I recently stopped drinking coffee in the morning. I still have a cup once in awhile, but not everyday. Maybe once a week, maybe. We should all try to have a glass of cold water first thing in the morning, but if you need something else (like me!) try these two tea recipes.
The chai is warm and yummy, might be a good replacement for your coffee. Experimenting with amounts of ingredients will result in your new favorite tea. Trust me.
The ginger tea is refreshing and soothes your throat. There are many benefits to adding ginger to your diet. It is anti-inflammatory, helping with joint pain, it reduces congestion in nose/throat, and it helps with nausea. Let’s look at ginger this way, if you are feeling blue, have some ginger. Seriously, it’s awesome. Buy whole ginger roots, peel the skin off, and place in the freezer. It will last months this way. Simply take the root out and peel some off each time you need it.
Sprinkle some cinnamon and ginger in the bottom of mug. Add tea. Pour boiling water over tea, filling mug halfway. Allow to steep for 4-5 minutes. Add milk and a drizzle of maple syrup. Stir and enjoy. Simple. Creamy. Delicious.

Using a vegetable peeler, place 3 slices of ginger and lemon slice in mug. Fill with boiling water. Allow to steep 3-4 minutes, add a drizzle of honey. Stir. Enjoy. Feel good.
