I’m stuck inside with the flu, so I won’t be posting much this week. Too sleepy. But I thought I’d share this recipe with you. A good friend of mine stopped by yesterday and made me a big pot of lemon ginger tea with electrolytes! That’s what you get when your good friend is a good cook, a nursing student, and has spent some time in India. This tea is delicious, and it has antiviral properties because of the lemon and ginger. Stay healthy, and if you find yourself with the flu, make this or have a friend make it for you. Drink a lot of it. It’ll help. xo, m
Lemon Ginger Tea
Note: If you find that the flavor’s too strong, add more water to dilute it. I appreciated that it was strong and flavorful because the flu dulls your sense of taste and smell.
1-2 quarts of water (Janna filled up a big soup pot of mine)
Juice of 1 lemon or 1/2 of a big container of lemon juice
1-2 inches of ginger, skin taken off, chopped coarsely
1/4 cup honey or agave syrup
2 packets of Propel enhanced water mix (Janna got the lemon flavored. You can get it at drugstores.)
1 caffeinated tea bag. We used black tea. A little caffeine helps alleviate headaches.
Put everything in a pot, and boil. Drink a lot of this!
