Today I am on the tail end (hopefully) of a miserable cold/flu/sinus infection. After spending a couple of days prostate with a high fever wondering what my kids are up to, I have discovered a fantastic cure for sinus congestion. I have had ongoing issues with this problem and because I am reticent about popping pills. I have tried snorting salt water, steam baths, homeopathic and herbal cures and drinking apple cider vinegar. All of these seemed to help a bit, but I am very enthusiastic about my new discovery, which is Tomato Tea.
Tomato Tea is really more like a hot bloody mary (sans alcohol) or spicy soup than a tea and contains tomato-vegetable juice, garlic, cayenne pepper, lemon juice and a touch of honey.
My version of the drink involves heating the tomato-vegetable juice in a pan on the stove and blending a small amount of water with the raw garlic, freshly squeezed lemon juice and a teaspoon or so of Miso, which is chock full of flavour and nutrients. Since there is more nutritional value in raw ingredients I then pour the blended mixture into the hot tomato juice and drink up. Oh yeah, the key is LOTS OF CAYENNE to get your nose draining.
Try it - it works!
