Ginger and Green Tea with Honey

Feeling a head cold coming on? Bolster your immune system with this natural, healthy drink.


1/2-inch chunk of raw ginger root, peeled and grated fine
1 single-serving green tea bag (I highly recommend Tazo by Starbucks)
1/2 tsp. honey
Boiling filtered water


Wash, peel and fine-grate the ginger. Place in a cup with the tea bag. Pour boiling water into cup and let steep for 4 minutes, then strain.

Add the honey and mix to incorporate. Drink while hot. Repeat as needed.

I usually combine this with a chunk of raw garlic chewed immediately after. I also add 1,000mg of Vitamin-C to my regimen if I feel a really bad cold coming on. Concerning the garlic, you probably won’t earn any points with your spouse, but it beats getting sick!
