For the past 3 weeks now, I have discovered how much better hot tea taste without adding any sugar. It all came about after having a bad cold that seemed to tarnish my body. After not having an appetite and just drinking pure tea with sugar, I found out how fat and bloated I was getting. I decided to cut out the glucose and go natural. For two weeks straight I cut out sugar in my tea; a miracle soon followed after.
Realizing how healthy I was getting, I asked myself “what’s the purpose of putting sugar in tea?”. I believe eliminating sugar from your tea is the best possible decision someone will ever make in their life. The taste of tea becomes much more richer and revives your energy you lose when sick. If I feel like I ever need a kick to my tea, I add a little bit of lemon juice which will also help.
If you’re a nut like me then you’ll just think everything w/o sugar is better for you; though you need some type of glucose in your system just not a lot. I’m more aware of how great beverages taste w/o the excess additives (sugar). Not only did it taste better, but I got over my cold in no time.
Would You Agree Tea Tastes So Much Better Without Sugar?
One might think this is dramatic but I would disagree because I’ve never felt closer to death than I did last weekend when I got…(drumroll please) … The flu.
What I thought was just bronchitis was actually the dreaded 3 letter word that now sends a shiver down my spine. I’ve never had the flu before Thursday night…and if I never get it again til the die I die it’ll be too soon.
If you’ve never had the flu before let me explain to you the pain and suffering..although no words on a blog could ever give justice to what I felt.
First the magical journey begins when you’re hit by a 1,000 ton truck. You’re just moseyin’ on by…minding your own business and BAM! Truck. But you aren’t just hit by a truck. That’d be easy. You’re actually hit by a truck and thrown onto a railroad track while the whistle of the train slowly gets closer and closer. You want to get up but everything hurts. Your head is pounding and every muscle aches. Literally even the clothes you are wearing are causing your skin pain and your 103 fever makes the outside world feel like the ice age. You’re freezing…yet sweating at the same time. And then the train steams along and runs you over…and that’s where the real fun begins.
Your lung decides that it wants a change of environment. It doesn’t wanna be imprisoned and trapped inside of your chest anymore…it wants to be free…so you start hacking it up. The cough is intense and hurts so bad there’s
a faint taste of blood with every hack and nothing soothes it or calms it down. Not even 3 bottles of robitussin and 8 pills of NyQuil…
The cough sucks but it’s the little elves that are the real devils. Yes, little elves camp out in the one lung that’s not exiting your throat and they get chilly so what do they decide to do? Build a nice little campfire. But a little fire isn’t enough so they take their matches to the lung and light the bastard up. Now your lung is on fire and burning and the smoke is causing you to cough even more. Only bright side to all the coughing is your abs start to burn like crazy from all the coughing so I’m pretty sure there’s a nice little six pack waiting to reveal itself.
In conclusion I will wake up every day from now on happy to be alive and grateful that it’s another day i don’t have the flu. But if that dreadful day ever comes again..I give all the readers of this permission to find me and shoot me in the face because death would be welcomed rather than going through all that again.
