Mint Water Detox

How are you doing on this lovely day? For the last two weeks, I have had the pleasure of learning and experimenting with mint leaves. Initially, I bought a mint plant to support my mojito cravings, but it soon became the source of my mint tea. While I have been drinking mint tea for a…

A Celery Detox

Alright folks, I am back on my grind! And when I say grind I mean my pepper grinder. Honestly, is there anything better than the smell of fresh ground pepper? You don’t have to answer me. Hmmm, now that I think about it the smell of garlic and onion frying in butter is pretty amazing…

Sumac Tea Detox

Sumac is easily becoming one of my favorite spices to use. It has a very rich aroma and it just tastes so gosh darn delicious. I love the fact that it tastes like lemonade and can be sweeten with honey. Sumac has its roots in Asia, Northern Africa, and The Middle East. You actually may…

Jeera Tea Alternative Detox

It’s the beginning of a new week, so that means a new detox. You may have never heard of Jeera Tea, but I bet you have at least heard of cumin. They are the same, just called different names. Cumin is akin to a superfood. There has been a lot of studies in the previous…

Post Game Detox

It’s Super Bowl Sunday in the good old US. Now if you are asking me whether I watch it… No. I am not a real fan of American football, but I do know the rules and have family members that watch it religiously. I prefer my footballers like Neymar who gets hit by ghosts on…
