Ward off Colds and Flu with "The Lemonade"

Mom:  They're saying this is the worst cold and flu season in 10 years.
Angelique:  To which we replied, "Good thing we've got our lemonade."
Mom:  You've heard of it.  Lemons, cayenne pepper and maple syrup also known as the Lemonade Diet.
Angelique:  You know that thing Beyonce did to lose weight for Dreamgirls.
Mom:  But what Hollywood didn't tell you is that the Lemonade Diet is way better at fighting colds, flu and illness than it is at keeping you thin.  And you don't have to fast for 10 days to see the benefits.
Angelique:  During the winter, we always keep a gallon of it made.  Instead of OJ in the morning, we grab a hot or cold glass of lemonade.  And then another at bed time.   Now ask mom how many times she's had the flu in the past 20 years.  Ask her.
Mom:  3 times!  That cayenne pepper will literally knock the snot right out of you.
Angelique:  That is so nasty Ma.  But it's true. It also revs up the the metabolism.
Mom:  Just make sure you invest in the good stuff.  Go to the local health food store and get the loose cayenne pepper that is 90 HU (90,000 Heat Units). 
Angelique:   We promise if you buy the right cayenne and follow the recipe, it will prevent colds and flu.
Mom:  And if you already have one coming on, it will slow it down and speed up your recovery.
Angelique:  The recipe is listed below, but to really understand how it works get the book.  It's called The Master Cleanse  and you can get it for 4 to 6 bucks.
Mom:  Stay healthy, drink lots of water, wash your hands often, and keep your hands out of your face!
Angelique:  And drink your lemonade!
