This morning I awoke to a dusting of white snow on the streets below and hillside just behind our apartment. I also awoke with a terrible sore throat. Perhaps it was that I slept with my mouth open the night before? No, not me… I’d never do such a thing. LOL! Perhaps it was the evening walk the night before with Mr. B in the blustery winds, or perhaps it’s just something I picked up from work that continues to make its rounds. Whatever it was… it isn’t welcomed and needs to go.
Normally I’d sip a spicy peppery remedy that my grandparents would make when i’d be back home staying with them, but this time I remembered that we had some Asian pears and honey. The two ingredients that my Korean co-workers tell me will heal any throat ailments because they are loaded with Vitamin C and K. Today I’ll put them to the test and get some sweet serenity on this Sunday.
I used to get I’ll all the time, any bug that was going around, was only a matter of time before I got it. A few years ago I started having shots of lemon juice and honey and found that I wasn’t getting the colds or flus that were going around. I now have just a spoonful of honey on my cereal in the morning and still don’t get the bugs. I would totally recommend a spoonful of honey everyday!
I will have to give that a try next. Typically I am good to go. This year has been wonky.
Never tried the pears before. I’m usually a honey/ginger/cayenne syrup kind of girl. It has a lot of kick but it really works fast 🙂 Hoping you feel better soon.
If you can get your hands on an asian pear give it a go, they are quite juicy nonetheless. I’ll have to try the honey ginger and cayenne syrup mixture sometime too. Thanks for sharing!
Hope you stay well….
Thank you, Janis! I’m good just a tickle in the throat.
I’ll need to get some Asian pears and honey to try the remedy out. I’ve got a bad cold and throat but can’t take any medication right now. Nightmare!!!
Yes, try it out and let me know how it goes. I hope you feel better ASAP. Being sick especially with your beautiful weather lately is just no fun!
