Self-Care & Detox: Supporting Habits

Self-Care & Detoxing

A couple new drinks I have been enjoying lately, don’t worry,
it doesn’t contain any alcohol! lol! Two weeks sober!!
This first beverage is about staying hydrated, and helping my body
Detox from 15 years (off and on, mostly on) of
alcohol abuse.

I take a gallon jug, fill it halfway with water
add 4 tablespoons of raw apple cider vinegar
and 4 teaspoons of baking soda
add 1/2 cup homemade Elderberry Syrup
and sometimes I add in some Aloe Juice

Cap and shake jug, fill the rest of the way with water.
Shake again, store in the fridge and drink through out
the day.

I love it! Has a slightly bubbly texture, not too sweet,
and I love the mild flavor of the ACV. It feels amazing
to be practicing this level of self-care! I’m so much
happier lately, and feel so much better about myself!

 

This second one is to make my morning coffee, healthier & more soulfully enjoyable. I grew a couple big Stevia plants in my garden last year, and have them dried in our shop. To use my Stevia as a natural sweetener (trying to avoid sugar), I take a 2-qt saucepan and fill 3/4 with water, then I add a big five finger pinch of dried Stevia leaf, and a bouncy ball sized chunk of wildcrafted Reishi Mushroom (sliced) and put it on high heat till it starts to boil. Once the bubbles are rolling, I turn the heat down to a simmer, put a lid on the pot and let it boil down some. Once the liquid is reduced by half, I turn it off and let cool. This makes a strong stevia/reishi tea that I use as my coffee sweetener. YUM!
