Morning routine

Для моих русских друзей, кто хочет перевести мой блог - наверху есть кнопка переводчик - RUS :)

Basically for every person there is some sort of a morning routine that they do. People religiously pour themselves a cup of black coffee, some active ones do some morning yoga every day. Lots of my friends can't imagine their life without an oatmeal or for the others the day wouldn't start perfectly without a breakfast sandwich from a nearby coffeeshop. Anyway for the all of us the good start of the day is essential and for me the good day always starts with a hot ginger-lemon tea. It's so simple yet so benefital! For more than 2000 years, lemon and ginger are a part of medicinal practices. They’re basically used for preventing and treating countless health issues. Besides boosting energy circulation in your body, it enhances the body’s metabolic rate.

Below are 5  reasons to start your day with lemon ginger water:

1. Lemon ginger water is extremely beneficial in cleansing the liver. Lemon is a natural diuretic and also stimulates digestion by stimulating bile production in the  liver. 
2. Lemon Water is alkalizing. The body functions best in a more alkaline state and cancer cells tend to breed in an acidic body.

3. Great for glowing skin!  Lemon ginger water is better than any anti-aging cream on the planet.  Rich in Vitamins C and B (specifically riboflavin which protects cells from damage and is great for tissue repair), and minerals like calcium, phosphorous and magnesium (which are great for bones but also calms stress, nourishes adrenal glands, and stimulates collagen).

4.  Both ginger and lemon are great for digestion. 

5. For all the above reasons lemon-ginger tea helps the weightloss.

 - Grate about 1/2 inch of peeled ginger root into a mug.  

- Pour boiled water over the top and let sit for about 3-5 minutes. 

- Squeeze a half of a lemon into the water.  
- For a touch of sweet add in 1 tsp. of stevia or 2 tsp. of raw local honey.  
(If using honey, wait for water to cool to warm instead of hot).  I find the taste of lemon and ginger enough for me but will add local honey during allergy season or if I am feeling a cold coming on.

Also I always add cinnamon and lime as I love the flavour and it's also extremely beneficial so try it both ways and see which way you prefer.

Try this for 30 days and see a change in your energy levels, the radiance in your skin, and the numbers on the scale.
