Happy Sunday guys! If you follow my blog regularly you know that I love spicy foods and cayenne pepper is one of my favorite ways to spice things up! I sprinkle a little in my soups, foods, smoothies and occasionally simply drink water w/ lemon & cayenne if I'm feeling like I could use a little detoxing action. There are so many benefits to adding this spice to your diet... The obvious here in this smoothie -- boost your metabolism and turn you into a fat burning machine. Especially, when combined with lemon juice. Drink this before a workout and you'll feel an abundance of energy (and sweat) -- you'll be glowing from the inside out! Health benefits are endless...I don't know where to begin! Boost your immune system and help to clear congestion/mucus & a sore throat. Powerful anti-inflammatory to help with aches & pains - even headaches. Works to lower high blood pressure & cholesterol, cancer fighter, increase circulation, helps with digestions and oddly enough, this spicy herb can help soothe an upset stomach. Side Note: Adverse reactions may/may not occur, as this is one powerful herb! Always consult with your Doc when adding something new, especially if you are currently taking any medications.
