Never drink anything while you eat until you read this....

 

Growing up, I would usually drink 2 glasses of water or soda with every large meal.

Then for many years I listened to a lot of the diet dogma that says don’t drink anything with food EVER or else you’ll dilute your stomach acid, your enzymes and your soul itself! But is that true?

What are the most optimal choices for drinking liquids with your solids?

It’s a question that comes up on our path to greater health and our journey to perfect our digestion (and thus improve our immune system, energy levels and utilization of essential nutrients).

I’ve discovered that there is a middle way that works for my body, and according to much science and testimonial, this homemade elixir 4-point formula works for many health-driven people like you too. And it’s the absolutely fun, mood-lifting, digestion-boosting, food-assimilation-enhancing, hydrating, soda-like beverage you may gulp guilt-free with lunch, dinner and snacks.

If you  don’t crave liquid when eating (I usually don’t), you may drink this simple concoction before or after your meal.

If you have sensitive digestion, the following may be crucial to your continued healing. If your digestion is already strong and regular, consider this rocket fuel to go that much farther with your state of health.

Here’s the 4-point formula for a digestion-aiding** elixir imbibed with a meal.

Try to have at least 2 out of 4 of these qualities when creating your elixir (the absolute best ever recipe version of this follows.)

1. Contains some acidity: Not acid-forming, but simply acidic (a.k.a. slightly sour). May contain lemon/lime juice, vitamin C rich berries, natural carbonation which is gently acidic, or lactic acid (in fermented beverages). This makes your drink agreeable to your stomach environment.

2. Contains some unrefined sea salt: Sodium chloride (salt) goes great with hydrochloric acid (stomach acid). Many cases of low stomach acid are related to a salt deficiency or an imbalance of electrolytes which may be corrected with more slightly salty pure water in elixir form.

Never drink anything while you eat until you read this....

3. Contains digestion and assimilation boosting herbs or spices. From ginger to goji berry, there are substances that taste amazing and stimulate healthy digestion and nutrient absorption in your GI tract.

4. Low to no sugar or is fermented. A sugary or fruit drink will tend to create a bad fermentation bloating bomb. Best to consume stevia-sweetened elixirs or probiotic-rich fermented drinks (water kefirs, kombucha, etc. in which the sugar has been converted by the beneficial bacteria into lactic acid and nutrients).

Tonic ‘Roy Rogers’ Cocktail

When I was a kid I would always order a ‘Shirley Temple’ (lemon-lime soda or ginger ale mixed with grenadine syrup) or a ‘Roy Rogers’ (cola mixed with grenadine) when dining out with my folks. I survived the sugar load! However, in appreciation for non-alcoholic cocktail nostalgia, I present to you the most bliss-inducing, digestion and nutrient assimilation enhancing beverage – perfect for you, family, friends, and kids 8 to 108+!

 

Blend on medium for 20 seconds in a blender:

5 cups spring water

1 tablespoon Longevity Power Goji Joy (goji synergizes the efficacy of food and herbs and enhances their assimilation in the digestive system)

1 tablespoon Longevity Power He Shou Wu Extract (mood-elevating, richly mineralizing, extremely high antioxidant cola-like flavor) or LEVITY (bliss-inducing butterscotch flavor)

Juice of 1 organic lime

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/8 teaspoon KAL Stevia Extract powder, or more to taste

OPTIONALS:

Likey the alcohol? Give this drink a few squirts of your favorite tonic herb tincture. 😉

Desire probiotics and fizz? Replace half the spring water with fresh coconut water kefir

For more digestion boosting: 1/4 teaspoon freshly micro-planed organic finer

 

Pour into glasses with a few ice cubes. Serve with a glass or plastic-free straw. Love your food. Love your drink. Love yourself. Happy belly! Cheers!

It’s that time of year when spicy holiday tea can become a daily savored health strategy!

The classic mulling spices that induce nostalgia for holidays past are: cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, and citrus zest. These herbs are very similar to a chai spice blend which tends to also have cardamon and black pepper. Other mulling spices include star anise and a variety of fruits (apples, raisins) or fruit ferments (cider, wine, etc.)

Robust Autumn Tonic Tea

This recipe is a spicy tea up-leveled with tonics herbs for supreme nutritive abundance so your body can remain warm, glowing, blissful and immunologically-strong throughout the fall and winter.**

 

Bring to a simmer for at least 10 minutes:

 

2 cups spring water or 1 quart spring water for a lighter tea

1 tablespoon cut and sifted organic cinnamon True Ceylon Cinnamon is more tonic than Cassia cinnamon, but if you only have cassia just use it 🙂

1/2 teaspoon organic ginger powder or grated fresh ginger

1/2 teaspoon freshly micro-planed organic citrus zest (orange, lemon, tangerine, etc.)

        or several slices of organic citrus fruit

        or 1 drop organic essential oil of orange

        or 1 teaspoon organic dried orange rind bits

        or 1 teaspoon aged tangerine peel

2-5 organic whole dried cloves, pinched to break apart

2-5 organic dried allspice berries, pinched to break apart

1-3 pinches worth freshly micro-planed organic whole nutmeg

1-2 pinches sea salt

2-4 teaspoons tonic herb extracts, to taste

        Longevity Power Maca Bliss for serious warmth, vigor and creamy-malty taste

        Longevity Power Mushroom Immunity for a coffee-chai-like flavor and robust immune system strength

        Longevity Power Prepared He Shou Wu Extract for bliss, beauty and a nutty- chocolate-like flavor

        Longevity Power Longevity in a Bottle to capture the healing vigor of the forest

        Longevity Power LEVITY to lift above the stress of the mundane and get grounded and for a caramel-butterscotch-like flavor

        Longevity Power Goji Joy for pure happiness and a sweet, rich berry flavor

 

OPTIONAL: stevia extract or wholesome sweetener of choice, to taste

OPTIONAL: add organic apple cider (hard or fresh juice) or  organic wine to make wassail *be cautious when using alcohol (flammable) on a stovetop*

 

Strain through a very fine metal strainer or fine cloth nut milk bag into ceramic mugs. Grin and share!
