In additon to breakfast, another issue I have always had with Paleo (or any diet) is the copious amounts of water you are supposed to drink. I will be really good about the 64oz of water for a few days, but then I fall back into old habits, because I get sick of drinking water.
And when I write that I feel like the whiniest bitch on the planet, since so much of the world can only dream of having an unlimited supply of clean, cool water. (Note to self-next week gratitude journal).
So I still need to get the water in because it keeps me hydrated, flushes the system, aids weight loss and the other 8 billion reasons a person needs water. So instead of water, I make myself detox tea.
I have a Mrs. Tea that I use, and for the amount of iced tea that I drink, it was really worth the $15 investment. However, if you do not have an iced tea maker, just buy tea and follow the directions on the box.
This tea is so simple, its barely a recipe, more like instructions:
1. Prepare decaf green tea according to manufacture’s direction. (I have used other types of tea- but green tea has some special weight loss property I hear about)
2. When preparing the pitcher of ice, add,
1/2 cucumber, sliced
1 lemon sliced
1 citrus fruit of your choice, sliced. (If using a grapefruit, use 1/2)
And thats it. Its quick and really delicious. I make a 3 qt pitcher and often finish it in a day. And if you want to skip the detox affect and add some Absolut Limon or Citron, I’m not going to tell on you.
