So lately I've been a little tired. And had these ugly black bags under my eyes. Ok not lately, its been going on for months. Boo! I've tried lots of tricks - reducing coffee (I could try that a little harder), getting more sleep, drinking more water, reducing sugar, blah, blah blah. No joy.
I wandered into the local organic shop I found (no farmers market but an organic store. You win some ...) and saw signs for wheat grass juice. Harking back to my days when I managed an organic grocery department in a health store I remember learning that wheat grass juice is good for lotsa stuff. I figured I'd give it a go. Turns out they don't juice it onsite, but they freeze it in ice cube bags so you can get a bunch of servings to have throughout the week.
When I told the organic lady why I wanted it, she threw a bulb of organic garlic into my bag. For free! I love free stuff. Especially organic garlic. It was huge.
Bruschetta (By Jenn)
3 cloves garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
healthy shake of dried basil (fresh would be better but I was out), salt and a little pepper.
Dice the tomatoes, finely chop (or mince) the garlic and add it to a bowl with everything else. Stir it all up and leave to sit for a little while so the flavours can all get to know each other.
I still love free stuff :)
So what do you do when you're feeling a little run down? And have you ever OD'd on garlic?
