We love a healthy routine. In the words of Aristotle (yeah, we quote Aristotle… nbd), “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” This couldn’t be more true than with a healthy diet.
It’s the everyday routines that matter the most, not the one-offs.
And we think one of the most simple and effective ways to add a healthy boost to your routine is to start it off with a morning elixir. These healthy drinks are great for detoxifying, energizing, kickstarting your metabolism, clearing up your skin…the list goes on. When consumed daily, morning elixirs support organ function and help your body run more efficiently. Here’s a roundup of our favorite healthy drinks (we also love us some good ol’ fashioned lemon water):
Chia Apple Cider Vinegar Tonic: This drink basically does every single thing we could ever want it to. The chia seeds are a great source of energy and also provide healthy fat, fiber and protein to keep you going and keep your digestion on track. The apple cider vinegar and lemons detoxify, support clear skin, help ease digestive problems, and keep your metabolism humming.
Elderberry Tea: Sick of being sick? Add this herbal elixir to your routine. Elderberry helps the body absorb vitamin C and supports a healthy immune system and inflammatory response. This powerful tea is perfect to keep on hand during cold and flu season!
Switchel: Kombucha is the darling of the fermented bevvies world but switchel has been around for a while and it’s time for it to shine! Switchel is made from pre-fermented apple cider vinegar and provides all the digestive and immune supporting benefits of fermented foods.
Fight The Cold Elixir: Our very own recipe! This immune-boosting elixir simmers on our stoves all winter long. It’s our go-to for getting over a cold quickly…but honestly we also just love it for sipping!
