After I went home to be with my Mom, on the way back I crashed at my good friend's place overnight before my flight the next morning. We had a quick breakfast when we woke up and she shared a simple drink with me that I call "the magic potion".
Why? Because with only three ingredients, this stuff is awesome! Yesterday I started feeling like I swallowed a very angry kitten, and it was trying really hard to come back out. My throat was on fire. So I decided to drink some "magic potion". I immediately felt better and slept like a baby.
So what is this stuff? Well, it really is easy:
All you need is some ginger, lemon and honey. I cut about 1/4 of an inch, slice it, add a circle of lemon and steep it all in a cup of boiling water for five to ten minutes. You don't need to peel the ginger. I then strain the concoction and squeeze the lemon in the cup. Now add some honey (about 1 tsp.), preferably the real stuff, and not the one you get in the teddy bear bottle from Walmart...
This "tea" is amazing, people! I have been drinking it on and off ever since I came back home, and I haven't had a cold since before the New Year. I had another cup this morning and was full of energy despite the scratchy throat. This drink is awesome to prevent or shorten colds because it's full of antioxidants and great for your immune system. The word of caution: do not add honey to the boiling water because heat destroys the nutrients in it. Use it only when a tea cooled down enough to drink it.
I've shared it with many people and I thought I would tell you about it :) Maybe, somebody will find it useful :) It doesn't mean that you will never get sick but it does help you to feel better sooner and gives energy when you feel icky.
Have you ever tried"the magic potion"?
