Fresh Juices & Ginger Chai

leave a comment »

Illness is the theme of the month.

The fevers have receded, thankfully. But not the body-wracking cough, which brings with it unmitigated weariness: unintended exercise, and interrupted sleep.

It’s a few days (and nights) of this before I remind myself that medication’s my friend. Cough suppressants, antihistamines, and a continuous volume of water.

Oh, and juice – fresh, thanks to a recently acquired juicer.

Growing Ginger at Home

It’s amazing how invigorating a fresh glass of juice – without reconstitution, preservation, or flavor additives can taste.

Also? Ginger, added to chai, is a reminder that my grandmother was right: ginger tea for any upper respiratory ailment. It soothes the throat, and I swear it thins out the gunk trying to set up camp there.
