First thing first- I love my coffee first thing in the morning. Like, LOVE. Just read this post for proof. That being said, it is going to take practically a miracle drink to make me drink anything other than coffee first thing when I wake up. This drink that I am about to describe is basically a miracle potion that naturally gives you energy, boosts your immune system, flushes out toxins, helps with digestion, is extremely hydrating, and even whitens your teeth! I gave it a go a few weeks ago and I was immediately hooked. Here is the deal:
-Warm up a mug full of water (make it warm, but not hot)
-Pour in 1-2 tablespoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar
-Juice from half a lemon
-A teaspoon (or two!) of honey
And that is it. Give it a little stir and sip on it like you would tea. Wait a few hours and see how you feel. For me, I noticed how good it made me feel the first day or two of drinking it. It is a great way to kickstart your day and get your body going. The key is to drink it first thing in the morning though, so yes, that cup of coffee will have to wait. My current routine is to drink this first thing (about 3-4 times a week) then drink my mug of black coffee with breakfast before leaving for work. If you give it a try, come back here and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. P.S. the mug is from The Created Co. and is one of my favorites. Drinking out of a cute mug makes morning that much better.
