I have been known to occasionally make a warm "tea" of an evening. I've written about it before here. I used to call it "Creamy Turmeric Tea." I find that it has another name: "Golden Milk."
More often lately, I've been making what my husband calls my "crazy juice." It's a recipe called Good Girl Moonshine by Trim Healthy Mama here.
The main ingredients are vinegar and ginger. These are excellent anti-inflammatory tonics for the body.
I shared the recipe with some friends who have painful medical conditions such as fibromyalgia. They suggested I add turmeric and black pepper. These are synergistic, which means the ingredients help each other work better.
The vinegar, ginger, and pepper give this drink lots of Zing!
Here's how I make my drink:
I get out a clean, dry spaghetti sauce jar. This is the right size for my version of the recipe.
First, I add 1/8 teaspoon of stevia because that's the last thing I want to forget.
I put a few shakes of black pepper, about 1/8 teaspoon, onto a piece of paper. I roll the paper so it's "sort of" folded in half, then tap that into the jar.
I also add one capsule of turmeric and three capsules of powdered ginger.
I found that pouring vinegar into a 1.5 Tablespoon measure is really messy, but a certain shot glass measures 1.5 Tablespoons to the lower line. I add the vinegar to the jar.
I add a little water, swirl around to stir, fill with ice, and add water almost to the top.
I drink it with a straw, stirring before each sip.
I make a jar in the morning to take with me to work, then I make another jar to sip during supper and beyond.
I highly recommend this drink.
I have yet to determine if it will help me lose weight.
