Metabolism Tea Morning Routine

Metabolism Tea recipe that uses apple cider vinegar | Simple Green Smoothies

Boost your metabolism naturally with this healing Metabolism Tea recipe. It will naturally suppress hunger and kick start the fat burning process.

There’s no secret here. To get your metabolism ramped up, you just need what we’ve always needed: rest, nutrient-dense foods and movement. This is how our bodies are meant to function and thrive.

When you get back to these basics, your body will respond and heal itself. Sometimes that means more energy, weight loss, clear skin, fewer aches, etc— but no matter what it’s going to be feeling better than it does right now.

The Weight Loss Struggle is Real

Now, I know it’s waaaaay the heck easier said than done… and I struggle with this every single day. Yet I’ve had many break throughs over the years as I get older, which is why I’m here to share with you what works best for me in hopes that’ll it help you too.

Embracing simple food habits is where I’ve had the most success with my health. From a morning metabolism tea to a green smoothie— I have set the foundation to have the intention for the day of the body I want to have: strong, healthy & energetic.

What foods boost your metabolism?

Getting a healthy amount of greens, legumes, proteins, vegetables and fruits is essential to supporting the metabolism (1). Slow burning carbohydrates will help you maintain a stable metabolic rate and keep you active and nourished throughout the day. Stick with foods like:

Refined sugars and simple starches do the opposite, spiking insulin production and throwing the whole system out of whack. This can cause the metabolism to slow down and to store sugar as fat rather than burning it as energy. Yet it’s not easy to say no to them, so I prefer the method of adding in more good stuff so it crowds out the bad.

Bottom line: a mostly plant-based whole foods diet is gonna do your metabolism some serious good.

To even get your body excited to head in this direction, you have to create simple habits that’ll get you craving these lighter, cleaner foods. And that’s where my Metabolism Tea comes into play.

What is a metabolism tea?

Activating your metabolism will help you burn more fat and give you more energy throughout the day. This is something we all want and can get! It can start with this tea recipe using plant-based ingredients that are high in nutrients that naturally activate your metabolism.

To train your body to crave the right foods, we have to set the foundation for that every single day. This morning tea uses a splash of apple cider vinegar, fresh lemon juice, cayenne pepper and cinnamon to wake up your metabolic system naturally. We’ve added some raw honey and ginger root to make it taste better and help your digestive system as well.

Our Metabolism Tea uses several pantry staples that we like to keep on hand at all times using Thrive Market.

Which tea is best for weight loss?

When trying to shed a few pounds, I encourage you to drink this Metabolism Tea 1-2 times a day. It has all the fresh, natural ingredients to activate your metabolic system at a SUPER affordable price. I’m all about making a healthy lifestyle affordable.

The best time to have this is upon rising as it will activate your digestive system and help relieve any bloating or digestive concerns. Once the tonic settles in, it’ll get your metabolism burn happening as well.

As the day goes on and you’re feeling hungry in between meals, sip this before you have a snack. Sometimes huger is actually your body telling you it’s thirsty (the wires do often get crossed in our minds).

What a healthy metabolism really means

 I hope I’ve inspired you to try this simple morning routine to kick start your weight loss journey. Yet what I hope for even more, is that you don’t focus on the numbers on the scale, but more on what being lighter will allow you to do.

‘Set goals beyond pants size or pounds— run a 5k, hike a trail, run the Grand Canyon (true story!) kayak with your kids, dancing with your loved ones— allow your weight loss success to just be a launching pad to a more active energized version of you.
