During the cold season, the risk of cold, flu and other infections becomes higher than ever.
That’s why, it becomes extremely crucial to take good care of your diet.
Diet, in particular, plays a significant role in keeping you healthy and warm, inside out, when the temperature starts to fall.
So, here are top 5 hot-and-healthy drinks for winters.
Hot Ginger Tea and Hot Lemon Water
Ginger Tea: Delicious and soothing in its own right, a hot cupful of ginger tea helps in digestion, boosts up immunity, and helps fight cold and cough, during the winter season.
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 stick cinnamon
Peel from half an orange (use a vegetable peeler and avoid the white pith)
1/4 cup juice from half an orange
3 black tea bags
3 full tea cups of boiling water
Lemon water: Another great way to stay warm and healthy, this winters- hot water-lemon infusion helps flush out the toxins from the liver and kidneys.
1 lemon, sliced thin
1 tsp honey
1/2 cinnamon stick
shake of nutmeg
Enough boiling water to fill your cup
Hot Turmeric Milk and Apple Cider-Cinnamon Syrup
Turmeric Milk: Among other health-boosting benefits, turmeric works wonders against inflammation and joint pain. Thus, a glassful of hot turmeric milk is great for staying warm and healthy in winters.
1 cup Whole milk (Or Coconut / Soy / Almond) 3/4 teaspoon turmeric (Powder or Haldi) 1 teaspoon honey. 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (Ground or Pepper Powder, reduce it to a pinch if you prefer less spicy)
Apple Cider-Cinnamon syrup: Apple Cider is rich in Vitamin C, iron, and cholesterol-reducing soluble fiber- pectin, and cinnamon helps in digestion and controls blood sugar levels. Surely, a health-booster for the winters!
Herbal coffee to the rescue: Try herbal coffee, as it tastes almost the same as your regular coffee, but it comes with the benefit of zero-caffeine, thus eliminating caffeine’s side-effects. Plus, it is packed with many healthy ingredients like dandelion, burdock, and beetroot, among others.
2 tbsp pau d’arco. 4 teaspoons roasted dandelion root. 3 teaspoons roasted chicory. 2 teaspoons roasted cacao nibs ((see recipe below)) 1/4 teaspoon cinnamin. 3 cups boiling water.
