Ever catch yourself eating when you know you’re not hungry, just bored? Of course you have. Everyone has. If you haven’t, you probably aren’t human. This sucks because mindless eating tends to be what really packs on the pounds.
Something I’ve found to really help ease the munchies between meals is mint tea.
First of all, it’s tasty. Even if you don’t like the taste of tea normally, you’ll most likely love mint tea. It doesn’t have a strong minty flavor that you would expect and it’s not super floral tasting like most teas.
So here’s the part you really want to hear:
Mint tea has been found to reduce your appetite, aid in weight loss, alleviate digestive concerns and reduce anxiety.
Those are some pretty good reasons to sip on some mint tea in the morning and at night!
I like to make mint tea by just using mint leaves and honey.
Here’s my easy steps to making mint tea:
1. Boil water.
2. While the water boils, put a handful of mint or spearmint leaves into your coffee mug. Drizzle in a teaspoon of honey.
3. When the water is done boiling, pour it into the mug with the mint and honey. Let it sit four minutes before you start drinking it.
Sip up! Happy Tuesday everyone 🙂
