Natural Cold & Flu Remedies + Recipes 🌿🍵

Today I'm going to share with you me favourite, tried and tested cold and flu recipes that are tasty and work by strengthening the immune system.


They have been in my life since I was a kid - my mum is amazing with herbs and has many homemade remedies up her sleeve.


I've been making these for years myself. In the beginning I used them to get rid of a cold I already had, but since then I've been making them solely to strengthen my immune system over the dark, cold, winter months.


Natural Cold Fighting Ingredients:

  • Lemon

  • Ginger

  • Garlic

You can use these ingredients in any way you wish, as long as you add them into your diet during the autumn months you should feel the positive effects.

Natural Cold and Flu Remedies Recipes

Fresh Lemon & Ginger Tea

Serves 1

Consume: Daily


Ingredients:

  • 1/2 fresh lemon

  • 2.5cm piece fresh ginger

Method:

Cut the ginger, with the skin on, into thin slices and place into a mug. Pour hot (not boiling) water into the mug. Squeeze the lemon juice in, then place the squeezed lemon into the mug too.


You can make this in larger quantities and brew it inside of a teapot.




Raw Garlic Sandwich

Serves 1

Consume: Daily or 1 week long 'marathon'. Around September time, have a full week where you'll consume a lot of garlic on a daily basis, this will strengthen your immune system and you won't have to have it daily.


Ingredients:

  • 2 raw garlic cloves

  • 1 pinch of sea salt

  • 1 slice of bread/rice cake/your prefered choice of base

Method:

Mince the raw garlic with the salt. Place it on your choice of bread, you can butter the bread if you prefer. Enjoy! :)


If you haven't had raw garlic before, you might be in for a surprise - it tastes amazing!


Raw Garlic Avocado

Ingredients:

  • 2 raw garlic cloves

  • 1 pinch of sea salt

Mince the raw garlic with the salt. Place it in a bowl with cubbed avocado, mix with a little extra sea salt and black pepper.


Enjoy! :)


Echinacea Tea

Serves 1

Consume: Daily

  • 1 tsp dry echinacea flowers or storebought teabag
