Waking Up With Water
The other day Amanda was telling me she started drinking a glass of water before reaching for her morning cup of joe. A friend suggested she try it and see if she felt more awake and less inclined to drink two cups of coffee.
I know you don’t want to hear this, but most cleanses encourage you to drink a glass of water in the morning before you get started on the juices/elixers/raw foods. I believe (don’t quote me on thsi) it gives your metabolism a clean start before you consume something your body has to digest. Kind of like how you drink coffee for energy before you have to put yourself to work. From my past cleansing experiences, I can tell you, I do feel better after that glass of water.
Unfortunately water is not what I crave when I get out of bed. I want cold, fresh-squeezed orange juice…or a coffee with soy milk. Anything with flavor please!
But throwing back a pint of water first does seem like a habit that would beneficial as I am becoming a little too dependent on coffee to keep me going.
