Let’s face it, we might have missed the boat with our kids who now drink juice instead of water or milk. We may have learned too late that 100% juice is really just 100% sugar water where their pancreas’ and livers are concerned. We may even have insisted on this juice as a responsible replacement to soda! It just too depressing now that we are in this deep to even think about the fight that would ensue if we removed these liquid beverages from their day. If this didn’t convince you but you would like to come a long for the ride and reduce the juice anyway, you are totally welcome to play along…even once in a while will make a difference. Try this trick!
Herbal tea comes in all flavors and colors, some even taste like licorice, very berry or orange-y-licious! Brew a huge batch of your choice, adding a couple of Rooibos bags which add vitamin C and other nutrients. Stir a small amount of stevia or honey to sweeten as little as you can get away with and let cool. Pour it into a pitcher and store in the fridge, its the new juice! (reduce the amount of sweetener each time…see if you can get to zero!)
Could it be that the first step in reversing obesity, liver cancer and diabetes is as simple as boiling water? Come on!
