I found this on IG a couple of days ago and gave it a try last night after buying some lemon and ginger at the store yesterday.
I modified it a bit – leaving out the 1 tsp of honey & a dash of cayenne pepper but you can most definitely add the two if you want.
Here’s what is needed for the drink:
- A green tea bag steeped in a mug of hot water
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp thinly sliced ginger
- juice from 1/3-1/2 of a lemon
I ate the ginger & the chia seeds – but I don’t think you have to eat the ginger.
I drank one ‘flush mug’ last night and plan to drink 3 servings today and than go back to one serving each day after today.
Oh and check out my AWESOME finds from the 99 cent store yesterday! In a regular grocery store each one of these items could cost $3-5 each so I really consider my trip there to be a SUCCESS!! I really do need to go there more often! They had my favorite Mrs. Dash seasoning in Fiesta Lime & Extra Spicy and after seeing seeing Planter’s NUT-rition on several other blogs I’ve been meaning to give them a try and am excited to try them out now!
A quick glimpse of Christmas 2012
Before attending church on Christmas Eve, we decided to have lunch at River City Brewery. I ordered their ABC Sandwich - on focacia bread with sliced turkey breast, avocado, bacon, tomato, white cheddar, pesto aioli, and onions, served with vegetable pasta salad. Unfortunately, it looked and sounds better than it tastes, it was just okay to me.
Isn’t she lovely?
Man, I love these two!!
After church, we cruised around and enjoying looking at the Christmas lights in a nearby neighborhood than we ended the evening with a movie at home and a bottle of champagne.
We spent the day at my parent’s house and my mom made an amazingly delicious brunch for all of us, which consisted of beans, potatoes, tamales, salsa, chili verde and eggs – it really couldn’t get any better than that!
Mila enjoyed opening all her presents at Grandma & Grandpa’s …I think this one was her favorite, though!
