This was written on my blog in January 2013 but wanted to reshare for my followers.
Are you a snacker? Eating food throughout the day, not necessarily because you are hungry but for something to do? This is me and I want to stop it!
Laurel House has a great solution. I first came across Laurel House a few years ago on Facebook. She is a Spokesperson for Ubisoft “Your Shape” and also known as well as ” Quickie Chick”.
I have always loved reading her website http://quickiechick.com and she has fabulous eating and health tips as well as everyday tips.
I have tried her ” special tea” before and actually quite enjoyed it. It is suppposed to be fat burning, metabolism burning and natural detoxing tea so I decided to put it to the test.
This is the recipe for the tea:
Special Tea” Recipe: http://quickiechick.com/2012/03/special-tea/
1 mug hot water – adds to your 8 daily cups of water, fills you up and flushes you out
1 entire Lemon (squeezed, then scrap out the fabulous fibrous pulp)- natural fat burner
1-3 shakes Cinnamon powder- helps regulate blood sugar levels and curb hunger
1-3 shakes Cayenne Pepper powder- natural fat-melter
At about 3 pm today, in between breakfast and lunch, I was thinking of looking for something to snack.
Knowing that I am not hungry and was trying to fill a non-existent craving, I made this tea instead.
It is very good tasting and only two sips in, I already feel no interest in snacking. The cayenne pepper gives the tea a bit of a kick, the lemon and water are refreshing and cinnamon is just yummy.
If you are craving and reaching for food when you know you don’t really need to, make this tea. I love it myself .
