Beat the Cold with these Five Warming Spices

Contributed by Laurie Ward – Shiatsu Therapist. As I write this we are in the middle of a prolonged deep freeze. During these bitterly cold days it can feel impossible to warm up. Tumeric, cinnamon, ginger, peppercorns and cardamon are well known warming spices. Heat up your core by using them in your cooking or follow the instructions below to make a delicious warming tea. Portions can be adjusted to suit your taste.

1. ½ tsp tumeric powder
2. 1 tsp honey
3. ½ tsp ground cinnamon
4. ½ inch ginger peeled and chopped
5. 4 peppercorns
6. 10 cardamon seeds
7. 1 cup milk of choice
8. 1 teabag or ½ tsp powder

In a small pan over low heat combine the tumeric and honey to make a paste. Add remaining ingredients and warm until milk is steaming. Pour through mesh strainer directly into your cup. Drink and enjoy the warmth!
