Feeling like you’re coming down with a cold? Our LEMON GINGER HONEY TEA will help you feel better.

There’s nothing worse than feeling like you’re coming down with what’s sure to be a nasty cold. Symptoms include: runny or stuffy nose, an itchy or sore throat, cough, congestion, sneezing, watery eyes and sometimes a low-grade fever. Who needs it?!

Whenever you feel a cold or flu coming on, try making this LEMON GINGER HONEY TEA – I guarantee it’ll make you feel a whole lot better.

Here’s why it works:

LOOKS GOOD

All of the ingredients used in this hot drink are good for you. The fresh GINGER is loaded with antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-parasitic properties. It can also help reduce chest pain and coughing.

Fresh THYME leaves are a rich source of vitamins and minerals, considered essential for optimum health, including, potassium, iron, calcium, manganese, magnesium, and selenium.

LEMON & HONEY

It seems that lemons and honey have been joining forces to fight colds and flu for a very long time. LEMONS are rich in vitamin C and flavonoids that work together against flu and cold infections.

Raw organic HONEY (honey that hasn’t been pasteurized, clarified, or filtered) contains two key ingredients: bee pollen and propolis, which has antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

MAKE IT WORK!

Allow the tea to steep for five minutes before serving, and always stir the contents each time before you pour. The other really important thing is to drink the while it’s hot for optimum benefit.

Sometimes it might take a few days for the benefits of this soothing beverage to kick in. Try to prepare and enjoy at least two to three times each day until cold and flu symptoms subside.

GIMME A BOOST

The last suggestion about this wonderful tonic is a recommendation to peel and eat a small mandarin or clementine while the LEMON GINGER HONEY TEA steeps. I like to think that the hit of citrus wakes up the tastebuds while also sending a welcome message to your brain and body – you might feel yucky, but help is on the way!

Almost forgot! Sometimes homemade cookies can make you feel better too! Try these CHERRY ORANGE OAT COOKIES or these OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIPS.

A remarkably soothing, fresh-prepared hot beverage, packed with healing, restorative properties, the LEMON GINGER HONEY TEA is just what he doctor (would have) ordered!

This recipe is offered as a possible way of alleviating cold and flu symptoms. As always, speak with a licensed physician about your health and well-being.
