Morning Ginger Drink

I found this morning drink a few weeks ago and it is a variation of something I already do. I have a weird nasal thing going on this year (started after my dental surgery) and this seems to help quite a bit. I actually can breathe through my nose when I get up in the morning! That is BIG!

This was found on Young and Raw

1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp ginger juice
1 tbsp grade b maple syrup or Agave (optional)
*Pinch of cinnamon
Half cup of hot water
Add a tiny bit of room temp water to cool it down

 * I have been using Turmeric in place of cinnamon to help with inflammation

Juice your ginger by running it through a slow or cold press juicer. If you don’t have a juicer that will properly juice ginger or small roots, then you can slice a large knuckle of ginger and boil it on the stove with 1 cup water. Boil it down until the water is mostly ginger, and then store it in a jar in the fridge.

Prepare and drink BEFORE you have your green juice or other breakfast.
