About this recipe
I never thought I would give up drinking coffee in the morning (I was a big coffee addict), but it did happen. My favorite morning drink right now is lemon water with ginger and cayenne, and I love it! Lemon helps deeply hydrate the body and supports detoxification, and ginger and cayenne stimulate digestion and metabolism and help the body burn more fat. Besides, all three ingredients have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, so give this water a try!
3-4 slices fresh ginger root
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
Stevia to taste (I use NOW Foods BetterStevia Liquid)
1. Place ginger in a tea cup or mug and add hot filtered water. Allow to steep for 3-5 minutes.
2. Add lemon juice, cayenne and stevia to taste. Stir well and sip slowly.
