Sniff! Sniff! Cough! Cough!

I'm surrounded by sniffling, coughing toddlers! Of course it would happen right before Thanksgiving. Nanda's got a mild ear infection and a cold and Ian has a cold with that hacking cough. Our doctor says no-no to over the counter medication though so I turned to my mom for a home remedy she used to give us when we were young.

2 Lemons
2 Garlic cloves
4 tsp of honey
Fresh Ginger (small nickel size piece)

Squeeze out the lemon juice into a small saute pan and add the rest of the ingridients. Stir over low flame, as soon as it starts to bubble take off heat.
From this syrupy mix drink a tablespoon every two hours, it must be warm when taken.

Miranda is really good about taking medicine however, Ian is a different story!

Here's another one I got from a fellow twitter:
Very similar as above but it's a tea. Surprisingly, Mr. Ian actually like this one alot!

Fresh Ginger

I squeezed the lemon into water and added some lemon peel for more taste along with a nickel sized piece of ginger. Once it boiled I strained it and added honey.

It's delicious and it soothes your throat from coughing so much.

Thanks Herbanlifestyle!!
