The ultimate winter pick-me-up

Since it’s January and the most popular month for implementing healthier lifestyles, here’s an easy one for you. It doesn’t take much commitment, is over in about 2 seconds, and makes you feel healthy. What’s not to like? 

Lemon/Ginger shot:

You need:

4 organic lemons (you don’t want any of the nasty stuff – definitely get organic ones)

200g of fresh ginger

2 tablespoons of honey

2 litres of water

Chop the lemon and gingers into chunks, and and combine everything in a pan. Bring to boil, and then let the whole thing simmer for 45min-an hour. And voila! Take a shot of this every day, first thing in the morning, and I promise you’ll feel more awake than any coffee could ever make you. According to Deliciously Ella, the ginger is soothing for the digestive system, and the lemon is great for the immune system and for alkalising – It’ll definitely give you a boost! And, because you get to take this in a shot glass you’ll feel like a bit of a badass from the start of the day. It’s win-win really.
