Drink this herbal tonic half an hour before exercising, or have a glass with a light lunch. The green herbs are packed full of nutrients such as beta carotene, chlorophyll, and B vitamins. I find this to be a soothing, almost addictive tonic.


  1. 1Add the lime juice and 3 cups of water to a large pitcher.
  2. 2Place the parsley, peppermint, basil, and mustard seeds in a blender with the remaining 1 cup water. Purée until smooth, for about 1 minute.
  3. 3Strain the puréed mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into the pitcher. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
