Do you ever wake up in the morning feeling fine but then within a few minutes start to feel like you are a little run down?
As the hours go by you realize you are getting sick. Then you desperately start to think of ways to overcome the impending doom…
When I have days like that I start to feel sorry for myself and want to just eat comfort foods. Today I woke up with a cold and before lunch I caught myself thinking of foods I could eat to help me feel better. Then I remembered Ginger Tea.
Recently I discovered super tasty Ginger Tea. It is a simple nourishing tea that is easy to make and tastes great.
I love that it can help me overcome my illness due to its ability to boost and support immunity.
1 tbsp peeled and finely grated ginger
1 lemon freshly squeezed
1 tsp Baobab powder
Raw honey to taste- I like mine sweet
6-8 oz hot water
Put all the ingredients in a mug and let stand for a few minutes to steep.
Why make Ginger tea?
Ginger is a food powerhouse with well known health benefits.
Ginger is known to help with arthritis, migraines, colds and flu, nausea, ear infections, inflammation, stomach bugs and more. I make tea out of it when I feel like I am getting sick because it can boost immunity.
Lemon can bring a lot of health benefits too. It can soothe respiratory disorders, it is cleansing, and can boost overall health.
Baobab is one of my favorite supplements. It is one of the most powerful antioxidants and it it packed with vitamins and minerals. I add it to my tea because I enjoy the extra immune boosting benefits as well as the kick of flavor it gives to my tea.
This is the brand I use because I can find it local.
I drank my tea today because I knew I needed extra immune support. It won’t cure a cold in an instant but I plan to keep drinking it to give my body all the help I can while I fight this bug. I love how good it tastes, and that it is a simple comforting warm drink.
Like always, talk to your doctor before taking any new health supplements. Don’t just take my word for it, do you own due diligence.
