Is there a food item that can do all of these things?
My daughter has GI problems and when she has ginger tea, she swears it helps.
Ten facts about ginger*:
Like Moths to a Flame...This adage refers to the belief that people are driven by misguided values (such as greed or lust) and that this inevitably leads to self-destruction (moths commit suicide when they fly to the light).
Entomologists still don’t know why moths do this. With each hypothesis, there are contradictions to the assertion. Thus, the mystery continues. (LiveScience)
Something that we DO know is that people often kill their dreams through self-doubt and bad habits. It’s a slow and painless death. In fact, it might be quite enjoyable: Netflix Marathons, junk food binges and endless chatting on social media are feel good in that moment.

So accept it all!
Went running through the desert
I thought of the kangaroos I drew
with deep admiration of
their hefty legs
Our hearts beating
lungs exchanging energy
When I don’t get enough sleep, everything bugs me. It’s early to bed tonight!
Fact: “Man is the only mammal that willingly delays sleep.” (sleepfoundation.org)
