I woke up this morning with swollen, puffy eyes, stinging ears, and a headache. I don't think my body is as excited about the Birmingham Fall as I am. I thought about making my Immune Boosting Chicken Soup, but realized I do not have that kind of time today. After dragging myself into work two hours late, I did a little research on Golden Milk in between clients. Here is what I found out. Golden Milk is believed to: 1. Act fast as an anti-inflammatory 2.

Spring is in the air! As the weather gets warmer, I still crave a warm cup of coffee in the morning. Right now we're brewing a local grind from Red Bike Coffee . It is devine!
