Morning Brain Tonic (from the book Limitless)
2-inch piece of ginger, peeled and cut into slices
2-inch piece of turmeric, peeled and cut into slices (note
: this will stain, so watch clothes and countertops)
4 cups filtered water
Organic green tea (loose or plastic-free tea bags for 2 servings)
1/2 organic lemon, juiced
Dash of black pepper
Raw honey (optional)
Place the turmeric, ginger, and water into a small saucepan.
Bring to a slow simmer on medium-high heat. Add the green tea and simmer for at least 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat. Add the lemon juice, dash of black pepper, and honey (if using).
Strain and serve hot. Avoid eating for 20 minutes after drinking this tonic.
Note: You can also make a large batch of the tonic mix ahead of time. Simply add a larger quantity of turmeric, ginger, and lemon to a juicer. Place this juice into the fridge, covered tightly with a lid, for up to 7 days. When serving, just add to hot water and green tea.
