1) Fat Digesting: Hot mulled maté tea
Maté leaves contain a significant amount of caffeine, which stirs the digestion of fats.
As a postprandial, it is good for the body, and the caffeine swiftly gets rid of fatigue with long-lasting effects. This is a good tea when feeling bloated.
Directions: Steep 1 teabag of maté and 1 teabag of chamomile tea in a pint of boiling water for six minutes. Pour the tea into two cups and add a slice of orange to each. Stir with a cinnamon stick.
2) Fat Burning: Hot mint with lemon
Vitamins found in lemons help transport degraded fatty acids to the place where they are burned.
Directions: Take 1 cup water, 1 teaspoon honey, and the juice from ½ a lemon and place into a small pan and slightly warm. Place 1 sprig of mint and lemon grass into a glass, and pour the hot lemon drink over it.
3) Calorie Liquidator: Elderberry punch
Elderberries contain lots of vitamin C, which can liquidate calories. You can use either elderberry flowers or fruits, though the berries are more effective.
Directions: Bring ½ cup elderberry juice, ½ cup apple juice, two cloves, a small piece of cinnamon, and a little lemon juice to a boil for five minutes in a covered pan. Strain and pour into glasses.
4) Damping the Appetite: Chocolate milk with vanilla
If you have a hankering for something sweet before bedtime, then this milk will help. It reduces the appetite and, at the same time, aids drowsiness.
Directions: Mix 1 cup milk (ideally milk straight from the farm or from a natural foods shop) in a pan with 1 teaspoon of real, high-quality cocoa,
1 teaspoon honey, and a pinch of bourbon vanilla. Keep stirring while bringing to a boil.
