You already know that tea has a multitude of benefits for you, so it makes sense that using it outside of a steaming mug could benefit you. Here are a just a few ways you can utilize your tea in your daily life.
- Cooking: Whether you are whipping up a batch of pasta, quinoa, or rice, add green tea bags to the boiling water for a few minutes (be sure to remove them after the proper steeping time). This will release antioxidants into your grains.
- Compost: Instead of just dumping your loose leaf tea into the trash after you brew your cup, add the leaves into your compost pile. They will help everything decompose more quickly. You can also add in tea bags; just make sure the bags themselves will decompose. If they will not, you can cut your bags open to add the leaves.
- Blending: Instead of adding water to your smoothie, add tea to detoxify your body and add nutrients.
You already know that exercise can benefit your body in a number of ways, so it makes sense that getting moving in a way you actually enjoy can yield short- and long-term benefits. To learn more about yoga, Pilates and dance classes in La Habra, California, contact One Body Studios.
