Mind Body Green - What Holistic Dietitian & Nutritionist Katie Shields Eats In A Day
Shortly after waking, I always drink a big glass of warm water—typically around 20 to 24 ounces. It's important that it's warm or room temperature water because after being in rest mode all night, flooding the digestive system with cold water can be too much of a shock. The body runs so much better when properly hydrated.
I also LOVE kombucha, as I’m all about that good gut probiotic bacteria; sparkling water (it’s what helped me kick my embarrassing Diet Coke addiction eight years ago); and herbal tea. Sometimes I'll have a cup of rooibos or dandelion tea with a few Go Raw date “cookies” (I love that they contain only four ingredients) to curb my hunger while I assemble my breakfast).See Article
