on the floor.
When I was walking over to the microwave it just slipped out of my hand. I don't know what happened but needless to say, I didn't get to eat my pasta.
So I took it as a sign. I was supposed to start my diet today. So instead I had a half of an avocado and a homemade detoxifying tea. It was actually almost as delicious as the pasta. Well, at least that is what I tell myself.
I am including the recipe for the tea here for anyone who would like to try it. I got the recipe from an Ayurvedic cookbook called, Eat-Taste-Heal. I have been making this tea every now and then for the past couple of months and I enjoy it a lot.
Here is what you need.
- 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
- 1tsp Fennel Seeds
- 1/2 tsp Coriander
- 1tsp Fresh Ginger, grated or pressed
- A Squeeze of Lemon (put in while it is steeping)
- Filtered water (makes up to 4 cups)
A Tea Press
A Garlic (Ginger) Press
Or you could use a grater, I think I get more of the juice this way.
You mix all of the ingredients in the Tea Press
And let it sit for 2-5 minutes, with the press half down.
If anyone is interested in being diet/workout buddies, let me know. We can keep each other focused. Also, is anyone planning on giving anything up for lent? I am not particularly religious but I always give something up. This year it may be chocolate... Don't quote me on that. I still have a few minutes to decide.
