I work all week, I take care of the kids so when the Friday night rolls around, I secure a babysitter (it's a competitive field out there). Then, I call some friends and we head to out to eat. Usually we choose some spicy, ethnic joint.
Sometimes after eating different cuisines or rich food, my stomach might rebel from overly adventurous tastes.
Chinese food for some reason always leaves me with an upset stomach. Don't even get me started on Ethiopian food - the spices can be a curse. Not that these things keep from eating my favorite ethnic dishes.
When I get home from dinner, I head straight for the fridge and grab my favorite belly ache remedy - a bottle of Reed's Ginger Brew. I always keep a 4-pack on hand for various tummy emergencies. It's a new kind of night cap, if you will.
My favorite is Reed's Original - the taste is crisp, light, and refreshing - and it's made with 17 grams of fresh ginger root. YUM!!!!
Need a little more ginger power? There's also Reed's Extra Ginger Brew made with a whopping 25 grams of fresh ginger - definitely necessary on certain nights (Mexican?).
I sit on the couch, slowly sipping my bubbly Ginger Brew, and I tell you, it settles my stomach like a charm. Then I can move on from babying my belly and start planning the rest of my weekend.
