When winter comes along and cold and flu season is at its prime, catching the occasional sniffle is pretty inevitable. But ginger is an essential part of a cold-fighting remedy that you’ll actually enjoy drinking. All you have to do is slice up some fresh ginger and add it to a pot of water on the stove. Bring it to a boil, then strain the hot, gingery water into a mug. Finish by squeezing in the juice of half a lemon and stirring in a dollop of honey, then enjoy.
Something about the mixture can soothe flu symptoms and even nip an oncoming cold in the bud by drinking it regularly. Ginger is the hero we all need, especially this month when it will also save you some cash on your upcoming renewals.
