Weather Got You Down? Cure Your Winter Ills With A Vitamin C Cocktail

Put your mixology skills to the test with a cocktail that could, in fact, heal you.

If you’re like NewsFeed, you pop an Airborne or Emergen-C tablet at the first sign of a sore throat in the winter. But there’s only so much gritty orange flavor you can handle. Why not mix your vitamin boost into cocktail form instead?

These drinks from The Bachelor Guy sound like a good idea in theory – though NewsFeed cannot vouch on taste. But when drinking one of these at a party, you’ll fit right in while epitomizing the old proverb “Drink to your health.”

One of the most delicious-sounding is the “Rock Your World” Healthy Cocktail, involving a mix of Emergen-C, orange juice and sparkling water. The recipe suggests you garnish the drink with fresh raspberries and orange slices.

The best part is, adding fresh fruit can only help boost those necessary antioxidants. And once you’re feeling 100%, maybe it’s time to spike these concoctions.

See the full list at The Bachelor Guy.

MMA is a fully sanctioned, highly regulated, international professional sport that features skilled martial artists and elite athletes many of whom have competed at the collegiate and even Olympic level!  There is a disconnect between the fight community and the Faith community and that makes for an interesting film.  However, anyone who is educated about this sport would have no moral objection to it.  I am a full-time MMA Chaplain much like you would find in every other pro and semi-pro sport.  I interact with MMA athletes and coaches on a daily basis and I can assure you that MMA is about competition, not blood lust, brutality, violence or any of the other nonsense portrayed by the media.  There is next to no ill will or hard feelings between the athletes.  On the contrary, there is an amazing mutual respect that stems from the martial art tradition.  I would love to discuss this further with anyone interested.  You can contact me josh@fightchurch.com

"This just takes things to the next level."

Yes.  Yes it does.  It takes it from delusional to insane.
