Good for what ails you

In this season of cold (both sickness and temperature wise), there is something comforting about a hot drink.  Normally I prefer coffee as my hot drink of choice, but at night, when I'm not feeling well, I make this drink instead:


1 tsp ginger paste (or fresh ginger but this tube is so convenient)
1 tsp honey
2 tsp lemon juice (fresh is best)
Boiling water to fill your mug

(these are estimates, I never measure, just squeeze it all into the mug and stir, this is not science)

This is good for an upset stomach, a sore throat and stuffy nose, or if you just need some warming up.        It's also great if you need a little something after supper but you don't need a whole snack.

Keep warm out there!

  1. I have never heard of ginger paste. What section did you find it in at the store? I usually just slice ginger pieces but maybe a paste would work better. Stay well!

    1. Our ginger paste is found in the produce section by the herbs. They also have basil, cilantro, garlic, parsley and lemongrass. So great to have on hand when you only need a bit and you don't want to buy the whole bunch of the herb.
