    This recipe was adapted from the recipe "A Recipe For The One Who Is Getting Some Kind Of Cold" from the book "I Like Food, Food Tastes Good". It is my go-to soup when I'm feeling under the weather or even when my co-workers are and I want to bolster my immune system.

    Recipe #469583

    This recipe is yummy, not healthy, but I wanted an authentic tea party recipe as I'm having one for a recuperating friend. I'll make it gluten-free vegan (GFV) and a bit healthier by using GFV "cream cheese", halving the salt, omitting the food coloring, and serving it on GF bread. The original recipe comes from Louisville's Courier-Journal: "The famous cucumber spread was, of course, created by one of our city's most famous residents, Jennie C. Benedict. Setting the highest of culinary standards, "Miss Jennie" was also a successful businesswoman, a writer who for a time served as editor of The Courier-Journal's Household section, and an important community volunteer. ... Probably the most intriguing recipe of all is that which keeps Miss Jennie's name on Louisville lips. Here is the version supplied by cookbook author and former Courier-Journal food editor Ronni Lundy. It is the one that Jennie C. Benedict would most likely have included in her book."

    Recipe #447766

    Adapted recipe from Gourmet Magazine.

    Recipe #427844

    This is the best tasting spaghetti sauce I've come across so far. I adapted it from the Discovery Health network's show "Healthy Decadence". The host is Devin Alexander and this is her grandmother's recipe, although I did not like the ground cloves in it. I also wasn't willing to use 2 bunches of fresh parsley, so I use half fresh and half dried. Serve over whole grain pasta (I recommend brown rice pasta, especially for those not accustomed to whole grain pastas) and with a salad. I usually cook quartered crimini mushrooms in 1 cup of sauce for every 2 people or every other week, add baked chicken or turkey meatballs or Hain's spicy chicken sausage (it's lower in sodium than most and can be found at Whole Foods Market). I also usually have a couple of people over for dinner and freeze the leftover sauce in 1 cup containers, which yields dinner for 4 plus 5 servings for future weeks. It's necessary to serve cooked tomatoes to men at least once per week since the lycopene reduces their chances of getting prostate cancer. According to You: The Owner's Manual, "To absorb the optimum amount [of lycopene] (that is, 400 milligrams per week), you'd have to eat 164 raw tomatoes or 16 cooked ones—but you need only 10 tablespoons of tomato sauce a week."

    This is a vegan version of Macaroni and Cheese adapted from the book, Breaking The Food Seduction by Neal Barnard, M.D. I prefer it over low-fat versions of real Macaroni and Cheese.

    Recipe #165127

    This cough-inhibiting concoction may help with easing of cold symptoms. Garlic inhibits cough and cold microbes and is an effective decongestant. Honey are considered by many to be a respiratory tonic, improving breathing, and is also known to be antimicrobial, assisting the immune system with fighting infection. Lemon reduces and thins mucus and alters the body's pH, which may make it less hospitable to viruses and bacteria. I make it every winter to prevent colds and because I think it tastes good. I adapted the recipe from one in Prevention magazine. To find it, you can Google the article title: This Tea Busts Colds!
