Recently, I’ve been drinking hot water with lemon & fresh ginger every morning. And I love it. And you may love it too. This is what I do if you want to try it.
Use paring knife to peel back the skin of the ginger (it comes off easily).
Slice ginger thinly (but it doesn’t really matter!).
Cut a small lemon in half. Squeeze into large mug.
Add ginger slices to the mug (to taste).
I always think more is better. I’ve become mildly obsessed with ginger. Calms your stomach, reduces stress and lemon is a natural anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety. Great if you’re trying to fit into something tight later that evening. Or if you’re heading to the beach. Or if you’re really into your well-being. Just positive vibes with the lemon ginger.
Add boiling hot water. Let sit/steep for a few minutes.
Drink! Do this first thing in the morning, the lemon is great to get your day going. .
