Growing up in New England, one of the more curious regional words that I heard a lot was “tonic” – which was the generic term for soda – like Coca Cola was a kind of tonic. I always thought it sounded like medicine, which is probably the root of it. Anyway, tonics, as in the type of thing that can help your health, are making a comeback and I am all over the trend, which is why I love Tonic – Delicious and Natural Remedies to Boost Your Health by Tanita de Ruijt.
