With week 1 of the 8 Week Get Healthy Plan upon us I thought I would share some other great drink ideas to try.
First off is this great Detox Drink. It works best when you have it first thing in the morning. The ingredients in the drink will really kick up your metabolism not to mention your taste buds!
This drink does take some time to get used to, but once you do you will start to really enjoy it.
1 glass of cold water, about 12 oz
1 Tb apple cider vinegar*
1 Tb lemon juice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 small pinch of cayenne pepper
stevia, to taste or some honey
Mix all the above in a glass. It is best to drink this using a straw as the vinegar can be tough on your enamel.
Sip or just drink it as fast as you can, depending on how much you like it 🙂
Another great way to flavor your water is to add in some fruit or a squeeze of lemon.
One of my new favorite ways to flavor water is using these great packets from True Lemon. They were kind enough to send me some packages of their True Lemon, True Lime, and True Orange.
The Lemon flavor is just 100% lemon flavor with no sweetness. It is great added to water or would be delicious sprinkled on fish before or after cooking. The True Lime flavor is what I used here. Both the Lime and Orange have a little evaporated cane juice in them and they taste so good in water.
All I did was add one packet to a whole cup. These packets also go great added to a green smoothie to up the flavor and help hide the “green“ taste.
Have you tried True Lemon?
Do you have any ideas to flavor water that you enjoy?
*The True Lemon company sent me the products, but as always my opinions of the products are my own.
