As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum Beloved and Beautiful Black Queens
Our Beloved Messenger (PBUH) taught us to eat one meal a day for good health and long life with nothing between but coffee. He said we can live a long time on cream and sugar a long time. But he also said that it is not good that we do this through our coffee. It is better for you to just eat one meal a day with nothing between. Or one meal every other day.
Sisters, when I first began eating one meal a day, I thought to myself, “He said we can have coffee!” Disregarding the part about it not being good for us because I love coffee. So after reading the book quite a few more times, the realization finally sunk in that I needed to stop drinking coffee between meals because I want to live as long as I can live.
So, I thought it would be easier if I gradually switch to tea because the caffeine headaches rendered me incapable of doing anything but laying down until it subsided. Eventually, I decided that I needed to get off of caffeine altogether, so I started drinking Ginger Tea instead.
And one day, Sisters, I had the idea to try it with a little Lemon. It was delicious. I always use honey as a sweetener and the Ginger gave it an added boost of excitement.
So, now I’m drinking Lemon-Ginger Tea just until I can stop having anything altogether. I thought I invented it. But when I decided to write this blog and share my discovery with my Beautiful Sisters, I looked it up on Google and Bam! All kinds of Lemon-Ginger Tea stuff came up. They even have it in tea bags.
Honey and Lemon is really good when you’re feeling under the weather. And Ginger is good for you too. So, combining them is a win-win solution to anything that might ail you or just to help you get off of coffee. 🙂
