Fat-Burning, Metabolism-Boosting, Detox “Special Tea” Recipe:

1 mug hot water – adds to your 8 daily cups of water, fills you up and flushes you out
1 entire Lemon (squeezed, then scrap out the fabulous fibrous pulp)- natural fat burner
1-3 shakes Cinnamon powder- helps regulate blood sugar levels and curb hunger
1-3 shakes Cayenne Pepper powder- natural fat-melter

I am sharing this detox tea I found on Pinterest.
I had a long day. A headache plagued me since I got out of bed this morning. I drank lots of water and took some Tylenol at lunch. By 3pm it was so bad I went to my favorite coffee shop and got my sugar free chai. And guess what… yup, I feel great now. Everything I needed to do all day I got done in the last 2 hours. /sigh Now I know what is the “problem.” And I hate to think about the “solution.” I feel great with all the juice and will be looking for more recipes to switch things up a bit. I will go to Sprouts tomorrow for more fruits and veggies. I am off to look up some juice recipes!

    Aww, that's too bad, but I'm glad you're feeling better. Great job with continuing on though! You should try EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). I've gotten headaches before that have gone away thanks to EFT, I find it really helpful. :) Keep it up!

    Thank you for the tea recipe!

    I will try this tomorrow for sure.

    Ginger added to juices might help the headaches.

    Day three is the day for headaches and possibly day 4!

    Glad it finally went away though!
