Ginger Ale (AIP/Paleo)

aip ginger alePride Goeth Before a Fall… That saying was never truer than this past week when, after an entire winter of priding myself on avoiding these nasty stomach bugs that have been going around, I was struck down not once but TWICE with a nasty bug that just would not quit.

Stomach bugs are never fun, but when you have a digestive disease and are on a very limited diet devoid of most traditional “sick foods” it can be down right scary. Forget the plain noodles, the rice, the Gator-Aid, the mashed potatoes, and the saltines. What’s left to regain sustenance without destroying your already fragile belly?

I stuck with things like tea and coconut water, which is basically a natural, way better tasting, Gator-Aid. It is loaded with potassium and natural electrolytes to help keep you hydrated. I ate a fair amount of unsweetened applesauce, a few bananas and bone broth and I was back to normal within a few days. However, my favorite invention was natural AIP friendly ginger ale.

I love ginger ale, and ginger is fantastic for settling the stomach, but store-bought ginger ale contains no actual ginger and is loaded with sugar. This natural ginger ale recipe is so simple. Just make a basic simple syrup with honey and water add some ginger and allow it to simmer until it has a nice strong ginger taste and add it to some seltzer water! It is so good, you won’t just be drinking it when you get a bug. Trust me!
