I just greeted you in South African language! Yes because that’s where I will be, in one-week time! I’m attending a wedding and I’m super excited!
Even if I’m going for a super short time, unfortunately, I imagine I’m gonna eat a lot, and probably drink. You know, celebration time!
So in the meantime I’m preparing my tummy and detoxing my body.
I have to admit though, this is not my recipe but it’s too good not to share. It’s from the amazing blog of Angela Liddon, Oh She Glow.
At first it’s a weird taste but then somehow you can’t get enough of it. I have many different feelings towards this drink, but overall, I love it!
It’s great for detoxing because contains the well-known turmeric (to refresh your memory, click here –link to post-); cayenne pepper, which helps digestion, boost metabolism, support weight loss and detox; apple cider vinegar, which as well aids in weight loss, helps control blood sugar and tummy troubles; lemon juice, a digestive aid and liver cleanser; ginger which helps relieving digestive problems, lower cholesterol level as well as blood sugar.
Ok, now you understand why is this so amazing? I normally drink it after dinner, to help me digest before to go to bed.
Ingredients (I modified it a bit!):
2tbsp. apple cider vinegar
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
1tsp. ground turmeric
a pinch cayenne pepper
maple syrup, to taste
Put all the ingredients in a cafetiere or in a teapot and add boiled water. Whisk well and pour it in cups! :) voilat!
(I use a cafetiere because with the filter plunger I can mix it all up again when it's ready to drink and it also keeps all the bits from going into the cup)

Happy Monday and Have a wonderful week everyone!
