Tummy Tea (remedy for nausea)

This is a great home remedy that I make any time my toddler has a tummy ache.  Works for adults too of course.  It takes care of nausea and vomiting almost instantly, and tastes good.

1 cup hot water
1/4 teaspoon grated ginger or ginger juice
1 teaspoon raw honey

Pour hot water over ginger and let stand for 3 minutes, then stir in honey.  Drink while still warm for maximum benefit.

Vegetable Barley Soup

In this cold weather, I am always looking for a good soup recipe.  I came across this one from Real Simple, and could amost taste it with a loaf of crusty bread!  Mmmm...  No need for meat, this one uses the wholesome goodness of fresh veggies, whole grains and canned beans to bring a simple and delightful soup to your table.  I will substitute potatoes for the parsnips.
