Bloating is something I struggle with around my monthly cycle, especially the days leading up to my period and if I go too heavy on carbs – it’s easy to fall into a vicious cycle of battling food cravings, overeating, feeling stuffy and then reaching for more comfort food. The majority of the time when we get food cravings we’re actually thirsty rather than hungry so staying hydrated with 2-3litres of water per day, switching regular tea’s and coffee’s for vegan friendly alternatives and keeping active all help to beat the bloat and keep you looking and feeling your best!
If we enjoy the food and drink we consume then we’re less likely to pick or snack on junk food between meals so it’s important to experiment with taste, texture and flavours if you’re finding yourself stuck in a rut and your diet slipping. I’m a total fruit-lover and really enjoy vibrant, fresh and uplifting foods which is why I’m really loving the Strawberry & Pineapple Skinny Tea from The Skinny Caffe. Not only does it satisfy my sugar cravings with it’s fruitiness – yes that’s a word now! – but it also warms me up and makes me feel good from the inside out which keeps me motivated to make healthier choices throughout the rest of my day.
Bursting with deliciously natural ingredients including Chinese oolong tea, hibiscus, apple pieces, elderberries, rosehip peel, milk thistle leaves, nettle, red clover, rose petals, pineapple and strawberry pieces with natural flavours this pack comes with 14 tea bags so theres no need to diffuse or strain them yourself like other loose leaf products. It’s recommended you have a cup of fruit tea each morning and simply add boiling water, allowing it to infuse for three minutes before drinking to boost your metabolism, make you feel more energised and motivated. Start by switching your regular hot or bottled drinks for a cup of Skinny Tea or as an accompaniment to your breakfast each day and you’ll soon start noticing the difference that nature makes to your body.
