La regola delle tre “L”

I feel a bit under the weather these days! 😦

With this in mind I thought about “mia nonna” who liked to share and dispense her pearls of wisdom with her family. Like every Italian nonna, mine was also a very wise and practical woman, when I had a touch of cold or flu, her advice was la regola delle tre “L” ie

“Lana, Letto, Latte”!

“Lana” to keep myself warm,

                                      “Letto” stay in bed to rest and recover

                                                                                “Latte” to drink fluids and keep hydrated…

…and that’s what I’m going to do!

Have you ever heard of this golden rule before!? Does anyone else have a secret family cure for the flu!?
