FOOD AS MEDICINE:
The zippy toddy acts as an expectorant, thins mucus, aids in nausea, aids with sleep, and boosts immune function with vitamin C. I concocted this tonic herbal drink to assist my liver and it has quickly become one of my favorites! The taste is a bit different – it’s rich, spicy, and creamy, with a mocha butterscotch taste. It’s really hard to describe, but my taste buds dance to it. In turn, my hormones are happy, hence the name!
