Cleanse for Thanksgiving Day food hangovers!

We all love it, do it and regret it! Ahh, Thanksgiving dinner, it is simply the best holiday.  You know the drill, preparing all day for your families favorite dishes, setting the table and blasting through the first plate so you can have room for seconds before your stomach has even digested the first.So now that we’re on the other side of Thanksgiving, it’s cleanse time. This is a little recipe I first had in Botswana and adapted for home.  Give it a try, it’s tasty and healthy.

Ginger Lemonade Cleanse

1 ginger root

1 8 quart pot of water

2 whole lemons

1/4 cup of honey

Peal and cut the ginger into small pieces.  Place in pot of water and bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes. Pour through a mesh strainer, add the juice of 2 lemons and honey.  Pour into a pitcher, add ice and refrigerate. Besides the cleansing aspect of this concoction, there are real health benefits to ginger, honey and lemon.  These three ingredients help with digestion, nausea, infections and poor moods.
