Ginger Lemon Tea

I spent my entire night coughing rolling around on my bed, trying various breathing techniques to see what made my throat less irritated. Needless to say this morning I was in need of some coffee and this delicious beverage.

 

 I love me some ginger! Nothing like outsourcing to natural remedies versus taking shitty cold medicine that is usually filled with carbohydrates and sugar. So, instead of wasting my macros I turned to ginger. Not to mention a hot beverage helps to break down all that nasty built up mucous. So, lets cheers to that and drink up!

 

Ingredients:

·      Pot of water (I probably did 4-6 cups worth)

·      Juice of 1 lemon

·      1 inch ginger root

·      5-7 mint leaves

·      Stevia or Honey to taste (Both optional)

Preparation:

1.     Heat water in pot to boiling

2.     Meanwhile peel and chop ginger into smaller pieces

3.     Turn off heat and add in ingredients

4.     Let steep 10-12 minutes, strain and enjoy

 

Enjoy!
