It's the first day of the new year and what better day to torture myself with a healthy detox tea to boost my liver. Yum.
Seriously, this is a great cleanser and the taste could be worse, I suppose:
1 cup hot water
juice of one lemon
pinch of cayenne pepper
1 tsp maple syrup
You can use this as you fast all day, or simply begin your morning with it.
