Brew Anti-Oxidants While You
Fit in a Year - Week
heard by now that we need to add anti-oxidants to our
diets. Especially since we've all been exercising
and moving more!
Here's a very easy, very summery way to do this.
Brew ice tea.
Wait--I know--you haven't time. But what if I told you
it's possible to do this without boiling the water, waiting for
it to cool, and then diluting it with ice?
Try this: before you go to bed tonight, take a glass
pitcher, fill it with about 1 1/2 - 2 quarts of filtered, room
temperature water. Add about 2 tablespoons of loose tea
or a few tea bags which add up to approximately 2
tablespoons. Stir. Put it into the
refrigerator. Go to bed.
In the morning, remove the pitcher, strain, and enjoy!
I'm really lazy, so I only strain it into the glass as I use
it, rather than strain the entire pitcher every morning.
So far, no harm done.
This works with virtually any tea or infusion. This week,
I've made jasmine, green, ceylon, mint, and a ceylon/mint
blend. The tea is smooth and refreshing, very different
from the hot brewed flavor.
Try it! And let me know how you like
