A doozy of a cold hit our house this week. I've been following my usual protocol of lots of rest, lots of water and extra immune boosting foods...raw garlic, mushrooms and soups made with bone broth. I add apple cider vinegar to my water, take extra vitamin D and a good probiotic. Also, my NeilMed continues to be a lifesaver during times like these. And I drink A LOT of ginger tea. Instead of grating ginger on the microplane for each cup like I used to, I've gotten smarter and make ginger juice in bulk in my Vitamix blender.
Slice enough ginger to fill 1 cup. Add to the blender with 2 cups water and blend thoroughly. Strain through a nut milk bag (a fine mesh nylon one like this) and store in the fridge.
To make tea:
Add a Tbsp or two your mug, juice from half a lemon (a pinch of cayenne is optional) and top with hot water. Add honey to taste.
