Lemon Ginger Infused Honey

Lemon, ginger and honey

Christmas trees are up and winter weather is here, but with it come all the sniffles and coughs of cold and flu season. Womp womp. There are many contributing factors to more illnesses, from the colder weather to people being indoors more, which means closer quarters with others and less  immune-boosting vitamin D. During this time it’s important to incorporate foods into our daily diet that keep our bodies strong and healthy: mushrooms for vitamin D, oranges for vitamin C, peas for Zinc. Soups and hot beverages are a great way to stay warm and incorporate these foods in a tasty way. In our house we have a lot more hot tea than hot cocoa during the winter months. Don’t get me wrong, I love the taste of hot chocolate but the processed sugars won’t do you any good. With tea you can add unfiltered honey, ginger and lemon for an immunity booster that tastes delicious! Raw local honey contains pollen from your area and has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. Infusing your honey with lemon and ginger adds antioxidants that help with coughs, fevers, and other symptoms often associated with cold and flu season. I love having a warm cup of herbal tea and honey after dinner! This infused honey also makes a great holiday gift for stocking stuffers, neighbors and teachers.
