Tip #14: Make green tea part of your daily routine
By now you’re all on the healthy bandwagon of green smoothies but there’s another green drink that can boost your health – green tea! The health benefits are amazing:
- contains cancer fighting antioxidants (EGCG)
- stimulates metabolism
- boosts energy
- improves immune function
- can lower cholesterol levels
- can prevent tooth decay
- improves bone health
Here are a few of my favorites:
As a mid-morning snack I brewed a cup of the Yogi “Goji Berry” tea and had two no-bake cookies that I just whipped up.
These little bites were so good! I started with two GF graham crackers, ground up; mixed with 1 TBSP of the nut butter I made yesterday…
Sunflower seeds, pepitas and pistachios- not very smooth but great taste! Then for the cookies I added 2 tsp honey, 1 chopped date, 2 chopped dried plums, topped with chia seeds.
Now it’s back to work. Lots to get done before my Tone & Sculpt class this afternoon (including planning what to teach)! Let’s hope I didn’t scare anyone with last week’s class and they’ll be back today 🙂
