Here’s a lovely tea recipe I kidnapped from Dr Terry Wahls’ newsletter. If you’ve never heard of her, please check out her website and watch her TED talk, Minding your Mitochondria as soon as humanly possible. Dr Wahls is an extraordinary woman who put her advanced multiple sclerosis in remission with a structured paleo diet and she now conducts research into food as medicine and how it can help with brain injury and auto-immune disease.
She also makes a pretty nice brew. This one’s especially relaxing just before bedtime.
Evening Chamomile tea
Full fat coconut milk
A pinch of ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
Brew the chamomile tea, using two bags per cup of water. Add full fat, unsweetened coconut milk and spices to taste. This is my usual evening tea. It is a delicious and lovely end to the day. It is also, because of the spices, a delicious ending to a meal.
