Lemon Ginger & Turmeric Tea .....PLUS a Giveaway!!!

It's a beautiful ( but cold) day here in Toronto and I woke up needing an extra little boost of nutrition to jump start my morning..

Decided to glam up my usual hot lemon water (you all should be drinking this!) ...turmeric is a staple spice that holds many health properties & turns everything that golden yellow - which is a pretty start the the day.

Super easy & takes 5 minutes.

Lemon, Ginger & Turmeric Tea

(serves 2) 

This just oozes happiness...

What you'll need:
1 lemon*
1 inch of fresh ginger*
1 tsp of turmeric (ground)*
1 tsp raw honey*
2 cups of hot water

What to do:
Boil water.  Squeeze 1/2 lemon into each mug. Add 2-3 slices of ginger. Pour hot water until 3/4 full.  Stir in turmeric and honey.  Finish with ice cubes or room temp water.  Stir again and drink 30-45 minutes before your coffee-tea & breakfast.


Why should you drink this?

  • Puts your body in an alkaline state - which is ideal & prevents infection and disease.
  • Raw honey & turmeric - anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial & high in anti-oxidants!
  • Helps digestion
  • A natural liver flush (which we all need!)
  • Immune system boost
  • Happy & healthy skin!
  • Freshens breath
  • Energy boost
  • Is delicious and a great habit to add to your morning routine, all these benefits for 5 minutes of work!  Oh so worth it!
