First off, I would like to thank NycFitFoodandFashion for having me be a guest blogger.  I am really excited for the opportunity! …Excited to share with you and learn along side you.

When we spoke I asked if there was any particular topic that should be covered, the answer I was given was thought provoking; “write about something that inspires you.”  Whenever I receive an answer like that, it always makes me take a moment to ponder what really inspires me.  It’s great because questions like that act as a check-in on my everyday life to see if I am trying to live by what inspires or fulfills me. The answer came pretty quickly because it is how I live my life everyday – Fast and Easy ways to be a little healthier.    I like to get the most bang for my buck!

So here are my top 5 tips to be healthier and have the greatest impact while using very little time:

1) Hot Water with Lemon Juice

  • First thing in the morning drink a hot/warm water with lemon before having anything else.  You don’t have to sit and drink it leisurely. In fact, most mornings I drink it as I get myself ready for the day.   Then afterwards I have my breakfast and coffee.
  • Why?

i.     Flushes the body of toxins

ii.     Speeds hydration throughout the day

iii.     Provides a number of benefits to the immune system

iv.     Aids in digestion
