This is a reminder to chew and enjoy your food! It's really step one - the less we overindulge and the more we eat slowly and consciously, the more we can allow our digestion to do its job. But, if you're feeling rushed or end up eating too many types of foods at the workplace potluck, or just want to keep your digestion moving - then a ginger, lemon, honey tea is a helpful sidekick. Ginger Lemon Honey Tea
- 1 inch fresh ginger root, sliced or grated
- Juice of 1 Lemon
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 quart water
Boil ginger and water 10-20 minutes. Once it has cooled to lukewarm, add 1/2 - 1 squeezed lemon, and 1/2-1 teaspoon of honey (honey should never be cooked or added to very hot recipes). Enjoy!
