Eating healthy can be a challenge especially if you are a foodie like me. I also love cooking and baking so you can say that food is my life! One of the foods that I can’t say no to is tacos. You have to admit that the ingredients are all “unhealthy” such as greasy beef, cheese, dressing, and tortillas. So, I had to find a healthier alternative and I found this healthy fish tacos recipe from The Spruce Eats!
Healthy Foodie Goals
Hypertension is among the most common medical conditions that are connected to genes, lifestyle, and old age. I do my best to maintain my blood pressure at a minimum and stay away from fatty and salty foods. A friend of mine shared that lemongrass tea with ginger is perfect for maintaining low blood pressure. Just boil about 5 stalks of lemon grass with ginger for 5 minutes and drink it as tea. Other benefits of lemon grass are lowering bad cholesterol, relieving anxiety, and helps relieve pain or inflammation. (Source: “What are the health benefits of lemongrass tea?,” Medical News Today)
With that in mind, it would be best to drink a cup of lemongrass tea if you’ve eaten something fatty or salty to help detox your body. Be careful though because it sometimes make you sleepy as it acts as a relaxant that helps relieve anxiety.
