Something I look forward to everyday: My health cocktail.
Each of us has a few key things that we do each day that help us to feel strong, and maintain balance during what can often feel like an imbalanced routine. For me, one of these things is having a simple way to ignite my system. I make a very easy-to-prepare health cocktail, one that combines ingredients to help detoxify tissues and invigorate blood flow. To me, it’s a break, it’s a treat, and it energizes me and simply makes me happy. It’s part of my daily ritual, a moment I take for myself to fill my cup, and it keeps me feeling strong for my day.
It’s also incredibly simple:
1 tablespoon honey (for best results, add honey first with a little hot water and stir)
Handful of ice
2 tablespoons apple cider
1/2 a lemon squeezed (I like Meyers lemons)
2 heathy dashes of cayenne pepper (omit if you have acid reflux/heartburn)
All of this can be varied to taste.
