It’s a New Year so why not start a New You! The holidays have come and went and so did the food and Egg nog! It’s time to welcome a new you and the best way to do that is with a delicious healthy organic detox. Taryn Toomey created one of the easiest tonic recipes ever. Toomey says. “I love this tonic because it’s a great way to start your day off with a self-care ritual that creates a healthy environment in the body and ignites the digestive system.” The health benefits of turmeric—it’s anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and filled with antioxidants—really spice up this simple, hot drink. But each of the other ingredients has its own superpower, too. Lemon helps alkalize the body and flush out the liver, cayenne revs up the metabolism, and ginger improves the absorption of nutrients, Toomey explains.
Every morning instead of coffee just have a glass of this tonic and if will have you feeling great and energized for the rest of the day!
1 whole lemon
2 healthy dashes of turmeric
A bit of fresh ginger (use a micro plane)
A small pinch of cayenne
Squeeze the whole lemon into a large mug or Mason jar, add the other ingredients, and then fill the Mason jar with hot water, stir, and drink slowly.
