I would be the first to admit that eating clean, gluten free and candida friendly is a difficult process that takes quite a bit of will power to stay on track. For the past couple of weeks, although I have been eating well, I’ve still been cheating. Having a little browning here and there, a glass of my favorite Merlot and to my own detriment cheese. So lets just say it’s been a rough couple of days.
As I try to get back on the straight and sugar free, I’ve cut out my afternoon coffee and replaced it with this candida fighting Cayenne Garlic & Ginger Tea.
If you don’t like garlic and ginger, this is not for you, but if you do and enjoy a little spice in your life this is the tea for you.
All you need is:
- 1 Piece of ginger 1 inch thick grated
- 1 clove garlic grated
- A dash of cayenne pepper
- 1/2 packet of stevia.
- Add your grated garlic and ginger to 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and let simmer for about 5 mins (or longer depending on how strong you want your tea.)
- When there is only one minute left on the timer, add the dash of cayenne and let simmer with the garlic and ginger for the last minute.
- Finally strain your tea into a cup, sweeten with stevia and enjoy.
Note: If you’re not a big fan of garlic, you can always leave it out and just drink it as Cayenne and Ginger Tea.
