Liver Loving Lemon Tea

This refreshing beverage will not only hydrate you first thing in the am, but will provide the medicinal and nutritional benefits of turmeric (anti inflammatory), black pepper (boost HCL and absorption), cinnamon (blood sugar balancing) and cayenne (boosts circulation).

It is a very energizing beverage that can be consumed upon arising or for an afternoon pick me up. I drink it before my coffee, so I can confidently attest to it’s ‘pick me up’ powers!

Lemon TeaWhat you will need:
1/4 tsp tumeric
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch black pepper
pinch of cayenne
a pinch or two of salt
optional: grated ginger
1/8- 1/4 tsp green leaf stevia (or drops to taste)
the juice of half a lemon
1 cup hot water

How to do it:
1. Boil water.
2. Put spices into mug.
3. Pour boiling water on top and let cool a few minutes.
4. Squeeze lemon in and stir.

Perfect as a morning ritual to start your day.

‘Creamy’ Variations:

1. Use coconut milk instead of water.

2. Add 1 TBSP coconut oil and 1 Tbsp of grass fed butter and blend in your highest power blender.

Making it a habit…

Lemon Tea RitualNow here is some help to make drinking this a habit. Purchase some tiny containers or jars and pre measure the spices. That way each morning, all you have to do is boil the water and squeeze the lemon!

If you want to pre squeeze the lemon, you can do that as well.

Simply squeeze 6 lemons, add a tsp of salt and an 1/8th cup of whey or apple cider vinegar to keep it fresh and add the benefit of good bacteria!

You’ll have more than enough for a weeks worth of Liver Loving Lemon tea and you can use the extra in cooking etc.
