Cheers to a HEALTHY HOLIDAY SEASON & a warm cup of Fire Cider 🔥

Our family loves a good brew of fire cider, especially these days when prioritizing health is a MUST!

Fire Cider is a slightly spicy, tasty remedy effective in helping relieve sinus congestion, ward off colds and flus, aid digestion, increase circulation and boost the immune system.

Taken daily in one large shot of 1.5 ounces, it can support the immune system. 

If you're not used to the strong flavor, you may want to dilute it with water. This liquid can be used for cooking, also.

I personally like to take a shot each day as well as use it in soups, marinades and chili, and as a base in dressings.

The main ingredients in fire cider and its benefits are listed/

Ginger—contains antiviral properties


🧄Garlic—antiviral and antimicrobial properties

Jalapeño pepper—supports circulation and contains antioxidants

Turmeric—contains potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties

🍎Apple cider—contains various healthful properties, including antimicrobial and antioxidant effects.

🌱Rosemary—rich source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds

Comment and let me know if you have made your own batch of fire cider!

Let me know what you think!!!

It’s fun to think that yesterday I was walking in snow and today I’m gardening. Love being back in my garden, my kitchen and with my family.

Teaching the kids how to repair holes in clothes and socks and to fix loose buttons has been one of best money saving skills as well a life skill I think everyone should have.

Thankfully, the kitchen is, by far, one of the easiest places to make significant waste-reducing changes because swaps are simple, and there are many options available on the market.

On my web site I share what my favorite zero waste kitchen essentials are and you find the link in my profile.

Lots of unpackaged sourdough bread in the grocery store. The smell when you walk by is amazing.
