Christmas Detox Latte

by Coach Tonya Fines

Green Tea will help you lose weight!  Red Tea will boost your immune system!  Herbal Tea will facilitate a detox!  What if you could have ALL 3 in one delicious drink  . . . while still enjoying the holiday season!

This is not a snake oil “pitch,” this is not the latest, greatest nutrition trend, this is not some cool fad all wrapped up in rainbows and sunflowers.

What is it then?

Well, it’s very, very old actually and it’s been around for years, yet has, for the most part, flown under the radar in all that it can do.

And the best part?

You only need is about 5 minutes each morning to brew up this cup of health that will help you to feel energized, revitalized and allow your body to detox efficiently during the holiday season.

Want more good news?

It costs less than a cup of Starbucks and packs a much more powerful and healthful punch!

The holidays are meant to be enjoyed and that usually means getting together with family and friends that we often do not get to spend time with throughout the course of the year.

It also means . . . INDULGENCE!  Yes, the holidays bring out everyone’s BEST in seasonal treats and gourmet delights and who DOESN’T want to  enjoy all those things?!?!?

However, too many times we get caught up in telling ourselves how “bad” it all is for us and how “we just can’t do that anymore” or worse yet, denying ourselves just till everyone else is asleep and then sneaking into the kitchen to BINGE . . . yeah, like not any one of us has ever done that before!

But what if it was possible to not only allow yourself to enjoy some of your old time favorites this holiday season, while also doing something else that helped to support your best health?  Sounds too good to be true?  Well it’s not . . . keep reading . . .

The truth is that our body is brilliant at doing what it needs to balance, detox, absorb and flush what it does and what it does not need.  However, sometimes the body gets bogged down a bit in all of this due to a massive onslaught of “here come the goodies!!!”

When we hit our system with that full on frontal assault of all those things that taste good that we only get during special occasions, we often OVER do it and that usually ends up with us not feeling all that well, feeling bloated and sometimes a lot of time spent in the bathroom instead of in celebration with our family.

What if you could change all this to include something that not only helped support your body’s natural detoxification process and healthy liver function, but also tasted like another decadent treat?  Yeah . . . I know what you are thinking . . . prove it!

Here is one of my holiday favorites that I want to share with you.  To be honest it’s not just a holiday favorite, I just happen to incorporate this a lot more during the holidays because I do tend to find myself “dipping” into sweets and treats more frequently than any other time of the year.

I’m not saying, nor am I suggesting this is to be abused as far as “stuff yourself with everything that’s unhealthy and it will cancel out every bad food decision you make.”  Not quite what I’m getting at here.  However, adding this to your diet will help support what your body already does on its own by supporting it during a season of eating where it can become overwhelmed with a lot of stuff that it is not used to and end up causing you some digestive discomfort.

So . . . you’re tired of reading and you want the answer already?!  Here you go . . .
