March 7, 2013

remove from heat
pour into a mug
add lemon juice and a little miso

if it tastes like the best thing in the world, chances are i’m coming down with a cold.

medicinal in a number of ways:
– cayenne has more vitamin c than lemon, and the two of them build the immune system!
– garlic, ginger, and oregano are anti-microbial, and beat out the invading microbes before they have a chance to turn you into their playground!
– miso is probiotic, which means that it is living food (the opposite of antibiotic!) and the microbes in it help strengthen your microbial defense against the invading cold or flu!

this is a hearty and tough winter version of sick-tea.
