Aunt Linda here. I am keeping it very simple today. The “little grey cells” are not at their best while my body fights off a cold, and so I have shelved what I had planned for today’s post. We are going with the “less is more” approach to colds – and life.
Honey bees give us so much – lemons and honey are just two.
So todays recipe is simple: heat water to almost boiling. Find a favorite cup. Squeeze in as much lemon juice as you would like. Add honey. This is soothing for the throat – and the raw honey and lemon juice seem to have alkalizing properties for the body. Interestingly, I have read that processed honey will make your body more acidic.
I added some honey comb, but that is just because I had it on hand. Use whatever honey you have. It occurred to me that the wax just might “exfoliate” the throat. But that is nothing more than a hunch.
In that vein, I added some salted pistachios to further “exfoliate” my throat – I felt like the magic of honey and lemon might work better.
Until Next time!
