Hot and Spicy Lemon-aid Tonic

January 8, 2017

Wintertime here in Canada gets pretty cold. Although I have to admit, Toronto is in its own weather bubble and always has way different temperatures from cities even just 30 minutes away. The downtown core gets more brown slush than it does snow and warmer temperatures than its surrounding neighborhoods. I don’t complain; I live in the bubble, I love the bubble. Every time I visit my mom who lives in a town 40 minutes from Toronto, I’m always amazed at the amount of snow and chilliness.

This tonic is inspired by those cold, harsh winter mornings or evenings. This drink warms up not only your cold hands, but also the insides of your body. Each ingredient was carefully selected to collectively make this a powerful, medicinal beverage to give a feeling of well-being.

This is my favourite green juice of all time. It’s subtly sweet from the apples, savory from the spinach and parsley, salty from the celery, light and refreshing from the cucumber, and with just a hint of sour from the lemon.

Most importantly this juice is so healthy and alkaline, hence the name alkalizing green juice. This juice can be consumed on an empty stomach; it will give you tonnes of energy, and make you feel full and satisfied.
