I've never been a coffee person, usually I just get up, eat something and get ready for my workout. Lisa BartonNovember 24, 2012 at 11:51 AMI do this too but I didn't know about the cayenne, thanks for the tip!
But once I started doing warm water with a lemon first thing, I found myself craving it each morning.
The lemon water stimulates your liver to help with detoxing, and helps the digestive tract expel toxins.
Despite the fact that lemons may seem acidic they are actually very alkaline when they are digested in our body. One by keeping you hydrated and two, because they have pectin fiber which can help fill you up. I use a citrus juicer like the one shown below that I got at Target for $4 a few years back, but I can't find these days. Just cut the lemon in half, and carefully cut off the peel, leaving as much of the lemon as possible. Some people are worried about the lemon juice and the enamel on their teeth, so if this is a concern for you then you can use a straw. Pregnant mamas might really enjoy the anti-nausea benefits of the ginger, and for the rest of us, ginger is great for increasing circulation throughout the body.


I don't feel that stovetop warming is energy efficient so I microwave my water in a coffee cup and then add the lemon. Drinking lemon water will help increase the alkalintiy of our body, a key goal in decreasing inflammation and preventing disease. So here's some other alternatives: a plastic one from Amazon ($5) or a stainless steel one also on Amazon ($19). Warm water will not only be more gentle, it will also help stimulate your digestive tract even more. Kris Carr mentions adding a pinch of cayenne pepper to her warm water with a lemon each morning. Whether you're looking to reduce your carbon footprint, or add a new healthy habit to your morning routine, you've come to right place. And even better, my digestive system was super excited about it too because it gave me the kick in the pants (literally) to get out the food and waste from the day before and start fresh that day. Yes, this method is messy, but it will get much more juice out of the lemon than just cutting it in half and leaving the peel on.
My favorite green straw is a Glass Dharma Glass Straw (I use the "Beautiful Bends Smoothie Straw" $10).
The glass of water first thing will not only wake you up, it will give your body the hydration it needs to start the day.


So I've recently started adding, literally a pinch (or one shake) of cayenne pepper to my water each morning and I really like it. Here you'll find tips, products, and recipes that have helped me in my journey towards living a greener life. I resisted trying it for awhile because I figured it would taste like chili powder-water, but the tart lemon pairs well with the cayenne and they blend just fine together. Cayenne will help raise the temperature of your body to help with detoxing and to speed up your metabolism. I just found your blog while looking up links pertaining to vegan pregnancy and I'm really enjoying your posts!
I'm a big fan of her books and a lot of what she says is right in line with some of your tips and recipes, especially the lemon water.
