This past week in Houston, the weather has proved to us that it has a mind of it's own. One day the sun shinning bright over the city, and the next day it's the perfect weather to stay in and watch movies; dark, muggy, and cold. These sporadic shifts heightened my worries about catching an illness in the midst of my body having to adjust on a daily basis. With that being said, this week I thought it would be a good idea to talk about a home remedy that will keep you up and running this season!
Ginger, Honey, and Cinnamon
These three ingredients added into your favorite teas will fight away any germs that are floating around in your body! Ginger instantly warms up your body by stimulating blood circulation which keeps all of your organs healthily running, while honey and cinnamon are some of the the worlds most potent antioxidants that fight against the bacteria that could cause the common cold and they soothe a sore throat. Of course, you could add one or more of these ingredients in your warm beverage to your own liking, but I enjoy keeping a mixture handy for those days that I might feel ill. Just take a mason jar and fill it up about halfway with honey (it's always best to get locally made, organic honey. It's the most powerful, and tastes better!), add a tablespoon or two of fresh mashed ginger, and put in a stick of cinnamon. Mix everything together and let it sit overnight. Now, you can add a teaspoon of this mixture to any tea and stay healthy this winter! Enjoy!
