Ginger Tea To The Rescue
Being sick sucks. This week I was knocked out hard. Soar throat, tired, stiff, you name it and I had it. At one point I was driving through a parking lot and thought the cars were moving. Yeah, I was sick. Worse of all Bug has a bit of a cough. The doctor said she looks like we caught it early, but to watch out for walking pneumonia, which is going around. Great.
So as I sit here, coughing and wallowing in my own self pity, thinking about what should I do when I realized that I have a really awesome excuse to make my favorite sick time remedy: ginger tea. Now we aren’t talking about the stuff from the bag. Fresh ginger tea is so simple to make.
First peel some ginger.
Than cut off a few slices. About 3-4 if you want it mild 5-7 for a bit stronger.
Boil the tea and add in the slices. Boil for about 3 minutes. The water should appear a slight yellow color.
Pour yourself a glass, add a bit of honey, and kick your cold in the ass.
What do you do when you are sick?
