Drinking a glass of warm lemon water with sea salt first thing in the morning is part of my everyday routine, and should probably be part of yours, too.

Curious how I make my warm lemon water? It’s pretty simple and the most important thing is to make sure you’re using a natural sea salt, not a processed table salt. Natural salts contain trace amounts of vitamins and minerals, while processed salts do not. In order to get all the health benefits make sure you are using sea salt — in fact, it’s a good idea to just toss out your regular table salt and replace it with sea salt if you haven’t already. My current favorite is Maldon Salt, which you can buy at most stores or on Amazon. Here’s how I make my morning lemon water:
10-12 oz warm water (I just use as warm as the tap gets)
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp sea salt
Occasionally I also add a small scoop of chia seeds. They add a bit of fiber and are also a good source of gel water.
