how to start your day lemon drink

June 4, 2010

I went to Tofino, B.C. a couple of weeks ago for the IFIP conference. Check out my blog if you want to know what that is, otherwise, let’s carry on. I was on the ferry from Vancouver to Nanaimo and decided to browse through their on-board bookstore which is actually quite good. Instead of buying really interesting books on west coast art etc., I bought The Modern Ayurvedic Cookbook by Amrita Sondhi. Equally interesting but not terribly relevant to my whereabouts.

I’ve been working my way through it and have other recipes to share, but the first one, is the “how to start your day lemon drink.” It’s very simple but surprisingly refreshing and energizing. As Amrita says it’s a “fat-breaking and cleansing lemon tea” that she drinks first thing every morning.

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1 cup boiling water

pinch of cayenne pepper

maple syrup to taste

In a mug, combine all ingredients and stir.
