Mood Foods Recipe Collection

As its name implies, this warm drinks recommended first thing in the morning. Lemon stimulates a cleansing flush by encouraging bile production, which will get things moving! If in the morning you experience sticky mucus in your throat, use honeys in the recipe, as it is known for its scraping action – it removes any build up from the mouth and throat. In cold weather, make a winter warmer by boiling one teaspoon of grated ginger root in the water before adding lemon. If you don’t experience mucus or if you have trouble moderating sweet taste, you can omit the honey.  


Serves 1


310ml of water 

Juice of a ΒΌ of a lemon

1 tsp honey (if required)


In a small pot or kettle, bring the water to the boil. Remove from the heat and pour the boiling water into a large mug. 

To serve, stir in the freshly squeezed lemon juice and honey (if you are using it).

You could add any herbs of your choice if you have any growing in your garden or have any in your home. I like to use thyme, oregano and sage and these are best used after they have been dried.
