Elephant garlic for the cold and flu season.

 

Plant:

 

Elephant garlic is a perennial plant belonging to the onion genus. It is not a true garlic, but a variant of the garden leek. It has a tall, solid, flowering stalk and broad, flat leaves much like those of the leek, but forms a bulb consisting of exceptionally large, garlic-like cloves. The best part? It has a very mild flavor for people who prefer a less strong garlic.


 

 

Ingredients for 2 cups of tea

 

• 2 tsp honey 
• ½ clove of elephant garlic (instructions below)
• 1 squeezed lemon juice
• 1 tsp coconut oil organic, extra virgin 
• 1 tsp fresh ginger grated 
• 1 echinacea tea bag optional

 

Instructions

 

1. Combine ingredients under boiling water. Let steep at least five minutes before sipping.

The coconut oil is anti-bacterial, plus it coats your stomach and digestive tract, which is helpful first thing in the morning to help with digestion. Ginger is anti-inflammatory. The lemon is both soothing with the honey and alkaline-balancing.

 

Enjoy
