Coming down with something and want to nip it in the bud?

This recipe is for you.

Isn’t it true that whenever you begin to feel a little off it is always the most inconvenient time to be sick? Two days before a big interview, you just moved, winter break just started and all you kids are home. You know what I mean…

Here is a great quick “wellness shot” to put together as soon as you feel something coming on.

In a shot glass layer 4 even layers of:

● Olive oil
● Fresh lemon juice 
● Honey 
● Finely chopped garlic

Now, bottoms up!

Take this about every four hours for two days until you feel better.

This shot has antimicrobial, antiviral and immune supporting benefits. 
● The lemon is high in vitamin c which is an antioxidant and supports the immune system. 
● Honey is a powerful antimicrobial along with being full of the properties of the flowers whose nectar the honey was made from. 
● Garlic is antiviral and immune supporting in addition to have a soothing effect on upper respiratory issues. 
● Lastly olive oil has antioxidants and anti inflammatory properties.

Note: If the bad timing is two hours before a date omit the garlic and use ginger root instead
