Ginger-Mint Soother for Morning Sickness
GF DF V Q LC
Provides hydration and nausea relief for you.
Moms tell us this really works for morning sickness! For a boost of vitamin C, feel free to eat the oranges, lemons, or ginger after you drink the tea. Wash the fruit really well before slicing it – try to buy organic ingredients for this recipe. Make a large batch and keep it in the fridge. It’s delicious cold too!

3 to 5 thin slices of peeled ginger (size is not important)
