It's really hot and I have a cold - WTF? I need Vitamin C and I need refreshing. We have a heap of lemons and some mint in the garden....
Lemonade from Feel Good Food by Mim Beim & Gul McCarty
4 cups water
juice of 4 lemons
2 tablespoons of honey (raw/cold pressed if you've got it)
handful mint leaves
Pour water and lemon juice into a jug and stir well. Add honey and stir until dissolved. Add more water or more honey to taste.
Add mint leaves and refrigerate for 2 hours or until thoroughly chilled. Drink with ice!
The book also suggests I need to eat chicken soup, lots of garlic and ginger, chilli, carrots, cabbage, broccoli, parsley, basil, onions, miso, oranges, thyme, cloves, cinnamon, more raw honey, nasturtiums (!) and 3 litres of fluid daily (water, tea or soup)!!
I'll get back to you.
