Drink Yourself Skinny

Three words we rarely say:  Too.  Much.  Food.

Thanksgiving is most definitely our favorite food holiday but after a day of indulging and subsequent servings of leftovers… we need a little break!

Even though we both had a glorious long weekend with our families we came back to NYC feeling as stuffed as turkeys!

We figured if we were feeling this way, you probably were too!

So we wanted to share some of the best beverages for getting your belly back on track.  If you ever find your digestion out of whack or need to give your metabolism a kick in a pants, just try one of these drinks.

Depending on your preference we have a cold option and a hot option.  Try them both and let us know what you think!
