Drink This Upon Waking

I’m not one for cleanses.  I am all about moderation and so I like to create small, daily habits that when strung together create a healthy rhythm.  That being said, I wanted to create a concoction that would provide a gentle “cleanse” each morning, while also utilizing practical and affordable ingredients.

Here’s what I came up with:

8 oz. water

1/2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar (organic, raw, un-filtered)

1/4 of a fresh lemon, squeezed

1/2 tsp. turmeric

I drink this every morning prior to breakfast, after having a glass of water.  Surprisingly, it doesn’t taste a gnarly as you might think.  If you are sensitive to strong tastes, however, try mixing these ingredients with a hot tea of your choice.

Here’s what I’ve noticed:

Improved digestion

Higher energy levels throughout the day

Decreased inflammation, including decreased bloating

Clear and toned complexion

I encourage you to try this out for two weeks and assess the results.  Please share your feedback and let me know if you have any questions!
