In the midst of a deep freeze, we need warming. Bored and unsatisfied with the standard tea, coffee, hot chocolate options, I crave a more nourishing and soothing thermal beverage. First, it’s time to resurrect my juicer. Gather organic apples, lemons, ginger, and raw honey. Juice 2 apples, 1/2 lemon, and a half of a thumb of ginger. Dissolve a dime size dollop of raw honey in hot water. Add honeyed hot water to juice to create a steamy, soothing, fruity comforting wintertime drink. This concoction eases the sting of sore throats, provides a substantial kick of antioxidant immunity boost, and is deeply, deliciously, snug. Ginger is an anti-microbial and steaming the root unlocks its decongestant properties. Honey coats the throat, and lemon and apple provide vitamin C. It’s worth the trouble if you are feeling low.
