Recently, I’ve been drinking hot water with lemon & fresh ginger every morning. And I love it. And you may love it too. This is what I do if you want to try it.
Use paring knife to peel back the skin of the ginger (it comes off easily).
Slice ginger thinly (but it doesn’t really matter!).
Cut a small lemon in half. Squeeze into large mug.
Add ginger slices to the mug (to taste).
I always think more is better. I’ve become mildly obsessed with ginger. Calms your stomach, reduces stress and lemon is a natural anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety. Great if you’re trying to fit into something tight later that evening. Or if you’re heading to the beach. Or if you’re really into your well-being. Just positive vibes with the lemon ginger.
Add boiling hot water. Let sit/steep for a few minutes.
Drink! Do this first thing in the morning, the lemon is great to get your day going. .
Stuff I’m Into Right Now…
The Brooklyn Museum just closed a particularly awesome exhibit on March 1st titled, “Killer Heels.” I viewed last week and had a great time wandering the museum by myself with my iPhone gawking over all of these beautiful versions of heels from past and present. Video describing the exhibit is below.
Breakfasts recently. 1 egg yolk, 2 egg whites, 1/4 cup sparkling water, 1/2 cup oatmeal, cinnamon (LOTS!) cook on low heat in a small pan with cooking spray. Serve with sugar free maple syrup. Yum diet food ❤
Views of New York on the drive from Long Island City / Brooklyn.
Love in the star signs. Great. ❤
If you know me AT ALL, you know that I’ll basically try anything once. Especially something that will “improve” my health. If it’s expensive? BRING IT TO ME, NOW. I’ve learned a few lessons with regard to expensive health treatments… $8,000 later. I’m in the same exact boat that I was last year plus 10 lbs. GREAT, Ash. Great.
Anyway – I’m obsessed with tea. Drink it every single day since I fake gave up on coffee. Which means I “stopped drinking it” – which REALLY means that I still drink it whenever I want, but I 99% of the time will always choose tea over coffee if I’m in a coffee shop. Unless coffee is the only option (and I need caffeine, or somebody is offering and I feel obligated). That’s how you fake give up on something.
Tiny Tea is an all-natural tea that also comes in Gluten Free – who knew tea even had gluten? but OK! They sell it in different packs – 14 day teatox for $35.00, 28 day teatox for $55. (I obviously used a coupon code to get a discount on this bad boy). Some people think I’m insane for spending that much $ on tea but they’re actually idiots because I know a Chinese man who spends over $800.00 on green tea that lasts him about a month. He’s CRAZY! But that tea sure is amazing – TRUST.
The goal of the Tiny Teatox is to decrease bloating, detox your body and replenish your intestines back to their natural state. It claims to be great for energy, clear up your skin and an herbal cleanse without any laxative effect. You drink it 30 minutes before each meal. I drink a ton of tea so I didn’t really mind this at all. It kind of helps curb your appetite and it also tastes pretty normal which is a HUGE PLUS!
OBVI repping my “MALE TEARS” mug ❤ obsessed.
