Two herbal teas I'm super into lately...
For an afternoon pick-me-up, I'm loving Turmeric Ginger @rishitea. Warming, spicy, but surprisingly (and happily) a little sweet at the end of every sip. The tea bag has big pieces of organic ginger, orange peel, and bright yellow turmeric - all have powerful anti-inflammatory powers 💪🏻I CRAVE this tea...never had that with a tea before.
And for my post-dinner tea, I'm digging Bengal Spice @celestialtea to which I add a few glugs of almond milk and bit of liquid stevia so it has a creamy, chai-esque dessert vibe. It actually satisfies my need for a little sweet after a meal - lots of cinnamon, carob (tastes chocolatey), ginger, and nutmeg.
I'm always up for trying something new - what's your favorite herbal tea? Do tell!

Making my own spice mix to use mostly on curries, but really anything you can think of. Consists of non measured amounts of cumin, coriander, ginger, turmeric, chili pepper, onion, garlic, mustard seed, cinnamon powders, fennel and black nigela seeds. I'm adding it on a creamy kale dish I'm making right now. #antiinflammatoryspices #alltheflavors #lovinovennutrition

Get on the Golden Grind ✌🏻️#goldengrind #turmeric #blackpepper #antiinflammatoryspices

Turmeric shot. Turmeric is an extremely powerful herb with many healing properties. Most beneficial for me being that it's a powerful anti-inflammatory.
Apple cider vinegar. I often have a cup of green tea with a squeeze of Lemon and a dash of apple cider vinegar to add digestion. Or on hot days I actually fill up a big drink bottle of iced water with 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar. It's actually really refreshing to sip on. 😊👍🏼

Love adding Cinnamon to my morning coffee. Cinnamon is great for adding a touch of sweetness without adding sugar. Its full of antioxidants, has Anti- Inflammatory properties and has been shown to improve Sensitivity to the hormone Insulin. Wow and what a great taste it gives! I'm sure you have some in your kitchen! #cinnamon #coffee #healthyheart #happylife❤️ #bloodsugar #antiinflammatoryspices #healthyhabits #goodmorning

Turmeric juice; anti- inflammatory. The coconut water makes this healing juice a winner!

Awww....the spices of life!
This is how most of my salads start out.....covered in spices.
Then I usually dress them with some EVOO and balsamic.
I use fresh turmeric and ginger in my turmeric golden milk and in smoothies. .

Don't forget the Spices!
Spices have been used for centuries for health and healing. They have so many anti-inflammatory properties!
I use spices on almost everything.
They are an important part of my anti-inflammatory diet. .

Intermittent Fasting working on the weekend too.

2 weeks not eating my first calories until about noon or 1pm. Was 4lbs. Down.
4 days of intermittent Fasting no calories for 16 hours.... down 2 more pounds.
I do feel like my metabolism has kicked in! .

Yesterday was 2nd day of Intermittent fasting. I had a strawberry and banana smoothie with coconut oil and ground chia at 12:45 pm. Plate of veggies and hummus deviled eggs at about 4:00pm.
Omelette and avocado finishing last bite at 8:37pm haha!
Feeling good with lots of energy this morning.
I am going to make some cookies... but I better wait until closer to 12:30 or 1:00pm😂

. .

Afternoon snack at about 4:00pm. Some veggies and dip. That dip is dairy free made with coconut milk plain yogurt with anti-inflammatory spices mixed in. Garlic and onion powder, oregano, basil, coriander, Pink Himalayan sea salt, and black pepper. .

Starting Intermittent fasting.
I have actually not been eating breakfast the last couple of weeks and actually have more energy and have lost 4 Lbs, so thought why not try the intermittent fasting.
Going to do the 16/8.
Eat my first meal at 1:00pm small snack at 4:00pm and last meal at 8:00pm since we eat later in the summer. Nothing after 9:00 pm until 1:00pm the next day.
I can still have my coffee in the morning or this wouldn't even be a consideration. 😂😂
Will still have plenty of water, green tea, and matcha tea, with no sugar of course, during the 16 hours. .
