Lemon Ginger Honey

aip condiments dairy free drinks gluten free paleo recipes

This recipe for Lemon Ginger Honey is as simple as the title. In a jar, place alternating layers of ginger and lemon slices, then pour honey into the jar. Let it “cure” in the fridge for a day, give it a shake or stir, and what you end up with is a lemon and ginger-infused honey syrup.

Once you’ve prepared a jar of lemon ginger honey, it can be added to herbal tea or plain hot water, used as a slightly diluted throat gargle, or taken by the spoonful for sore throats and coughs. If you can take the heat, cayenne or hot pepper sauce adds another level of inflammation and pain relief, while also helping to clear congestion and warm the body.

If you're anything like me, when I started down the path of thyroid-healthy eating I had questions-- lots of them. What to eat? What to avoid? And HOW do I do this? I wasted a lot of time trying to piece together bits and pieces of information from blog posts, infographics, books, and podcasts. What I didn't have was a step-by-step system. A roadmap, if you will, for how to put those bits and pieces together, in a way that got me where I wanted to go. That's why I created the Thyroid-healthy Meal Plan KickstartIt includes recipes, meal plans, instruction, and a 4-week roadmap to get you started and on your way with thyroid-healthy eating!
