“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates
When I am feeling under the weather, I double up on these nutritious and delicious recipes.
1 c coconut milk
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 pinch black pepper
1 tsp local, raw honey
Mix milk with spices in a small saucepan and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until fragrant. Pour through a fine sieve into a mug and stir in the honey, if using. Drink while hot!
And drink lots of water, and get out in the sun!
