Here are two of the recipes that let you survive my day of sickness:
Gold Wellness Drink
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 a lemon, chopped in half
1+ tsp fresh grated ginger
1 pint hot water
...once tea is cool enough to drink, add:
1 teaspoon + honey
(if just making a cup, halve this recipe)
Broth of Life Soup
6 stalks celery
1 bunch swiss chard
2 beets + greens
1 bunch of fresh parsley
1 bunch of fresh thyme
2 inches of fresh ginger, sliced
5 large cloves of garlic
small piece of kombu(seaweed)
water to cover
--simmer above ingredients covered for 2 hours--
strain & save. Drink as you like to keep you breathing. (Honestly, it's great for congestion)
For a meal if you have the appetite, cook 1/4 c of basmati rice in 3 cups broth.
If you've had too much ginger tea and you're starting to overheat, top your broth with chopped cilantro.
Make our illnesses be our greatest teachers-- and may we not forget their lessons!
To a winter of wellness!
