Losing weight after baby is something I’ve struggled with both times after my kids were born. Well, to be precise, I think it was after weaning them. When baby is drinking every calorie you consume, the weight loss is not a problem. But once the weaning is done, struggle is huge when baby and other kids take up all your time with the laundry, cooking, and general care. But, remember, better body, better life! See how Fresh Strawberry Leaf Tea can help.
Being overweight is becoming a chronic problem all over the U. S. Fast food is too readily available. And because of life’s conveniences such as the grocery store, and washing machine, people aren’t getting the exercise they used to, when life was harder. Obesity leads to more severe health problems, such as diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers. Let’s skip all that and learn to make strawberry leaf tea.
Fresh Strawberry Leaf Tea
Making this tea is very easy. First, select fresh leaves that are entirely green. Leaves that have brown edges or blemishes, should not be used for tea.
Bring water to a boil, then remove from heat. Let cool for about a minute, because we don’t want cooked strawberry leaves. (That might be a different post!) Place about three leaves in your teacup, and pour the water over them. Let steep for ten minutes. Sweeten as desired.
This tea has a faint fruity taste, and I did find that it needed a little sweetener. Otherwise it is very mild to taste. If you have strawberry plants that are putting out a lot of leaves right now, this is perfect!
My Final Thoughts…
Strawberries have some amazing health benefits. I did not know their leaves aided in weight loss! If store owners knew that, they might charge more for their plants! Shh, don’t tell! Remember, better body, better life!
