I’ve been reading several self help books lately that discuss morning routines and nearly every single one recommends starting the day by drinking water. Less caffeine and more aqua. If you’re looking for a way to kick the caffeine habit and spruce up your water try lemon ginger water!
A simple Google search will show you the variety of benefits from ginger and lemon.
Immunity boost anyone? Both ginger and lemon have anti-inflammatory properties that prevent inflammation and enhance the activity of the liver. The smell of lemons can also reduce stress. The perfect way to kick off any morning… stress free! Talk about MAGICAL!
Directions: Chop the ginger root (I use half of a large root) and infuse it into boiling water for ten to twenty minutes. (I boil approximately 2 cups of water.)
This helps in transferring the active ingredients into the water.
Then slice up 1-2 lemons and mix it all together in your favorite pitcher. I store mine in the fridge! You could drink it as a hot “tea” as well. I typically refill the pitcher one time before making the lemon ginger water recipe again. Easy!
