It’s about time for the detoxing to start. You ate too much. You probably ate some things that you shouldn’t have, just because it was the holidays. You probably had more than one serving that famous pie your grandma makes. And now, your feeling the pain! Ginger to the rescue!
This is very easy. Just take a medium piece or knob of ginger and slice it into rounds. Place it in a 3 quart pot along with the zest of one orange. You can grate it or use a knife to carefully peel away the orange part of the peel only. If you think the pith is bitter, it only intensifies when you boil it! It will make your whole pot of tea unpleasant.
Add 3-4 cups of water to the pot, bring to a rolling boiling, then reduce to a simmer. Let it simmer until it starts to make the whole kitchen smell like ginger, about 15-20 mins.
Strain into tea mugs and add your favorite sweetener to taste. I use a combination of vegetable glycerin and stevia. If you can have agave, use it. It sweetens drinks very well and you don’t need to use alot of it.
