MY COLD FIGHTING CONCOCTION

Mr. was struck with cold during the holidays (thank goodness it wasn't as bad as last year) and asked me to brew some green tea for him. Knowing me, I decided to add a few extra ingredients to make it even more effective. I boiled some filtered water and once taken off the stove I added few bags of organic green tea, mango-passion fruit herbal tea for flavor and two bags of Yerba Mate for natural caffeine kick and let them brew for about 5 minutes under the cover so it won't cool off too quickly. Once not boiling hot anymore (hot water kills the beneficial vitamins and nutrients) I added some honey and fresh, finely cut ginger root and let it sit for another 5 minutes or so. Voila!
For lunch; delicious tacos with faux-chicken strips flavored with taco spices. 
It's been one busy week at work, but we're being rewarded with a three day weekend. Thank you Martin Luther King. "Yes, if you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice. Say that I was a drum major for peace. I was a drum major for righteousness. And all of the other shallow things will not matter." 
Respect.
