The first months of a year very often bring a cold into my life. It’s not the most pleasant of the situations, but it is what it is.
This year, I was trying my best to fight the cold without pills, as naturally as possible. After searching in the deep waters of the internet a little bit, I found this lovely recipe that has been designed especially for fighting the cold or flu.
And it indeed made me feel a lot better.
The beverage is full of vitamin C, it contains raw honey with its antibacterial properties and there a few lovely spices to make you feel beautifully warm inside. It tastes very yummy as well. I highly recommend it.
In case you decide to make this lovely beverage, enjoy!
And stay healthy!
