  • Why do I like it?

I have been starting my day drinking warm water with lemon for several years now.  After reading this article from mindbodygreen, I decided to add turmeric and cinnamon.  It helps move fluids through the body and is a great way to start the day.

  • What did I change from the mindbodygreen recipe?

I add some virgin coconut oil to help my body absorb the spices.  I use a glass mug and straw as the lemon can be staining on your teeth.   I also follow the directions from Food Babe (see link above) about mixing in room temperature water then hot water to avoid damaging the enzymes in the lemon.
