First Daily Ritual: Meditation and Tea

"This is how I optimally start each day... Ginger steeps and releases Vit C, magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese. It is traditionally used to relieve gastrointestinal issues like gas and nausea. It is a super food because of it's high antioxidant content, anti-inflammatory properties, helping to reduce your risk of cancer, and promoting sweating (hello toxin removal!) thereby enhancing your immune system naturally... Lemons are a great source of thiamin, riboflavin, patothenic acid, iron, magnesium, Vit C, B6, calcium, potassium, and copper. Their high Vit C content will help relieve more inflammatory conditions, and reduce risk of cancer. Add peace and quiet, maybe a few deep breathes (see note) and enjoy!"

directions

  • Boil water, add freshly cut ginger root (it is best to peel the outer layer).
  • Turn off heat, let steep 5 minutes.
  • Pour into your favorite coffee cup (it's psychological :) Add juice of 1/2 a lemon, a little less if you are not used to having lemon at all.
  • I sprinkled in some bee pollen here for a boost of B Vit's first thing in the morning.

    What a lovely way to start the day! Who would have thought that you could make tea without tea leaves/bags. I love this combination. It is so fresh tasting and you can feel how healthy it is. I sipped this tea, sat in a darkened room and meditated for about 10 minutes (you said to refer to a note @ meditating, but I didn't see one). I felt refreshed, calm and ready to start my day. My morning run felt great, too. I love that you posted all the health benefits. Thank you so much for posting! Made for the Spring Pick-A-Chef event in the contests/events forum.
