Good Morning Sunshine

Good Morning Sunshine

So the very first thing my digestive system gets to play with is an amazing concoction of lemon (or lime) and tolerably hot water. I find setting myself up properly for the day makes a huge difference to how smoothly things roll in the craziness that can take over!

Let's be clear, I am not claiming drinking lemon water will solve all your health concerns. Like just about everything there is research for and against the benefits of my favorite morning drink. So I squeeze 1/4-1/2 a lemon in the warmest water I drink without scalding myself.

The lemon serves a few purposes....

  1. It's alkalizing in our body which helps combat the highly acidc diet we have grown to know and love. Acid overload leads to inflammation and inflammation leads to disease.
  2. You get a nice big hit of Vitamin C which most of us are seriously lacking.
  3. Helps your detoxifying organs ie your liver and kidneys clear out the nasties 

The water.....

  1. Well obviously the elixir of life, we are 90% of the stuff and after sleeping we have exhaled and processed a solid amount so it's nice to restock
  2. Those of you trying to lose some fat....you need significant amounts of water for fat metabolism. Cheers to that!
  3. Warm water is extremely good for digestion and in particular keeping you regular. Having a glass of tolerably hot water on an empty tummy can have an almost laxative effect. 

In winter it is very comfy cosy and in summer it's super refreshing.

Bottoms up!
