One Good Thing A Day – Project Day 35 – Ginger Lemon Goodness When You’re Under the Weather
I woke up feeling great this morning. The sun was shining bright, our little birds were chirping away and I went out to teach my little ones -and they were all unbelievably great!
On the way home…… wasn’t as great and I started to feel as bit off……with sneezes and sniffles (>_<)When I got home, it was time to make a pot full of ginger goodness that always helps when I feel a little under the weather. Not only is this drink a great antioxidant but it's also an excellent source of Vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, potassium, Vitamin B6, copper and manganese and the list goes on!
You will need:
A large fresh ginger root
Dried lemongrass (as much as you like)
Optional: Cinnamon stick or powder
Fill a pot with water.
Slice the entire ginger root and place in the pot with the dried lemongrass.
Boil covered for 10-15 minutes.
Pour into a mug and add lemon juice and honey. Enjoy!
* If you would like the cinnamon version, add the cinnamon sticks or powder instead of lemongrass and boil for the same amount of time.
