Carrot/Daikon Drink

This spicy, pungent tea is designed to help dissolve hardened fat deposits that have accumulated in various organs, making for sluggish function and lethargy--and as such, is a great kick-start for weight loss. Working deep in the body to restore balance, this drink works to dissolve the fat, while adding minerals to create strong blood quality. As hardened fat begins to break apart, the weight loss process can begin. For the best results, take this tea every other day for 2 weeks, then stop for 2 weeks, repeating again, if needed. If you have begun losing weight during the first round of this drink, hold off before going again for another two weeks. Let nature--and life changes--do their job.

Makes 1 Serving

Ingredient List: 

½ cup finely grated carrot
½ cup finely grated daikon
1 cup spring or filtered water
splash organic soy sauce
1/3 sheet toasted sushi nori, shredded
1/3 umeboshi plum

Step By Step Instructions: 

Combine grated vegetables with water in sauce pan and bring to a gentle boil, uncovered, over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer 3-4 minutes. Add soy sauce and simmer 2-3 minutes more. Stir in shredded nori and ume plum and simmer 1 minute more. Drink the tea and eat the vegetables, while the tea is quite hot.

COOK’S TIP: For a stronger tea, you may eliminate the nori and ume plum, using only carrot and daikon. It is quite potent this way, so you cannot use this tea for as long a period of time--it’ll make you feel tired...so be careful.
