Yes I’m back again with the detox stuff because I know you. When I ask you how’s it going you’re going to say but you never gave me any recipes, how could I do it?
Well, here you go, no more excuses, I’m on to you.
And when I say easy, I mean easy. It’s basically water infused with some fruit and herbs from your kitchen. I’m going to give you the combo’s and you make it happen.
I’m not that big on measurements when it comes to this. It’s a bunch of this and a squeeze of that.
Follow your gut. Get it?
Water + pineapple + turmeric + black pepper
Water + cucumber + watermelon + mint
Water + strawberries + basil
Lemon and Ginger Zinger
Water + cucumber + lemon + ginger + mint
Water + grapefruit + rosemary
Make a large jug of the detox water so you can sip on it all day.
If you crush the fruit before adding it to the water it will give it more flavour.
If you need a little sweetness, pitted dates are your best friend. Add some in for that little sweet note.
Below is a bonus recipe if you are looking for something to aid in weight loss and a flatter belly.
Cranberry delight (helps you lose weight)
This is a Jillian Michaels special
2L of purified water
1 Tbsp 100% cranberry juice (not sweetened, no cranberry cocktail juice)
2 Tbsp squeezed lemon juice
1 organic dandelion root tea bag
Brew the tea bag in 1 cup of hot water and let it cool to room temperature
Fill a large jug with the cooled tea, cranberry juice and lemon juice. Fill the remainder of the jug with water and refrigerate.
Drink the entire jug throughout the day. Do this for a week and you’ll start feeling the results.
Here’s why it’s good for you:
Cranberry is loaded with antioxidants and helps flush out toxins. Lemons support normal digestion and are high in Vitamin C. Dandelion root tea improves digestion, aids in weight loss and eases bloating.
I’m a big fan of herbal teas and detox water. You need to get that water in anyway so why not add some pizzazz to it? It’s simple, easy and most importantly it doesn’t break the bank.
Drop me a line because I like hearing from you and I would love to know if you are going to try it. Also feel free to share with a friend who might need it.
As always I’m here drinking my detox water and wishing you well.
With love and gratitude
