We’re smack bang in the middle of Winter and (may I assume) have spent the majority of the last month partying and no doubt mistreating our bodies. It’s only natural that we’re probably going to start suffering for it soon… This is my favourite winter remedy to warn off colds and flu.
2 teaspoons of Manuka Honey (ordinary honey will also do)
1 teaspoon of finely cut ginger
300ml of boiling hot water
Add water to kettle and set to boil.
Squeeze half a lemon into a mug Add 2 teaspoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of finely cut ginger. You can add the squeezed lemon remainder into the mug too (just make sure it’s not waxed).
Once boiled, pour hot water over the ingredients in the mug. Stir well.
Find somewhere cosy to sit and enjoy.
The days are shorter, nights longer and we’re starting to crave those good old stodgy home cooked meals… Well, I have something that will brighten up your mornings and satisfy your hot food needs- Pink Wholegrain Berry Porridge!
Not only is it warm, delicious, and looks fab, it will actually keep you full until lunch time and is one of your five a day (as well as being super healthy in itself). Made with a variety of summer berries- think raspberries, blueberries, cherries and cranberries- and whole rolled organic oats, this is one healthy meal to make any cold winter morning more enjoyable. Here’s the recipe below…
1 Handful of Frozen Berries
150-200ml of Milk
100g of Organic Whole Rolled Porridge Oats (click here- these ones are particularly good and not too pricey)
A Drizzle of Honey- optional!
Add oats, berries and 150ml of milk into a pan.
Heat on low-med temperature for 5 minutes, stirring throughout until at preferred consistency and ensuring that the berries are warm. Add more milk midway if required.
Serve into your favourite bowl and add a little honey if you fancy!
