happy, healthy and hot all day!
Seriously, the way you start your day is so important. I always feel the more good stuff I can pack in right away, the better. (This doesn’t just pertain to nutrition…a quick workout and some positive thoughts are important too!)
So that’s why I start my day with these three drinks.
Now I realize this sounds like a lot of liquid. But you don’t need to chug it all at once. Here’s what I do…
🍋 Lemon water is the first thing I put into my body when I wake up. It’s easy to remember because before I go to bed I take a lemon out of the fridge and leave it on the counter with a lemon squeezer and knife. So there’s no excuse!
Lemon water gives you a nice dose of bioavailable vitamin C, which brightens the skin and supports production of collagen (There are tons of other benefits to vitamin C, I’m just naming some of my faves!) The scent of lemon is very energizing, and it’s a great way to hydrate when you first wake up.
Sometimes I’ll add an “extra” like a sprinkle of cayenne or a splash of ACV. Cayenne is known to give your metabolism a boost and ACV contains beneficial enzymes. But just straight lemon water is great.
☕️ I’ve always been a coffee lover, and now that I blend it with collagen peptides I know I’m giving my skin, hair, nails and body a boost. I blend my hot fresh coffee with a scoop of Further Food Collagen Peptides (use HAPPYHEALTHYANDHOT to get 10% off) and some other fun ingredients. But the peptides are really key here.
Collagen peptides have been shown to firm skin and strengthen hair and nails. They can give you a better body since they curb appetite, aid in muscle recovery and can even reduce cellulite. Doesn’t get much better!
In addition, coffee provides some antioxidants.
Not into coffee? Stir the collagen peptides into your tea.
🍵 A daily green drink is a habit that dates back to my vegan years. Some mornings I blend fresh greens, lemon and ginger in my Vitamix and feel like a total badass. On the days that’s just not happening, I use Organifi. And feel just as badass!
Organifi is a gently dried powdered blend of top notch organic ingredients including chlorella, spirulina, wheatgrass and ashwagandha. It looks like swamp water but tastes slightly minty and mildly sweet.
Green drinks, whether you blend them fresh or use a high quality one like Organifi, provide a hefty dose of vitamins and minerals. They can help to alkalize the body, and I find that they truly increase my energy. Sometimes I have one in the afternoon as a little pick me up instead of caffeine.
So can lemon water, collagen coffee and a green drink help you feel happy, healthy and hot? Absolutely!
You will be happy that you are getting your day off to a good start. All of these drinks are healthy and together they provide a wide variety of nutrients. This combo supports bright, firm skin, stronger nails and hair, and a fit body. So you’ll be hot for sure!
