‘Blessings In Disguise’
As much as I dreaded seeing my kids unwell, not to mention the hard work that comes with it, on a more positive note, I realised that this could be an opportunity for us as parents to take time out to provide them with undivided attention. So, my ‘big girl’ is now on day 2 of her flu. What a better way than to distract her with some board games while nourishing her with freshly grated Ginger, lemon and honey tea to help calm her stomach discomforts and boost her immune system. See recipe below.
Ginger has been used by eastern medicine to calm stomach discomfort which seems to be going around this winter season.
Freshly Grated Ginger, lemon and honey tea. 1 cup of boiling water, grate 1 inch of ginger, juice of 1/4 or wedge of lemon, and 1 tsp honey. Let it seep for a few minutes and enjoy. The spiciness in the ginger will also help clear sinuses. Adjust the amount of ginger according to your own preference to how strong you want it to be. I like mine really strong. Stay healthy or recover soon.
