How do you start your day? I’m trying to break my bad habit of starting it with a cup of coffee. Well several cups actually. I love coffee for its delicious smell and the fact it wakes me up. However, I have discovered something quite simple and natural. Hot water and lemon. This simple drink quenches your thirst and has many benefits for your body.
