This is an easy one to keep in your repertoire of stay-well goodies as the seasons change.
Stay Well Tonic
- 1 TB Cider Vinegar (*I do raw, the unpasturized one, but any will do)
- 1 TB Honey (*can be raw or regular, just make sure its real honey, there have been reports about some honey not actually being honey lately, but mixed with corn syrup, etc)
- a few strong shakes of cayenne pepper
- 1 lemon, juiced.
Mix it all up in a mug and add near-boiling water.
If you are a fan of drinking hot water and lemon in the morning, this is a nice switch that harkens back to the master cleanse but with much more potent kick of the apple cider vinegar. Surprisingly, though, I find it very drinkable.
Tip: if you drink it slowly, keep a spoon nearby to keep stirring or your last sips with be all cayenne pepper!
Every time I drink it, especially if I feel allergic or a sore throat, I feel 100% better!!! I hope you do, too! Enjoy! xoxo Dana
