Spicy Lemon Ginger Turmeric Water
In the podcast we take on a monthly challenge every 30 days related to a specific habit and then we discuss all the details of how we did with the habit and how our experiences may help others to get going on improving their own habits.
In the first month, the challenge was to make your bed each day, floss your teeth each day and…..drink more water. I did very well with the first two but had a few more challenges when it came to drinking more water.
One thing that did help me get more water into my body though, was this delicious, flavourful recipe for spicy lemon ginger turmeric water.
It seems a bit like a fun cocktail rather than plain old boring water and so it really helped me to increase my daily fluid intake and I thought that you might like to try it too!
Good for improving digestion and reducing inflammation
Lemon, ginger and cayenne will all help your guts to be a bit happier by helping with digestion and turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. So not only are you improving your hydration by getting more fluid in, but you get these added benefits.
