Skinny Tea Lemonade

  March 29, 2014  |    Blog>Recipes
By now you know we are big fans of green tea.  It’s packed with anti-inflammatory nutrients that help to prevent every day stress and toxins from wreaking havoc on your body–goodbye skin-flare ups and internal puffiness caused by damaging foods. 
Plus, green tea contains an amino acid called theanine, which helps to create a state of alert calmness.   Calm = good, you won’t be on edge and overeat.  Plus, this tea is not only low in calories (just 15!) but it also takes the edge off hunger as it’s warm, calming and pacifying.  The lemon, lemon zest and honey complete this Skinny Tea Lemonade. Um, Yum!  We mean, um, hello Skinny Yum! 🙂
