A Happy Morning Recipe
Honey + Lemon + Water = Delicious
Of course, the above equation is of my own opinion, but nevertheless, warm honey lemon water is a surprisingly satisfying addition to your early morning routine.
The happy morning recipe goes like this:
- Your favorite mug
- A big spoonful of honey (preferably local, raw and organic)
- 1/2 of a lemon (start with 1/4 until you’re used to the taste)
Fill your mug with warm water. Stir until honey is melted. Add a splash of cold water as needed for a comfortable temperature. Sip. Enjoy. Repeat.
*The higher the quality of the ingredients, the more beneficial the mixture.
