A Favourite Yummy Tummy Elixir!

May 14, 2021

I gave up Coffee –> I swapped to Earl Grey Tea –> these new meds have left me finding another warm drink!! This is when I found the Tummy Elixir and made my own yummy tummy drink.

I decided to find this drink as I have been feeling weighed down and sluggish. The combination of these drinks has helped me cleanse my body and make me feel a little like a wide pony!! I have tried so many detox drinks over the years to my health regime because as toxins leave my body, I feel clear-headed and energized. Plus, recipes like this one don’t require a blender or juicer, so they are simple and easily accessible.

This is a yummy and VERY EASY beverage recipe that takes only a minute to prepare and includes key ingredients for natural detoxification, including lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon and lemon. It’s both refreshing and energizing, so give it a try today for the little boost (or guy cleanser first thing in the morning).

Why Drink the Yummy Tummy Drink?

Unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to avoid the everyday chemicals that threaten our health, especially when they seem to be everywhere. Pop, juices, pastas and most packaged foods. On top of that, we are constantly exposed to environmental pollutants, and dangerous chemicals in our foods like heavy metals, pesticides and preservatives

This beautiful drink contains some of the best ingredients for detoxification.ACV – Apple Cider Vinegar has shown to support our metabolism and digestive function, while working to cleanse your liver and lymphatic system.

Lemon juice has an alkaline effect on your body and helps to regulate your pH levels. Drinking lemon water or adding it to your drinks and juice may help boost your energy levels, detoxify your body, keep skin glowing and improve immune function.

Cinnamon (and ginger) contains therapeutic compounds that help to reduce inflammation, aid digestion and boost your metabolism, which is a helpful step toward weight loss. That’s why drinking ginger tea, for example, is so popular. It contains valuable compounds that boost your health and promote detoxification.

The other option (which I always add) is raw honey. I like to add good quality – raw honey to this beautiful drink because it’s a nutrient-dense natural sweetener.  It adds a little sweetness to this drink while nourishing the body with antioxidants.

How to Make the Yummy Tummy Drink

The first step in making my secret detox drink is to warm 12 to 16 ounces of water.

Now all you have to do is add your ingredients. Start by adding 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to your warm water.

Then stir in ½ to 1 teaspoon of ground ginger (optional) , 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (a MUST) and a dash of cayenne pepper (optional).

The last two ingredients are 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of raw, local honey, which is optional, but will add a little sweetness to your drink.

Stir it all together, and your detox drink is ready to enjoy. I like to have it when it’s still warm, but you can drink it at any temperature.

ENJOY!!

14 – Weeks, Hello Second Trimester!

Well, as the weeks roll on this really do begin to feel more real! The bump is NOT getting much bigger (well, by the end of the day it is) and I really have not taken my side photo's since Week 12 - part of me forgot and part of me just wanted to get through our 12...

The First Trimester…where has the time gone?!

THE FIRST TRIMESTER .... where has the time gone?? Let me start by saying - this is WAY over-due. I felt I was really on a roll with writing down my notes and thoughts throughout the IVF Journey and even in the early weeks of this pregnancy.....then somewhere along...
