Food Coma Recovery and Detox
The weather girl predicts the temperature here today will not get above 4 degrees and tomorrow won’t be much better.
Add to that, it’s the day after Christmas and we all feel a little funky. The tummy and head are a little wonky from over indulging in foods we don’t typically eat and an abundance of alcohol. I don’t like having ‘off’ days where my energy is low and I’m entertaining the thought of spending the day on the couch.
Benefits of Warm Lemon Water
The solution? A cup of warm lemon water first thing in the morning. The vitamins and minerals in the lemons will get your digestion back on track, give you an energy boost, and improve your mood.
Dr. Axe says lemon juice has a similar structure to the digestive juices found in the stomach and plays a role in helping the liver create bile. The bile keeps the food moving through the system which helps relieve indigestion or an upset stomach. Keeping a cup of warm lemon water handy to sip on throughout the day is Step One on the road to food coma recovery.
Plus warm lemon water is soothing and easier to get down on a 4 degree morning than ice water is.
