I’m meeting my neighbor at the local crossfit gym at 5:30 this morning. It’s our first time working out together, and I’m paranoid I’ll sleep in. So, of course, I don’t. I roll over and look at the clock, 1 am. Again, 2 am. By the time 3 am rolls around my eyes are wide open. Insomnia. Ugh.
If only I had remembered to drink an Ayurvedic hot beverage before I fell asleep last night, I bet I wouldn’t have this problem. Let me share my drink of choice. It’s divine.
First, and most important, in this cast of characters is the MarketSpice Orange-Cinnamon decaf tea and boiling hot water. MarketSpice started as a small tea and spice shop in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market in 1911. If you haven’t visited Pike Place Market, you really, really should. It’s crazy, mad Seattle fun.
Next, I highly recommend almond milk. Doesn’t matter what brand you get, but I like the kind that includes vanilla flavoring. I’m trying to get the unsweetened variety. Sometimes I lose that battle with myself when I’m at the grocery store.
Finally, the most essential ingredient on the face of the planet…honey! A big dollop of it.
And that, my friends, is how you make a hot cup of get-me-some-good-sleep.
Now, if only I had taken my own advice last night. Woe is me.
