G is for Garlic Tea

For this post I’m offering a link to a recipe I found in Prevention Magazine a number of years ago and haven’t let out of my sight since.

This is my go-to recipe anytime I have a cough or cold and since I’m still battling the flu, as I was brewing-up a batch, I thought it would be a good time to post it.

What I love is this is simple, soothing and safe for the whole family. No nasty medicine taste or chemicals, just garlic, fresh lemon juice and honey. The recipe makes 4 cups of which you warm and sip 1/2 cup 3 times a day.  Usually, unless I’m battling a really tough bug, one batch will be enough.

I hope, in the case you ever need it, you find it as soothing and healing as I do.
