Drink Mint Tea - Digestive Aid, Stress Reliever & Weight Controller and so Much More

Most tea will fight stress, and mint is no exception. Mint tea is typically used to alleviate digestive trouble. It can calm an upset stomach, relieve nausea and diminish gas. Drinking mint tea will also help remove dangerous bacteria from the digestive system and prevent cold and flu. Along with easing digestive trouble, mint tea provides a number of diverse health benefits. Mint can freshen breath and is useful against colds because of its ability to decongest stuffy sinuses and reduce chest pain. Mint can aid in maintaining a healthy weight, since mint leaves help break down fat cells in the body. Mint is also effective at repelling mosquitoes and treating inflamed insect bites. read more here: http://voices.yahoo.com/health-benefits-mint-tea-6115196.html

Lentil & Kale Soup Recipe


This recipe is a twist to the Lebanese lentil soup recipe that mom always used to make on a cold winter day or during the month of Ramadan.

What I love about this recipe is its rich texture and ingredients that are bound to fill you up and nourish your cells…

Lentil & Kale Soup Recipe

Ingredients:

Clean & chopped Kale leaves
1 cup Lentils (baby brown)
3-4 Garlic Cloves
1 chopped Onion
1 tbsp. Coconut Oil
Juice of 1 Lemon
Pinch of Salt
6 cups Water
1-2 tbsp. Flour

Directions:

1- Clean and chop the Kale leave. Wash the cup of Lentils. Chop the garlic and onion.

2- Saute the onion and garlic in coconut oil (or any other oil of choice). Add the kale and lentils and saute some more.

3- Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of flour and some salt and stir all ingredients together. Flour is used to thicken the soup. You can use any other thickener of choice or just discard altogether.

4- Add 6 cups of water and let them boil. When they start to boil reduce the heat to medium-low and let them simmer for 30 minutes or until the lentils are done.

5- Add the lemon juice and stir.

Enjoy 🙂

Cucumber, pineapple, watermelon, celery, eggplant, cantaloupe, bell peppers, green salad, chicken soup, and a cup of yogurt are great high-water-content foods.
Lettuce, strawberries, apples, and all kinds of vegetable juice recipes are also a great options to hydrating your system.
