I love simple and easy things we can do to boost overall health. One of them is to drink lemon water.
What do you get when you drink a bit of lemon juice in water?
- a boost of Vitamin C;
- inflammation reduction;
- help in digestion and detoxification;
- stimulates the enzyme function of the liver;
- clearer skin; and
- may help in weight loss.
The best time to drink lemon water is first thing in the morning. Squeeze the lemon into a cup of warm water and enjoy first thing in the morning. You will start to feel a difference right away, especially if you miss a day.
⚡️Hydration. ⚡️Detoxification. ⚡️Nutrition.
Simply mix chia seeds (1 tbs) with coconut water (2 cups). Use regular water if you don't like coconut water. Let sit in fridge for 10-15 minutes and then consume. Optional - add Slice of 🍋 lemon.
This is a great snack choice between meals.
Chia seeds are full of omega-3 fats, which are good for for promoting a healthy heart ❤️ AND reducing inflammation.
Have you heard of matcha tea? It's a green tea that is said to have three times the antioxidants of regular green tea. Good stuff, eh? It also helps to support memory, boost metabolism (winning!) and increase immunity.
I want to introduce you to a delicious way to prepare matcha tea. I discovered this recipe a few years ago and have reintroduced it into my routine recently as I've gone off coffee as part of an elimination diet.
What is One Simple Thing? It is just a quick message made up of small explanations, lessons or fact nuggets for you to incorporate into your life, share with others or even store away for a later date. My mission is to inspire people to live their healthiest and most naturally biased life. This is another way to do that because we all know that knowledge is power.
