Honey-sweetened lemonade, a fantastic drink and my biggest ally in the fight against the cold and flu
It seems that I have become such an easy pray for cold and flu; from catching one once or twice a year only, I have somehow managed to be unwell almost every month lately. I do admit that I am guilty though,as sometimes I do not have regular meals and don’t drink enough water, so that means that my immune system is quite down and desperately needs a helping hand to get back on track.
So, it is high time I put into action a plan to fight the evil cold that brings me down. And what’s better than a home-made honey-sweetened lemonade? I don’t really take medicines, but this drink is by far the best medicine ever. Lemons are a great source of vitamin C, which is known to boost the immune system, amongst many other health benefits. And honey has been known for centuries as having excellent medicinal value. Do not spoil the magical power of the lemonade by adding refined sugar, honey is the best alternative possible.
I like to drink this lemonade at room temperature, but, of course, it is also great ice-cold or hot. A healthy, hydrating, refreshing and delicious drink that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Yummy!
