- Add a cup of green tea to your breakfast – Besides being loaded with powerful antioxidants, green tea gives your metabolism a solid boost. Furthermore, drinking a warm beverage with your meal aids in digestion. My favorite line of teas is, hands down, Yogi. They make really diverse and tasty tea combinations!
- Add cinnamon to your foods and beverages – Cinnamon has been shown to have powerful medicinal properties; it is helps at regulating blood sugar which can be beneficial for diabetics and for weight managements. Try adding a little cinnamon to your coffee and you will be in for a treat! You can also take cinnamon extract in pill form–Get it at a really good deal at Vitamin Shoppe!
- Swap processed oil with coconut oil for cooking – Most oils don’t fare well when used for cooking at high heat, coconut oil is one of the few oils that maintain most of its healthful properties even when used at high heats. Also it simply tastes great, and studies have shown that populations with high consumption of coconut oil are amongst the healthiest in the world. Carrington Farms is the brand of coconut oil that I use, and it has a really nice subtle flavor.
