While I am unwell I have decided to learn about diet and particularly detox. I figured a good place to start would be investigating the health benefits of tea and coffee.
I first began drinking tea and coffee around the age of 29. Mostly because I enjoyed being able to “have a cuppa” socially. I still like the idea of drinking tea and coffee but I don’t think I actually like it?! There are many varied opinions about drinking coffee and weight loss but considering that I don’t really love it I am going to cut tea and coffee out for the time being. Perhaps I will go herbal tea shopping and drink something with some nutritional benefits. I found this little article about the effects of coffee on your weight loss. Please let me know if you know any other interesting bits of information about this topic.
I found that loose leaf tea as opposed to tea bags, has greater concentrations of the good stuff so perhaps the old teapot will become well loved in our household. Here are just some of the herbal teas you can drink:
St John’s wort
masala chai spices
Of course, black tea has health benefits too but if I can try something new, why not?
Healthy idea! I think I will purchase myself a lemon myrtle tree again. I had one years ago but it died as a result of my lack of gardening efforts. I could just pop a leaf in a cup of boiling water and enjoy!
Time to detox!
