In keeping with one of my quarter-year resolutions, I have adopted a few new healthy habits. In fact, I have a “100 Tips for a Better Body Book” and I’m slooooowly adding a few of the suggestions into my daily routine. (Let’s not discuss the fact that I’ve had this book at least two years and am about half-way through!)
One of the first tips recommends substituting your morning coffee with a cup of hot water mixed with juice from half a lemon. (Sounds terrible, doesn’t it??) Since I live in the middle of a lemon garden I thought I’d give it a try. I’ve done this for almost one week now, and ya know…whatever. I feel no better-no worse-no less tired-no less awake, and it doesn’t taste as disastrous as it sounds!
But, and I am admitting this only to you, my friends, I cheated. I did. Instead of substituting the hot lemon water for my morning coffee, I added the lemon water to my morning beverage buffet.
Oh, come on! What would you do?
Hot Lemon Water
Cappuccino from Il Cedro
I never claimed to have will power!
However, on the positive side, there is now evidence proving your morning joe is good for you!
So, what about you? Are you a one-cup-a-day drinker, a day-long sipper, or a hot lemon water kind of morning person?
Let’s compare notes!
