I need some detoxing in my life and that’s why I’m drinking a tonnnn of this mint tea! You know when you reach the point where you are just tired of feeling tired and you know it has a lot to do with how your diet has been lately…that’s where I am! The expression, “you are what you eat” feels about right. Like the cheese that is melted and wrapped around pizza crust…that’s pretty much the equivalent to my butt on the sofa. There’s a nice little rounded out indention that my butt sinks nicely into… Grey’s marathon anyone?? I can’t wait for the season 12 premiere this Thursday!
It’s hard to get out of bad habits once I’ve fallen into them but tea is always something that seems to help me get back on the right track. And this tea especially is soo good for you!
Here are some of the reasons I love it.
Mint – Curbs cravings! Relieves allergies and can calm an upset stomach.
Honey – Contains antioxidants that can reduce risk of cancer or heart problems. It’s also anti-bacterial.
Ginger – Helps ease nausea, is anti-inflammatory and helps ease bloating, menstrual pain, muscle soreness plus a million other good things.
Lemon – Balances pH levels, cleanses your liver and bowels and also a million other good things. Lemon and ginger are basically super amazing.
Here’s what you do:
Juice half of one big lemon
Add 1 tbsp of honey
Grate ginger root into the mix (as much or as little as you’d prefer). I usually grate the ginger until there is about a tablespoon worth to steep.
Break off several big mint leaves and break them into lots of little pieces to steep.
Let it all steep for 3-5 minutes or longer if you’d prefer
Pour the tea through a strainer to catch all of the mint, ginger and possible lemon seeds and then enjoy!!!
