Need A Quick Tea On-the-Go? I Gotcha Covered.

The Skinny Confidential shares Suja's tea launch.

Let me set the scene: it’s a typical Monday morning & I’m ready to kick my ass into gear. I wake up, shower, oil pull ( sometimes ), have a little espresso shot, drink a green smoothie, return some e-mails…you know, the usual. And before beginning the work day, I’m usually dying for a Starbucks green iced tea. So I’ll go to Starbucks grab an iced green tea, no water, no sweetener, maybe add a splash of passion fruit tea, if I’m feeling crazy.

BUT {!!!} no more Starbucks for me.

Why?

Because Suja just came out with the most amazing selection of tea ( perf for a girl on the go ). Some of their new flavors include: Honeybush Peach, Unsweetened Biodynamic Black, Jasmine Pomegranate, & Chunmee Tropical. & let’s face it: I’m kinda indecisive in general ( GEMINIS!!! ) so when it comes to tea, I never can pick just one. Naturally, having a couple options to stock my fridge with is sort of like, the most amazing thing ever.

As you guys know I’ve been always been a die hard Suja fan. I’m always running around like a psycho doing too many things at once so typically I prefer anything easy/accessible/quick. Don’t get me wrong, I love my juicer more than life itself but throwing a pre-made green juice in my oversized handbag, makes life 10 x easier.

Anyway Suja’s teas are the same concept: they’re quick & perfect for busy people. One less trip to Starbucks, right?!! Plus their non-GMO, organic ingredients are the freshest, purest, & cleanest on the market so I’m not constantly questioning WTF’s in my drink. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

My favorite flava flav is the Biodynamic Black. I’m so obsessed with black tea & this one over ice with a little drop of honey does not disappoint.

Oh, & if you’re looking to de-bloat before your bikini debut ( hello summer! ) then make this lil recipe, & instead of using green tea, use Suja’s black tea. Sooooo good it hurts.

What’s your favorite tea? Spill. x l

Pre-Bikini, Badass, Natural Diuretic Tea

The Skinny Confidential talks diet, fitness, and tea.

Ok so I know I shared my lemon diuretic ( such a dinosaur/throwback post!! ) two & half years ago when TSC launch but today, in true bikini spirit, I’m sharing my favorite recipe for de-bloating tea.

That’s right.

This tea helps combat bloat. Who wouldn’t like that?? Right?!

I like to drink two cups of this an hour or two before bikini time.

So…wait, back up…WTH does diuretic mean?

Whelp, a quick version: diuretics basically get rid of fluid/bloat. BTW: this isn’t some medical, gnarly diuretic, it’s simply a natural tea that will help you feel tight & right.

Lemon is the best natural diuretic on the planet ( I literally would swim in lemon like the grandma from Patch Adams who swam in a pool of noodles…there I’d be…swimming in citrus, just living out my dream ). Green tea & ginger are also effective diuretics & apple cider vinegar is full of benefits. P.S. prone to UTI’s? Drink this tea & thank me later— let’s just say ( for the sake of any man reading this right now ) that it really promotes urine flow. We’ll leave the UTI talk at that ( for now ).

Mmkay.

Ok, so the ingreds:

All you do is make tea like usual, add two tea bags of green tea ( I like this one; it’s clean & organic ), squeeze one lemon, add two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar ( make sure it’s unfiltered & raw ), & slice four thin slices of ginger…and throw it all in your green tea.

Ta-da.

Of course, sense I’m a freaking weirdo about my teeth ( lemon strips the enamel ), I wait for it to cool a bit…&…sip it with a straw. LOL.

This super simple, de-bloating tea is perfect to drink before slipping into your bikini…trust me!! Feel free to make this iced too.

Cheers & happy Fourth of July! x

Guess what I did Sunday?

…?

I mean, I feel like it’s kind of an oxymoron but…I went to the movies…wait for it…& had a kale/carrot/lemon vinegar salad.

I know, right?! So weird.

Apparently the local movie theater has a menu ( NB deal ) that consists of kale salad, arugula salad, a fruit plate, & sushi ( hmmm, ya—sushi…don’t know how I feel about that one ).

Pretty F-ing cool, right?

So now I’m hooked on date nights at the movies— buh-bye GMO, buttery soaked, salt filled popcorn…hello fresh kale salad!

Oh, & BTW, I’m def one of those people that needs to go to the movies with popcorn.

So.

I brought my own. We just bought a popcorn machine ( << totally doing a post on this ). So I bought some seeds, popped my corn, & added a little Himalayan pink sea salt + cinnamon.

Easy, peasy. & so damn yummy.

What’s your favorite movie snack?

Oh, & we saw Bad Grandpa…such a LOL.
