    Drink Pretty: The Morning Detox Tea


    [​IMG]

    This is the Morning Detox Tea (or tisane, if you’re particular). It’s a bright concoction with decisive notes of spice and heat. There’s ginger for digestion, turmeric to cleanse the liver, cayenne to warm the body and amp up metabolism, and cinnamon to serve as an anti-inflammatory. It’s a nice way to jumpstart your body at the beginning of the day, because a “detox” regimen doesn’t have to cost $400 and deny you of solid food.

    A Salad for Your Skin

    The ultimate beauty food salad would fill you up, make your skin glow, be easy to make, and not cost a fortune, much like the Citrus Roasted Carrot & Avocado Salad pictured above.

    It’s full of the vitamins and healthy fats you need to maintain a clear complexion. Let’s break it down: carrots are high in beta-carotene, an antioxidant that is converted into Vitamin A, which helps repair skin tissue and even works as natural sun protection. (They also contain Vitamin C, which helps the body produce collagen.) Avocados are a great source of antioxidant carotenoids, they improve your skin’s density, thickness, tone, and general appearance; the fruit’s monounsaturated fatty acids help maintain moisture in the epidermal layer of your skin. Don’t be scared of the word fat! Good fats are your friends and an essential part of keeping firm, moisturized and happy skin.

    Here’s how to make this miracle food:
