My mornings have changed drastically since having babies and starting businesses. I went from thinking 11am was an early start to the day to now being up well before the sun (and hopefully the babies).
My mornings are sacred to me now and something I look forward to. Having a great morning ritual helps so much for those early morning hours and creating a happy healthy feeling to kickstart any and every day.
One of my Must-Do’s is to Drink Something Healthy!
Some days I follow the 30 in 30 rule made famous by Tim Ferriss. Which is to consume 30g of protein within 30min of waking up. I nearly accomplish this by drinking a Vega Shake and eating 2 eggs. Technically 26g but it works wonders for me.
But other days when I need a little more feel good, that dig down deep, all encompassing, happy feel good to start my day,
Lately that has been most mornings. And it is an addicting accomplished feeling that lends an unparalleled way to start your day.
So without Further ado
The Best Day Inducing Detox Drink
What You Need
- 2-3 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- Half of a Lemon
- 2 Dashes of Cayenne Pepper
- 2 Dashes of Cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp Raw Local Honey
- 2 – 3 Cups of Warm Water
These numbers are estimates as I tend to just throw my drink together and eye it but it always comes out pretty close and I would say these numbers aren’t far off from what I would make. You can always add however much of each ingredient your tastes lean towards.
There is nothing difficult about making this drink and It takes all of 3 minutes. Simple.
- Put some water on the stove
- Cut and squeeze half a lemon in my cup
- Then pour 2 or 3 glugs of ACV in
- Add about 2 dashes of cayenne (because I like it spicy hot)
- 2 dashes of cinnamon (to balance the heat)
- Add a spoonful of honey
- Pour my warm water in, Mix it up and then Sip and Enjoy!
Make sure you get the ACV with the “mother” in it. These are strands of proteins, enzymes and friendly bacteria that give the product a murky appearance. Full of probiotics, acetic acid, and the nutrients, this stuff works wonders inside and out.
I love lemon! Something about it is so fresh and invigorating. It also has a slew of Health Benifits that will make your day even brighter like keeping you hydrated and increasing your metabolism.
I am a spicy lover and add a little heat to most things in life. Even my water. This yummy pepper can stimulate your body’s circulation and reduce acidity; it’s a powerful, spicy little pepper that offers many health benefits.
At the end of the day, cinnamon is one of the most delicious and healthiest spices on the planet. It can lower blood sugar levels, reduce heart disease risk factors and has a plethora of other impressive health benefits
Raw or Local Honey
I am quite obsessed with Raw Hawaiian Wildflower Honey. I even add it to my diy beauty products! For this detox drink it lends a distinct, sweet flavor my typical raw mountain honey I use for food, just doesn’t touch. And since I am in Hawaii I get the Local benefit of added allergy protection from the pollen that I am already breathing in.
