Power Recipe No. 10: My Daily Health Maintenance Elixir

Cup with honey

  • This is my morning “coffee” and my evening “cocktail.”

  • Refreshing, spicy yet soothing.

  • My digestive system feels good after I drink it.

  • Curbs my appetite.

  • And it’s invigorating!


As a kid, whenever I had sniffles, my dad brewed me tea of hot water, honey, and lemon. This combination, along with ginger and turmeric, is considered an immune system booster. These days, stores are capitalizing on this ol’ skool home remedy with expensive commercially packaged “shots” of ginger and turmeric.


You can make a tub of this for pennies. Here’s my version.


◊ ◊ ◊



  • 10 ounces water or your favorite decaffeinated tea

  • Raw honey

  • 1 freshly squeezed lemon; 2 if you like lemon       

  • Ground Turmeric

  • Black pepper

  • Cayenne Pepper

  • For an extra kick and medicinal boost, add fresh grated ginger.



Combine ingredients and drink up!
