Foodie Confessions: Lemon + Hot Water.

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Ha, who knew that something as simple as a juice of half a lemon and a cup of hot water can be such a game-changer? I bet you already heard all the great benefits of drinking hot water with lemon each morning, right? Well, they are all true, but one thing that convinced me to really stick with it was what Sarah, the brilliant holistic nutritionist and vegetarian chef said:

"This is the best thing to consume upon waking, as it flushes the kidneys and the liver and alkalizes the blood. It also allows you to tune into whether or not you're really hungry. Usually after drinking this, I don't need to eat for several hours, instead of force-feeding myself first thing in the morning, which is never a good thing. Start now and do it for the rest of your miracles happen:)"

Remember when we talked about breakfasting? I love the idea of allowing your body to get in tune with your brain before you start the day :) What do you think? xo

P.S: Chefs and their breakfasts and a few other of my foodie rumbles:)

This is an ancient practice in the Caribbean.

You read my mind! I meant to start up the day with this for a few weeks, and I always end up procrastinating! Thanks for this reminder! :) Muah!

I have been doing this one and off for a few months now. I have noticed a change in that i do go to the loo more (TMI!)
But I feel great and am definitely keeping it up!

I did this for a bit but discovered it gave me horrible acid reflux and heartburn. I wish it didn't though because I enjoyed sipping on it.

Okay I am totally having GI issues since my surgery and I am so doing this.
The drs want to shove meds down me and I am so not about meds I am all about the natural approach!
Thanks for this!!!

My mom used to brew me hot water with vinegar-honey in the mornings. It's so good if you are sleeping with your mouth open :)

I definitely need to try doing this! I keep reading about apple cider vinegar in water, but this seems like a slightly less strong option... it will just taste like weak lemony tea! :) Thanks for the reminder/the share!
