from your prev. post. So lovely! Colorful juices are so more appealing to drink sometimes. 😉
colorful juices are ALWAYS more appealing to drink - although I drink the brown ones often too 😉 I just looked up the nutravege - looks interesting! what is the flavor? thanks for the good thoughts on the headaches... so far so good today, only a mild one 🙂
oh yes, the brown ones...I drink those too but avoid taking pics of them! hee hee!
Glad the headache is only "mild" today...hope it's NADA tomorrow. 😉 I'll keep sending good thoughts since they seem to be working.
I won the nutravege from Bitt's blog and the flavor I got is citrus. It's not bad really but there is something familiar about it (dentist maybe?). I think i will still try using it in a smoothie where it most likely won't be noticed.
yeah, no photos of the brown juice. 😉 thank you for your continued good thoughts, sweet friend!

"No Fishie. No kidding!" bahahaha
I hope your headache improves... generally when I have a headache it's because I haven't drank enough water, or that I'm deficient in Vitamin B. There are so many reasons why you could have a headache, I think an awesome place to start is where you're at right now. Eating as clean as possible should help!
thanks, Leanne! I drank a lot of water yesterday (I feel like I always do, but I was deliberately drinking more...) and I made sure to take my Vitamin B this morning! so far so good... I've been out in the fresh air too, and I think it helps.
