What do you drink in the mornings?
I know coffee is a fan favorite, but have you considered other warm, comforting drinks in the morning before you have your coffee (or in place of it altogether)?
Smoothies are my favorite morning beverage. I alternate between a few different ones – Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein Powder (Chocolate), Vega Sport Protein Powder (Chocolate), and Orgain Organic Plant Based Protein Powder (I love the chocolate and peanut butter flavors). I add the powder to almond or coconut milk, MCT oil powder, a banana, and sometimes greens or other fruits. I know that I’m starting my day with a balanced meal and it keeps me full for hours. I don’t drink coffee until mid morning if I drink it at all.
I’d like to suggest an experiment for you to try, if you are willing. Before you have your usual morning drink, whatever that may be, try this for the next week.
Boil fresh water and add the juice of a lemon to it. You may also, for added benefit, put a dash of apple cider vinegar in your cup. If needed, sweeten with a small amount of raw honey.
Enjoy a cup of this before your coffee, tea, or drink of choice. You’ll see a difference within a few days, but I can’t wait to see how you feel after a week! Be sure to come back and let me know how it went for you.
