Ok, Ginger Root is my jam!
I love the flavor it adds, the spice it brings and the heat I feel in my belly from it. I love to throw in ginger to spice up a dish, or my favorite, to liven up fresh-pressed juice. The spicier, the better. When we were on lock down here in Ontario I needed a pick me up, so I made some ginger pineapple shots with cinnamon. They were so spicy that they gave my partner-in-crime the hiccups. He always gets hiccups from spicy food (I had a good laugh). They were so tasty and just what we needed. So when I came across the idea to boil fresh ginger and make a tea out of it, I knew it would be a big win. Three simple and clean ingredients: ginger root, lemon and honey, all with amazing qualities that I love.
So many benefits...
Let’s start with my fave, ginger; germs be gone! Ginger has a certain chemical that helps fight off germs like e.coli and shigella. Upset tummies - ginger to the rescue! Its magic powers help you to overcome nausea. Don’t forget, it’s an anti-inflammatory, baby! I could go on and on about ginger, so many great qualities. With the added benefits of lemon cleansing your organs and powerful antioxidants in honey, this tea is a powerhouse. Don’t take my word for it, try it for yourself!
Here it is.
