Fever has come to our house, I’m pretty sure it isn’t The Pestilence but it’s a fever none the less. I’m pretty sure I would get a distinction if I sat an exam purely about fever however that didn’t stop me spending the night on Google – just in case I missed something the last time we had a temperature, or the time before that.
It turns out that I had missed something – cayenne pepper and ginger promote fever and sweating which will help reduce the overall temperature and help relieve congestion. Now I just had to think of a way to using cayenne pepper for my breakfast. And here it is…
2 oranges, peeled
1 grapefruit, peeled
1 inch ginger
Sprinkle of cayenne pepper
- Roughly chop the larger pieces of fruit to a size that will happily go through your juicer
- Juice the ginger and peach first then put through the citrus fruits. I always pour through a little filtered water at the end to push the juice along
- Add the cayenne pepper to the juice and mix well, pour into glasses to serve
The citrus fruit in this juice will not only provide a boost of vitamin C, it will help to reduce fever and fight fatigue.
