I'm on the mend, most of this insidious flu/cold is all but disappeared, only a bit of a cough left. I can't believe that this virus is taking residence in my body for going on the second week. After all I've been only feeding it good old healthy stuff, like drinking ginger tea and eating hot homemade soup. Surely it has enough of the healthy stuff by now and is disparate to leave my body.
Ginger Tea Recipe (Let sit for 10 minutes)
I feel the warm liquid slide down my throat momentarily coating and soothing it. How many cups of this have I drank in the last week? Too numerous to count.
Yesterday, I decided to make some vegetable soup. As I was cutting the vegetables I decided to make it a carrot ginger soup. I do love ginger! Then, I decided to make it hot and added some hot peppers from the garden. My intent was to sweat out the last of the cold virus if possible.
