The students. They are getting sick. Mr. L, my cooperating teacher, is sick. He brought in sanitizing spray for the tables and chairs. I don't believe he washes his hands before he eats, though. I know I've forgotten a couple times, but now I am diligent. I also use sanitizing lotion in the classroom.
Today a teacher teased me by calling me "Lemon girl." I've been bringing lemons to school and squeezing them in my water bottle and adding Stevia to make lemonade. I started doing this last week when I thought I might be getting a cold. Turns out I enjoy the lemonade AND it gives me a vit. C boost. I've also been drinking juice in the morning made from 1 orange, 1 grapefruit, 1 apple, 1 lemon, small bunch of romaine and/or kale, and 3 celery stalks. My palate is really adapting to the green taste. I was thinking "what will I do when I visit my parents at Christmas?" But then I remembered green smoothies. I use frozen (or fresh) fruit, like pineapple and blueberry and blend it with spinach and a little kale. I prefer the frozen fruit because it's icey and makes a nice smoothie.
So far, my health has made a turn around for the better. My digestion is awesome and my immune system seams to be much better. We'll see how well it holds up. I'm NOT getting a flu shot. I reacted terribly to my tetanus booster 1.5 years ago. Plus, it might not even work. Food will be my medicine this year.
