MORNING METABOLISM

” SIP WITH JOY RIGHT AFTER YOU WAKE UP  EVERYDAY  AND MAKE EASIER FOR YOUR BODY TO BURN FAT”

Metabolism is responsible for our basic energy needs. We always blame our weight gain and health problems for slow metabolism. It is a natural process that converts food and drink into energy. Besides burning calories by exercise and daily routine work try these early morning boosting metabolism drinks for increased energy and weight loss.

Drinking  water is the first thing we all do when we wake up. It increases metabolic rate and brain power. By adding these ingredients the properties of water get amazing. Here is my solution to early morning drinks.

HONEY WATER
Honey does wonders,with a dash of cinnamon it gives the perfect hint of flavor.
1cup hot water
1tsp honey
¼ tsp cinnamon

HONEY WATER
Have  some delicious juicy grapefruit/orange for a healthy dose of vitamin C

 

TURMERIC BOASTER TEA
Raw turmeric has amazing health and nutritional benefits. It has an earthy flavor. Grate this strong antioxidant and use it often. Add it in your cooking, blend it in your smoothies or have it as a morning drink.

Back home I remember having turmeric in a glass as a “Haldi doodh”
That golden color latte was very soothing and comforting. So, trust me this one drink will do a lot for your body and over all wellness.

LEMON WATER

Lemon has extraordinary  properties.This particular drink have always been circulating around with its unlimited benefits. Hot or cold drink it regularly. Lemon naturally flushes away all the toxins, boast immune system and maintain a healthy weight.

Infused your water with lemon slices,few springs of mint&some freshly grated ginger!

 

GREEN JUICE
Most of us adopt the concept of juices loaded with amazing properties but the key is when to consume it and absorb the most nutrients. We should  start our day with a  GREEN JUICE. In this way you are not only hydrating your body but also cleaning up your cloudy brain. It gives all the energy to R.O.C.K Y.O.U.R D.A.YIMG_0384
Keep switching  the vegetables(cucumber, celery, green leaves, ginger, kale, granny smith apple, parsley)

Here I have used half cucumber/half granny smith-apple, celery stick, dash of ginger and some lemon juice.

 

 

 

COCONUT WATERIMG_0302
When you are hydrated your day begins with a great start. Coconut water has loads of potassium, it prevents bloating. DRINK MORE, DETOXIFY YOUR BODY & INCREASE   YOUR METABOLISM

 

 

 

TEA/COFFEE

CAFFEINE the power energizer of the day. We can never imagine to start our day without it RIGHT?????? 🙂 In addition to give your metabolism a boost an early morning cup of coffee/tea/herbal alternatives is capable of not only boasting your metabolism but good for concentration and energy levels. We don’t need to make it a meal and have many cups through out the day as it reduces appetite.Avoid adding too much milk and refined sugar.

 

EARLY MORNING POWER WASH
Your morning routine needs to be nutrient dense and relaxant at the same time. So, get a pitcher h2o and infuse it with your favorite fruits and greens. Once infused you will enjoy this flavorful  water. For a quick Detox, I love to prepare this after an indulgent vacation/long weekends and cleanse my body from what i had earlier to beat bloating.

QUICK & EASY….15 minutes or overnight your choice!

There  is no harm  in staring your day with Caffeine but try to incorporate any of these these drinks in your morning routine,boost your immune system and get energy from natural alternatives.

 

 

 

Kitchen Tricks ( Raw turmeric freezes well i grate mine with skin and freeze.In this way it is ready to use all the time.Same goes for lemons you find a good deal,get them. Store the zest,juice or cut them in slices/quarters arrange them in a tray once frozen, put them in Ziploc. Have your own supply of lemons. No more artificial lemon juice or half  of  lemon sitting lonely in the fridge and waiting for his turn to be used. Slices are so convenient and handy for your drinks.)
