I know I write about tea quite a bit, but I feel like they are a huge help on the Belly Fat Cure. Maybe I should change the name to Me & Tea? It's not so much that I LOVE teas, it is that they are perfect for a low sugar diet... or probably any diet. I started having them when I didn't have any Carb or Sugar servings left in the evening and couldn't have any dark chocolate. So I searched for something that was sweet and free! Celestial Seasonings has some great Holiday Teas I wanted to share with you. They are only out in stores between now and mid-January and my local Safeway had them on sale 2 boxes for $5, but Amazon has a good price too. They are available in most stores that carry Celestial Seasonings tea, but you may not be able to find all the varieties. Stock up now before they are gone for the season!
If they teas don't hit the spot, try adding a little Stevia sweetener or even a little bit of cream. It can make a huge difference and really bring out the flavors.
Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride - I discovered this tea last year and was really sorry I didn't stock up for the whole year. A little bit of sweetness really brings out the cookie flavor. Imagine you are eating raw cookie dough, an awful old habit, and you will get the idea. It does smell better than it tastes, but it is still a nice nightly treat.
Candy Cane Lane - Craving a candy cane or peppermint stick? This tea will really hit the spot! Its a new favorite of mine and gets double points since it is a green tea and decaffeinated. Perfect for an evening warm up. Even though this is a green tea, I don't taste anything that would lead me to think that, so don't let that turn you off.
Gingerbread Spice - This tea smells so wonderful and spicy. Like you have something baking in the kitchen. This tea I like with a little cream. I'd love to find a way to use this tea in my oatmeal or Jay Robb shake. Maybe Christmas morning while the family is having Egg Nog (I do miss Egg Nog) I'll have a Gingerbread Shake. Just use the cooled down tea instead of Unsweetened Almond Milk!
Two other holiday teas to try are Nutcracker Sweet and Sugar Plum Spice. I haven't tired them yet as my tea cabinet is completely full. But they look like great Decaf no sugar options! Let me know if you have tried any of these and what you liked. I had family in town for Thanksgiving and we had these teas everyday!
