Sweet Immunity Boost

Who wouldn’t need it on a frosty January day? Here in Slovakia the temperatures were as low as -30ºC a few days ago.  Although conditions like these are quite rare, they do occur and you have to be prepared, unless you want to spend days at home cooped up in your room. Well, you can’t afford it either, as a matter of fact. There are things out there that need to be done, and besides, you want to get your daily dose of fresh air. So, apart from wrapping yourself in warm clothes, try this simple yet powerful formula, which is sure to give you still more warmth and that much-needed kick.

Sweet Immunity Boost
Serves 4

  • 4 apples
  • 10 g fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Method:

Peel the apples and the ginger. Grate them into a bowl. Add the honey and mix well. Serve as a dessert or a healthy snack.

Yes, it’s as simple as it sounds! Try and get raw, unpasteurized honey from a small local beekeeper. This way you will not only have your bowl packed full with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, but you also add subtle flavours of the regional flora to it, as well as a delicious aroma.

It’s always good to know where your honey comes from. Go for a quality brand from a trusted local source if you can.
