I made a version of this that I drink for immune - in other circles it's called Super Tonic. During harvest time you take equal amounts of chopped or grated: Garlic, Ginger, Onion, Horseradish, & Cayenne place in jar and cover well with raw apple cider vinegar. I like to take a TBS and put in glass of water FIRST thing in the morning - first thing I drink.
You might enjoy the extra zip it has from horseradish and cayenne. One of my friends just takes a straight spoonful and so does her 8 year old son.
My mum, and all my brothers and sisters love it! I used grated ginger because I had no powder and it worked really well (I guess you can strain it if you're not keen on the bits). You still get that powerful kick! I'm going to try it with sparkling water soon, and also try adding lime/ginger.
I've also added some of my strong homemade kombucha along with the apple cider vinegar for extra health benefits. Still super yummy. And the kombucha is sometimes flavored with other fruits for a different twist, too.

has anyone tried making GGM using ginger essential oils? I use doTERRA EOs and they are safe for consumption and I was just curious about trying them with this recipe. I need to order some I guess and give it a try! LOL! In the mean time, I'm going to look through my spice rack and see if I have some powdered ginger...I think I do somewhere!

Also, Does anyone know if Ginger will raise heart rate or blood pressure? I'm looking into making GGM with Ground Ginger (from the spice department), and it requires 1-2 tsp per glass. Just double checking before I give it a try...don't want another reaction like I had with the cinnamon caps (my blood pressure and heart rate went up through the roof).

I have seen people mention using the essential oil, I haven't but it should work great I haven't heard about ginger raising blood pressure or pulse, but I hadn't about cinnamon either, maybe try just a bit and check?
msjongg: Just wondering... Are rice noodles on plan?

queen: Probably a good idea to start a topic asking about it. Generally, I think they want you to use the whole grains rather than something made from brown rice flour, but maybe there's more to know about it.

marmee: One question: if I have early morning coffee with coconut oil ( or if I choose cream) are they considered a snack, should I wait 3 hours before eating? If I eat an S meal soon there after am I ok? Would that be a problem if I eat an E meal soon after?

queen: You can post here if you like. But you can start a post by entering a forum (any of the linked titles above this shouting box). Once you are in the forum, you should see a "Create Thread" link in the title bar. Click that to get a posting screen.

queen: If you eat an S meal within an hour of your oil/cream coffee, it is all considered the same meal. Otherwise, you need to wait the 3 hours.

queen: If you are in weight loss mode, you avoid them. Maybe throw in one or two a month if you aren't losing well. It can help to shake things up and get losses started again.
