Drink: Peppermint Tea

Courtesy of FeastandFarm.com

Peppermint tea is a popular herbal tea that is naturally calorie- and caffeine-free. Some research has suggested that the oils in peppermint may have a number of other health benefits, such as fresher breath, better digestion, and reduced pain from headaches. Peppermint tea also has antibacterial properties.

Boil 2 cups of water.

Add 15 to 20 fresh mint leaves. I like to rub them a bit in my hands to get the oils flowing first.

Turn off the heat, and steep 10 to 15 minutes or until desired strength is achieved.

Strain leaves (or chew them if you don’t mind the texture and they are small) and serve warm with a drizzle of honey and squeeze of lemon.

(2 tea bags can be used in place of fresh mint).
