In with the good, out with the bad.
Mondays are always a kind of day or reckoning for me: my gut and my bank account are there to remind me of all of my bad decisions. Fortunately, I have a remedy for at least one of those problems that costs under five dollars (if that) and gives me tons of energy.
I like to drink this first thing in the morning if possible and maybe again mid day. While this does encourage a healthy "movement" it's nothing like the "flat tummy teas" that you see everyone hawking on instagram.
3 Ingredient Detox Drink
1 cup of water
Juice of Half a Lemon
Thumb Sized Piece of Ginger, Sliced
Honey, to taste (optional)
Combine water, ginger slices, and lemon juice in a small saucepan and turn stove on to medium high heat. Let the mixture come to a boil, reduce heat, and cook for about 3 more minutes. Pour the heated water into a strainer over a cup (unless you like particles touching your mouth while you drink, I don't, it's gross) and add honey. Enjoy!
Every time I drink this, I immediately see a decrease in bloating and feel an abundance of energy.
What do you do when you need to get back on track from a few days of bad eating choices?
