Winter is fast approaching and along with it comes a bevy of colds, virus and nasty bugs!
Sure you can head out to the local drug store and load up on packets, and sprays, sprinkles and pills. Spend a bunch of money on things you are not really sure work, or if you even want them in your body.
When a friend tells me about a 100 year old family recipe her great great granny used in Russia every winter to stay well and healthy….I AM LISTENING!!!
These are the tried and true family cures that I really have learned to trust. They work, they have worked for years and years and the best part they are ALL NATURAL! Made from items in your fridge and pantry.
What you will need:
RAW Local Honey
Lemon rind (2 med lemons)
Alright guys so before I spill the secret here can I just take a quick second to say how FREAKING AHHHHHHMAZING this honey is! My friend that told me of this winter cure also brought me fresh Raw local honey from her fathers bee hives. First taste and I literally stopped all I was doing to close my eyes and focus on the taste. I licked the spoon and tasted fresh air, summer flowers, wet earth and all that nature offers. It truly was something I have never experienced before and I am super excited to have had the opportunity to taste it.
Back to how you can make this remedy.
Take equal parts of each. i eyeballed it and did about 2 -3 tbsp of each.
You want the lemon rind of the 2 lemons, peeled ginger, the fresh cranberries and the honey. I put the ginger, lemon and berries in to blend up first and then added the honey and blended again.
It will look like this.
I added the rest of the juice from one of the lemons to the mix. Then added one heaping tablespoon to my water bottle. You can take it as you like for the benefits but it seems that addidng to water is easy and helps you stay hydrated too! Not to mention that ginger has one HECK OF A KICK!!!!
I stored the extra in a tuppaware and put in fridge for next time I fill my water bottle!
It is a very refreshing taste and approach to staying well all through the winter!
