Here’s a Shot of Sunshine (with Cheese on the Side)

Last week we talked about Green; this week the topic is Yellow. Yes, colorful conversations from The Country Cupboard!

So why Yellow? I don’t know about you, but for me sunshine, daffodils, canaries and cheese remind me of spring, hope, and happiness. We’ve seen a lot of sunshine lately; we’re looking forward to daffodils. And canaries? Well, check out the Singing Canary variation recipe below. I was a bit skeptical, but I found it delicious and energizing.

Adrenal Fatigue Tonic – A Singing Canary Variation

1 quart, 5 minutes

When we are stressed, we wear out our adrenals. Therefore, we often feel exhausted, but can’t sleep. This is yummy powerful drink to help your body support its adrenals and give you some energy. It’s easy and delicious. You can read all the benefits here.


– 1-2 lemons, peeled
– 1½ cups filtered water, plus more for the jar
– ½ to 1 teaspoon turmeric*
–  ½ teaspoon extra-virgin coconut oil*
– 1 teaspoon protein powder or collagen*
½ tsp vanilla extract*
– 2 generous pinches salt*
– ½ tsp cinnamon*
-1/4 tsp ginger*
-1/4 tsp nutmeg*
-pinch clove*
– ¼ tsp stevia extract*
– 2,000 mg vitamin C powder*
– Ice cubes

*Ingredients available at The Country Cupboard.

  1. Peel the rind off the lemons using a sharp knife. Leave as much of the white pith as possible as it has loads of nutritional benefits. If using organic lemons, use the whole lemon.
  2. Slice each lemon into quarters. Remove the seeds, and place the lemon pieces into your blender. Add water and all of the remaining ingredients besides the ice cubes. Blend well.
  3. Place the blended mixture into a quart jar. Add ice cubes and more water to fill the jar to the top. Put a tight lid on the jar and shake before drinking.

Tip: You might find that the drink is still a little too “bitter” due to the turmeric. Start with ½ tsp of turmeric and increase from there if desired. After making the drink, if you find it to be too bitter, you can add more stevia and/or vanilla to taste.
