Is there anything worse than waking up the morning after an indulgent meal to find that your skinny jeans feel a little too snug and your face a little too puffy? And with the holidays hastily approaching, there are sure to be a few too many of those mornings than us Skinny Moms want to think about. Thankfully, the infamous Dr. Oz has come to our rescue once again.  His recipe for Tangerine “Weight-Orade” is an infusion of green tea with tangerines and mint that promises to flush out extra water weight and to help burn fat. Tangerines contain a compound called Nobiletin that increases sensitivity insulin, helping to prevent diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. It has also been shown to stimulate the genes involved in burning fat. Combined with antioxidant-packed green tea, this magic elixir is sure to save many a Skinny Mom from the dreaded post-holiday food hangover. Dr. Oz suggests drinking eight cups daily to reap the maximum metabolism-boosting benefits

Here’s what you need:

  • 8 cups of brewed green tea
  • 1 tangerine, sliced
  • A handful of mint leaves

Simply stir all of the ingredients together in a large pitcher, and let the flavors infuse overnight in the fridge. The next morning you’ll have a delicious and hydrating pick-me up that is sure to get you up and moving.
