Running tip #35
I often tell people the reason I never get sick is because I have the constitution of an Irish potato farmer. I also believe I have a freakish immune system that works triple-time to zip through any bug or virus I encounter. It’s kind of a joke in our family that I go to bed sick and wake up well with an illness that laid everyone else low for a week. On the rare occasion a good night’s sleep does not knock out my cold, I drink my friend Kim Certain’s special brew to crush the spirit of any resilient germ.
Gently boil all of the following in one cup of water for 3 minutes:
- 1 clove crushed garlic
- 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
- 1 Tbs. honey
- juice of one lemon
- 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
Strain mixture before drinking.
Warning: sphincters beware the morning after!
