So, for some reason I keep getting horrible colds this winter, and I am getting pretty sick of it. Because the normal response I get when I ask people is honey, does anyone know what helps to alleviate cold symptoms? I will admit to eating pretty crappily (a lot of cereal, peanut butter, and dried fruit is currently sitting in my tummy), so I know I should work on eating better to actually _prevent_ colds, but I don't usually have the time, so yes, I already know of that solution. But anyways, I would appreciate any suggestions, especially for actual cold-alleviating meals I could whip up quickly.
EDIT: Thank you all so much! I am taking all of your suggestions to heart, and actually feeling a lot better now. You're so sweet to me.
