I have a recurring cold! Achooo!!
Credit goes to the cold weather that is here to stay for quite some time. Whenever I get cold I remember the list of things I need to take care of : Vitamin C, zinc supplements , drink lots of water and most important to keep WARM!
Apart from the above mentioned things, another thing that I find comfortable during these cold months is a hot cup of honey-lemon-ginger water in the morning.
Add grated ginger in hot water along with lemon juice and honey and your morning “tea” is ready! Once you get used to this morning routine it is hard to go back. This warm water not only helps in releasing congestion but the ginger in it also helps in digestion and honey soothes the throat.
Throw in a black tea bag in the liquid and you have a rich lemony black tea in less than five minutes.
(There are no accurate measurements for this recipe just add little or more as per your taste and preference.)
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
2 Tbsp Honey
3/4 Cup hot water
1/2 Inch Ginger Root (grated)
1. Grate ginger in hot water and strain the water.
2. Add honey and lemon juice in hot water. Cut a slice of lemon into the cup to get lemony flavor in every sip.
