As a rule of thumb I typically say… the hotter, the better!I No, I’m not one of those people that carries around a bottle of Tapatio in her purse ( though I’ll admit I used to be ), but I’m not gonna pretend I haven’t pulled out a shaker of cayenne pepper a time or two… or ten. I definitely prefer things on the spicy side… esp my drinks! So, when it comes to heat, I say… bring it!
I like to drink a TON of water. Like, a ton. Good luck finding me without my favorite sippy cup in hand. I mean, we all know it’s pretty much the best thing you can do for your body, but regular old H2O can be SUCH a bore!! Like, Snoozefest 2014. I like to mix it up so that I’m sure to get in plenty of liquids, yet don’t die of boredom.
My bevies of choice, you ask…? I have two! The first is water with a splash of lemon and a
little bit LOT of cayenne pepper mixed in. It’s seriously such a tasty treat and packs some serious health benies. Number two is iced green tea, a splash of lemon, a couple drops of stevia extract, and a generous sprinkle of cayenne ← sooooooooo yum!!
So… why should you incorporate cayenne into your diet. First and foremost, it’s freaking delish, but even more importantly it can majorly amp up your health game. Cayenne pepper contains hefty amounts of vitamins A, E, C, K, and B6. If that’s not convincing enough, check out some of its other insane benefits…
So drink up and spill… what’s your healthy drink of choice?
