Start your day off well!

Posted in Recipes, Weight Loss at 7:39 pm by Dr Michelle Torrance ND, LAc

I just thought I’d share my favorite morning drink:

16 oz hot water
2 packets True Lemon (unsweetened) or a 1/4 of a squeezed fresh lemon
Vanilla Stevia, a few drops to taste

It’s a little tart, a little sweet and gets things moving in the digestive sense. It leaves you with a clean taste and just makes your day start a little more nicely. If that isn’t reason enough, let me give you one more: that’s 16 oz of fluid that goes towards your water goal!

Remember, to lose weight well you must, must, must drink your water! 1/3 of your body weight in ounces should be your minimum goal!

    Is there a limit to how much chicken broth I can have?
    This stuff is fat free and is only 10 calories in a cup.
    They have a low sodium option also that might be better.

      Fat free, low sodium broth is fine while in plan. It is, of course, a great thing to make soup with, but it’s even better if you want to “pan fry” a food. You can use it in place of oil. It’s also useful when poaching egg whites or fish.
