Today I wanted to share two things i've tried off of Pinterest lately. These two things worked brilliantly and should be shared!
First up is wrapping your lettuce or celery in foil. This I thought sounded kind of weird but I was desperate to find a solution for wilted browned lettuce. I made tacos one night last week and wrapped the rest of the head of lettuce in foil and never got to it for another week. It was perfect, crisp and fresh! I thought it would taste all metallic but it didn't. My grocery budget will be singing praises for this tip for a long time to come.
Three weeks ago I had a sore throat. One of the worst i've ever had and it was annoying and coming on when I just didn't have time to be out of commission (who ever has time for that). I referred to pinterest and found this solution. Mix honey, garlic and cayenne pepper. Eat 1/2 teas every half hour. I did it for about 7 hours straight. It was hot but didn't taste repulsive like I thought it would. To me it tasted like if you were to eat chipolte seasoning straight up. It was totally worth it, my sore throat was gone that evening and never came back! From what I read the honey coats the throat and the cayenne pepper increased blood flow to the area for healing and the garlic helps combat any bacteria in the throat. I could really care less what it does or how it does it as long as it worked and it did! So happy!!!
Oh, I also tried the old stand by of gargling with warm salt water but this sore throat was way to big for that simple solution. I also tried taking a dose of apple cider vinegar, that was pure gross, also a little bit like swallowing fire! Stick to the above treatment. So much better.
Thats it so far, I have a least 200 pins of things to try and i'll let you know when I try them and how they turn out. Have a great week!
