Garlic Lemon Broth
Whenever I feel a little under the weather, I always make garlic lemon broth. And today, I definitely feel under the weather. Everywhere I go, people are coughing, sneezing and looking ill. Some of it is partly because of the flu season, but indulging in rich food, cocktails and lacking rest also puts havoc on our immune system.
Garlic lemon broth is one way to get a little boost from mother nature and it is good for our bodies. For me, I love hot broths because they are flavourful, comforting, hydrating and packed with healthy nutrients.
In this garlic lemon broth I used fresh ingredients such as garlic, lemon, turmeric, cinnamon and fresh herbs because of their antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. The one ingredient I did not add, which is excellent if you have an upset stomach, is freshly minced ginger. Feel free to add a teaspoon or two of freshly minced ginger if your tummy is acting up.
Ordinarily, I drink this broth for 24 hours, and I feel so much better and with loads of energy. Unfortunately, today I don’t feel that great, so I will pamper myself for 48 hours.
Getting plenty of rest is essential when we feel run down. This allows our bodies to re-charge and energize. If you feel under the weather check out our gluten-free recipes with immune boosting properties, and I hope you start feeling better very soon!
