Green tea is loaded with catechins. What are catechins? They are antioxidants best known for fighting against diseases and preventing cell damage. I don’t think we can get enough catechins into our daily diet. Researchers believe that a cup or two of green tea a day along with a proper diet and active lifestyle will positively affect a healthy life. And no, do not drink the sweetened Lipton green tea in a bottle. I’m talking about a packet of green tea to steep in hot water. I enjoy flavoring my green tea with a little bit of honey and lemon.
Not only does green tea make you healthy on the inside, it keeps you looking young on the outside. It’s anti-aging benefits will keep your skin looking oh-so-beautiful and I know that’s always a plus with me because I am a freak about my retinol and eye cream. If green tea can keep me from spending up to $100 at Sephora on beauty products, I am all in. Although Sephora is one of my favorite stores… Keep in mind that it’s simple swaps like this that can make a huge impact on your health. You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on eating organic or gluten-free – just look for easy ways to incorporate healthy changes. If I can do it, you can do it too!
That’s my preaching for the day! I hope you all have a happy, healthy and blessed Sunday.
