Morning Elixir

lamai

I woke up this morning with a scratchy throat and a runny nose.  Not fun!  When this happens, I reach for my go-to morning elixir.  Super easy and excellent results!

Take the largest glass that you have and add the following:

  • juice from 1 or 2 organic lemons
  • cold water (fill to half)
  • boiled water that has cooled a little (fill the remaining half)
  • 1 teaspoon unpasteurized honey
  • 1 teaspoon Vitamin C crystals (1000mg), optional

Drink this fairly quickly, while it is still warm.  Drink another glass of warm water soon after.

I usually start to feel quite warm and often I start to sweat.  I get back in to bed and stay as warm as possible for about 30 minutes…or more, if you can.  At this point, I feel much, much better and continue with my day.

Of course, I ensure that I am drinking a lot of water, eating mostly fresh fruits and vegetables the rest of the day.  I will often repeat this drink later in the day.
