Well, maybe not totally new, but new to me. So I'm mixing up some ORS in the kitchen after having a multi-hour discussion with a gal about KETO and Fasting. Those two subjects are fascinating in themselves, but combined make for some really amazing healing possibilities. If you don't know anything about those two............look them up. You'll be shocked to learn the medicinal power they have in terms of inflammation reduction, gut health, and on and on and on. Truly amazing. One of tidbits I gleaned is drinking lemon water helps cleanse your liver. The citric acid does wonders. The other tidbit I got was that artificial sweeteners do the body no good at all. Pretty common sense, unless you're not paying attention, which I wasn't. Also, apple cider vinegar sort of doubles the cleansing power of the citric acid......so I want to do that too. So I'm standing over the sink gettin' ready to make my ORS.........and I get thinking. Ya, I now....you can smell it all the way over there. Ha-Ha!
So I'm thinking ORS is really just sugar and salt in water. But unflavored it tastes a bit like drinking ocean water. Then I start thinking.....sugar.....and lemon....and water........that's LEMONADE! I LOVE lemonade!! But will it mask the salt? Time to get mixing......and it sure does! You can of course adjust the amount of lemon juice you use, just use fresh lemons and not the concentrated juice, which is crap. So after a few tries with varying amounts of squeezed lemon wedges..........I got it! Tastes like lemonade.........cuz that's what it is. No hint of salt to be found. Once I finish this quart I'm going to replicate it, but rhen try adding the apple cider vinegar. Might totally f&*k it up......but I really want to find a way to incorporate that into my ORS.
So as those smart people say.........when life hands you lemons..........make ORS!!! If you've discovered any other good ORS recipes.......please share with everyone! Now I have to back to staring at the stupid Golden Corral video to see if I can find the kid's sleeves....which I can't. Because they're not the kids'.....they're the Mom's. Homie is on my shit list for making watch that video like 47 times!!!
