lemon detox

I'd like to follow this lemon detox:

http://www.regimesmaigrir.com/regimes/citron-detox.php

I already have the syrop; also need:
"1 demie-pincée de piment de Cayenne (aussi appelé poivre de Cayenne) ou de gingembre (à ajuster selon votre goût)"


In Lausanne/Morges,
where can I find "Priment de Cayenne"?
or "gingembre en poudre"?


Regards,
David

Re: lemon detox

Any coop or migros should have both of those. The ethnic stores will also have them and they'll probably be cheaper.

Re: lemon detox

I think that Migros/Coop have Paprika, which has the main ingredient "Piment_de_Cayenne" (Chili), but it also contains other ingredients.

---
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piment_de_Cayenne
La dénomination piment de Cayenne est ambiguë et peut désigner le fruit.

Le poivre de Cayenne est une épice confectionnée en mélangeant le piment frais broyé avec de la farine et du sel, pour en faire une pâte qui est réduite en poudre après l'avoir fait sécher.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paprika
Paprika is a spice made from air-dried fruits of the chili pepper Capsicum annuum.

---
So, how can I be sure to get the "Piment de Cayenne"?
I did not find this in Coop/Migros.

Re: lemon detox

Unless your body is radioactive, it isn't toxic to start with....

Turkish stores have it under the name Pul Biber.

Re: lemon detox

All Migros spices

Click on the spices you want (poivre de cayenne concassé/moulu and gingembre moulu), in the next windows under "disponibilité" enter your postal code or city name, and it will show you the closest Migros shop which has your spices in stock.

Re: lemon detox

Cayenne Pepper = Piment de Cayenne

Ground Ginger= gingembre en poudre

both of them certainly available in any medium sized Coop or Migros (the tiny shops might not have it in stock) in the spices and herbs section

Re: lemon detox

Wouldn´t it be nicer to put in real ginger? Just cut off some pieces, shred that and mix it in the drink

I think that'd be way stronger than the ground dried version - but who am I to discuss spices, I love fresh garlic and find the dried/ground version to be way too bland.

OP could also buy a fresh cayenne pepper, chop it up and put that in the drink.

"Fresh Detox" - maybe one could call it that


Good luck (and happy detoxing) OP

Not so, it's just a more specific type of chilli pepper, as your own link will show. Much milder than cayenne, sometimes smoked, nice earthy flavour without the heat of chilli . You're perhaps confusing it with chili powder, which usually contains other spices including cumin in a blended mix.

So cayenne or paprika shoukd be fine, although tbh I suspect you'd get exactly the same effect with any chilli mix - we're not exactly talking cutting edge pharmacology here

Ever tried dehydrating garlic yourself? Comes out lovely!

Oh... I didn't realise it was a drink, so I was refraining from comment.

If you're constipated, OP's recipe will help clear the pipes in no time. Just FYI in case folks don't know what's being "cleansed".

Ginger should work well
But boil the slices of ginger in water for 5-10 mins...

I think one should forget my suggestion in an earlier post (adding shredded cayenne pepper) then

Why should OP boil it, if it's going in a drink (liquid, which can be hot or cold) anyway?

Re: lemon detox

good luck with the detox and I hope you feel well!

just a small insight based on experience..I drank lemon water in the mornings when I woke up and after a few weeks my teeth became incredibly sensitive, and my front teeth were changing color a bit...which come to find out, my teeth were sensitive to such regular drinking of the lemon juice. perhaps try drinking your drink with a straw as to not let the lemon juice too much on your teeth. Also flush your mouth with plain water after drinking, this will help too

or perhaps your teeth will be totally unphased by the citron
