Sick Day

Knitting, new IT crowd episodes, invented the best ever tea to have on a sick day.
beet tea
Best Sick Day Tea Recipe*

1/4 of a beetroot, peeled and finely grated
1 bag of green tea
1 1/2 teaspoons of honey
1 juiced lime
hot water

Mix together the honey, lime and beetroot in a glass, adding about half a cup of hot water, let it sit for 5 minutes. Fill a mug up halfway with hot water and brew the green tea. When the tea is ready, stir the beetroot/lime/honey mixture, and strain it into the mug. Done.

*My disclaimer is that I don't actually believe that taking vitamins actually helps to recover from a cold, but it is nice to have a tasty drink.

Ugh, I am sick too! Fortunately there are tons of beets this time of year, and this is a great way to use them! I can't wait.

That actually sounds really, super healthy. Maybe a good preventative.
