Flu/Cold Home Remedy

It’s that time of the year, again!

You know the time of year I am referring to, right? The time of year when you make a run to the local “everything” store to buy tissues, vitamin C and whatever will ensure you a good nights sleep.

Ah, yes, now you are with me! The infamous flu season!

I wanted to share with you my “go to” when I start feeling the “dreaded yuck” coming on. Its something that I whip up and share with my family when I hear any moans or groans about someone having a soar throat or a cough.

Ingredients:

  • local honey
  • ginger (fresh or grounded)
  • ground cinnamon

The following instructions are for a single serving…

Pour one cup of apple juice and stir in a pinch (around 1/8 tsp) of ginger and cinnamon.

Heat your yummy concoction on your stove top in a pan or in the microwave in a microwave safe cup.

After the mixture of apple juice, ginger and cinnamon is warm, add a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and honey to your liking.

It tastes like apple cider and is a great way to get more vitamin C in.

I hope you give it a try!
