Morning Drinks Bollywood actresses swear by wholesome lives
What to drink early in the morning?
- Alia Bhatt, Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez, Sara Ali Khan, Shilpa Shetty
- Anushka Sharma reportedly likes to start her day with alkaline water
- Cucumber and celery juice is a great detox drink and it also keeps fluid levels in check
For a positive and healthy start to the day, the first tip you should resort to instead of your cell phone is a bottle of water. Immediately after waking up, one should make sure to drink a full bottle (at least half a liter) of water and get rid of the body toxins.
This healthy practice may seem small, but it goes a long way towards keeping your fluid balance intact and keeping bowel movements in check throughout the day. Even a glass of water on an empty stomach early in the morning ensures naturally radiant skin and hair. After you’ve established this healthy habit, start practicing something else, which is to have a glass of nutrient-rich drink.
What’s this? How to do it? And what ingredients should you use? To answer all of these questions and more, we turned to Bollywood actresses like Kareena Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. These are divas who always look fresh as a daisy and one of the reasons for this is the drink they start their mornings with.
Celebrity Inspired Healthy Drinks To Try:
Sarah Ali Khan
The Simba actress’ breathtaking weight loss journey is known to everyone. Sara lost the extra pounds by eating healthy. She reportedly starts her morning with turmeric, spinach, and hot water. To do this for yourself, boil spinach leaves in water, add half a tablespoon of turmeric, rinse off after boiling and drink. Turmeric is great for the skin, and spinach is a nutritious green vegetable (also familiar to Popeye).
Shot shot shot shot! Jacqueline starts her day with a dash of wheatgrass, which helps detox and keeps blemishes and acne-free. Wheatgrass is high in vitamins A, C, and E and also helps increase hemoglobin levels. To make this at home, take ¼ cup of grass per serving and liquefy it with water in a blender. Take the juice and use a cotton cloth to pour the water into your shot glass and drink it up.
Alia Bhatt happens to follow the tried and true detox drink – made from lemon juice, a teaspoon of honey and hot water. Add honey to warm water, squeeze a lemon and drink on an empty stomach for best results. In addition to Alia, Heropanti actress Kriti Sanon swears by the same morning drink.
Trust Shilpa Shetty to guide you on the path to a healthy lifestyle and her ways will not disappoint. The actress is committed to healthy and mindful eating and drinking and even runs a YouTube channel for this. Shilpa reportedly loves sipping warm water with three to four drops of noni juice. In case you’re looking for another healthy drink recipe, check out this one:
Unless you sip green tea early in the morning, you will likely be drinking Taapsee over cucumber and celery juice. Are you wondering how to do it? In a juicer add cucumber slices, celery and apple wedges. Pour them out and, after separating the excess pulp, pour the juice into a glass and squeeze out half a lemon. This drink is a great detox.
Anushka Sharma has the most interesting drink of all. The actress drinks alkaline water early in the morning. For the inexperienced, the alkaline water has a higher pH value than normal water. To do this at home, you need to add half a teaspoon of baking soda to regular water and squeeze half a lemon. Just get it right?
Bollywood’s Mastaani start their day with a glass of fresh fruit juice. If you do that for yourself too, you can mash out some oranges and, even better, make a mango juice. With the summer season, the fruit is a perfect choice. Also, remember to start your morning with a water-based drink rather than a milk-based one.
You really thought being fit like celebrities was an easy job? It certainly isn’t and if you are on your way to a healthy body then these drinks are a must have for you. Trust us, your body will thank you!
