One of my favourite ways to start the day is with what I have been affectionately referring to as “turbo tea”. I must admit…the name comes purely from a love of alliteration, but since one of the ingredients on the list is the Herbalife Thermojetics Concentrate, I reckon that “turbo” is a safe description.
As a coffee drinker I am the first to understand how hard it is to get out of the morning coffee habit. If nothing else, coffee drinkers like myself attach a romanticism to it, which far outweighs the energy benefits of the caffeine boost in the first place.
You wake up.
You have your coffee.
You are ready for the day.
There is a loveliness to the ritual.
I must admit that personally this was one of the hardest health changes for me to make. Not because I really “need” the coffee, but because I need the ritual.
I have, however, managed to exchange it for something else and I must admit that the change has brought with it a kind of glowing state of content. I of course have no scientific reason to give you for the change, I can only admit that I am quite enjoying my coffee replacement.
Now, the Herbalife Thermojectics Herbal Concentrate is an excellent product on its own, but after reading up on the benefits of apple cider vinegar I came up with my turbo tea.
1 mug boiling water
1 thick slice of lemon
1 serving of original Herbalife Thermojetics Herbal Concentrate powder
1 splash of organic apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
I find that this drink makes a great replacement for the morning coffee ritual. The strong flavours are somehow energising and relaxing at the same time. I can’t help but feel as if I am doing my body a favour by feeding it this concoction, which is gentle on my stomach and pleasant to taste.
Do you have a favourite healthy wake-up drink?
I do believe that it is very important to make sure that you never get bored of the products we use to keep us healthy so I’m always looking for new ways to spice things up a little. Usually I drink my thermo plain, which is great, but because it’s citrus season here in the Eastern Cape I’ve been adding orange slices to my usual multiple cups of thermo tea. It’s amazing what something as simple as a slice of orange (yes – orange!) can do to subtly change the flavour of this already refreshing drink. Try it. And then tell me if you think it’s yummy!
