Tingling pineapple-ginger soda with cayenne

Waylaid with a nasty sore throat and stuffy sinuses? This drink is dynamite. Pineapple is the only known source of bromelain, an enzyme used to treat inflammation, especially of the nose and sinuses.

And the lemon is the perfect zing for awakening and soothing sinuses. Drink a glass of the pineapple mixture straight, or add club soda for a less potent sipper.

Lemon, ginger and cayenne wellness shot

I completely swear by this shot. I’ve jotted the recipe down for any number of people the moment they tell me they aren’t feeling well (and I take it myself at this point, too. Cooties alert). Take this at the first sign of sickness, or if you’re around a lot of office/gym/commute snot. Lemon helps boost immunity and detox, while the ginger reduces flu- and cold-related aches and helps your digestive system. The kick of cayenne can help with fevers and nausea.

Edamame hummus

A version of edamame hummus was served at Joel’s company’s holiday party. It was really great with sweet potato and beet chips and thinly sliced baguette toasts, but I really like dipping fresh veggies in my version.

Spaghetti squash and avocado salad with chicken

I love a new recipe for spaghetti squash. I’d hate to relegate this awesome winter squash to just getting a bottle of marinara sauce dumped on it. Instead, this guy got a mean, green upgrade.
