Your new favorite fall drink–loaded with healing properties.

BEC TONIC PIC

It’s that time of the year again. The leaves are changing colors, the weather is getting cool, you may have even lit your first fire. So on your next visit to the grocery store pick up these simple ingredients. Among countless other benefits, ginger root is a powerful antioxidant and helps diminish bloating. In a recent 2015 study of 41 participants with type 2 diabetes, 2 grams of ginger powder per day lowered fasting blood sugar by 12%. (check out the study if you are interested) The orange gives a small dose of Vitamin C and it adds the perfect amount of sweetness—for serious Vitamin C boost add 1/2 teaspoon of one of BEC’s fav superfood Camu Camu—and last…… the cinnamon adds insane flavor and has all sorts of healing properties, anti-inflammatory being at the top of my list. For some reason cinnamon helps my clients diminish their sweet cravings. Yes you read that correct. It helps take away sugar cravings. I promise it’s worth a try.

    Thanks for the recipe! Was wondering what healthy tonic I wanted on this dreary chilly day in Portland! Cinnamon 1) is impossible to spell for me without autocorrect 2) Is also awesome at “balancing” blood sugar. It slows helps insulin remain in the blood stream longer to help the cells process glucose in the blood more efficiently. And the sticks are what still contain the oils that are researched for this activity.

    Thank you for letting me geek out over your drink!
