So how was your holiday break? Mine was filled with food. Lots of food. Most of them were junk food. If like me, part of your new year’s resolution is to lose what all that binging had left behind, here’s a fiber-filled power detox drink to jump start your 2013 tummy cleanse!
This drink called “The Fiber Flush Green Tea” is courtesy of My from My Healthy Dish. I used to do something similar although instead of green tea, I only used plain lemon + honey juice with chia and ginger. I loved the addition of cayenne pepper which you can find in lots of other detox diet recipes and drinks — but because I didn’t have it, I used a teaspoon of my green smoothie powder instead.
A tbsp. of Chia Seeds
2 cups hot water
1 green tea bag
1 slice lemon
1 tsp. of sliced ginger
1 tsp. of honey
a dash of cayenne pepper
If you haven’t heard of chia seeds before, it’s time you do! These tiny black beads are packed with omega 3 and anti-oxidants. They’re also high in fiber (and that means a ‘smooth’ exit to whatever is stuck in your tummy!). Once mixed with water, they turn jelly-like which makes them look scary. But don’t worry because chia seeds have a very subtle, almost non-existent taste.
My suggests drinking 3 cups of this in a day or if you want to take it daily, just one cup a day. It’s supposed to help with bloatedness and indigestion. A personal tip from me, though, is to make sure that the nearest toilet won’t require you to sprint because this baby can sure stir a storm!
So seriously now, how was your holiday?
