Vitamin C, Omega-3, and Penicillin

Scratchiness at the back of my throat might have been from too much talking yesterday. Still, there's no point in taking chances. After a day of sucking on zinc lozenges, further combative measures against the flu seemed like a good idea.

The vitamin C comes from the tomatoes and lemon in the pasta sauce, and the orange chopped as part of the salad. The Omega-3 from a tin of sardines. As for the penicillin, it's pushing it some, but that's the hunks of blue cheese in with the lettuce.

Plenty of garlic is in the squished-up avocado that goes into the pasta, so there's another boost to the immune system. The pasta's healing virtues? The fact of its always-comforting qualities.
