The REAL Ginger Ale

Last week the hubs caught a serious stomach bug (and a bug is an understatement). It was kind of weird since he never gets sick. Until about a couple of years ago, I was always the one to catch any illness in the air. I was the one getting taken care of by others (just ask my Momma). It’s a good feeling knowing that I rarely get sick anymore, and I can honestly attribute that to all the delicious green juices I drink and the clean, chemical, processed-free life I try to live each day!

I thought back to childhood and reminisced about what my mom gave me when I had the stomach flu. It hit me – I always had a refreshing, sugary, no-real-ginger ale. Don’t get me wrong, it’s delicious & the bubbles do settle a stomach, but I don’t exactly think a can of soda claiming to be made of real ginger is the best option. After all, the ginger is the main ingredient that helps soothe stomach pains. So what did I do? Well, I made my own of course!
