Cold Killer

I woke up super sick yesterday, a really yucky cold.  bleh!  But I will not be overcome by congestion!! ;-)

I didn't want sickness to prevent me from getting my credits.

For anyone who is wondering , this is what I do to kick colds to the curb:

Large Ginger 2
Ginger Lemon Cold Killer 

* 3 lemons, quaterted
* 6 inches ginger root cut in inch-size pieces

1. Run the lemons and ginger through a juicer.

2. Use 1 T. of the liquid/1 cup of the hottest water you can drink.  (I use filtered water) (Store the extra liquid in the fridge.)

3. Add enough honey to make it delicious.

This really cuts through mucus and I hate mucus (sorry to say the "m" word).

It's a good idea to drink copious amounts of the tea. Yesterday I drank 2 quarts of this tea.

WARNING: it's VERY strong, so DO NOT drink it with out adding water!!!!

It's cleansing and energizing, which is a little confusing when you are sick. . . "I feel good, but I feel so yucky!" See?  Confusing.


  1. Thank you for the tip, Traci. In the past I've tried a dandelion tea -- it's supposed to be a good for cleansing your insides. It took me a while to get used to the taste but it really did make a difference. By the way, chocolatecoveredkatie is a personal favorite. Do you know about "ohsheglows" and "happyherbivore"?

  2. I can attest to the magic of this drink! It is actually quite yummy with the right amount of honey. :)
