Detox with Water after the Holidays

, / 0

After eating pretty heavy over the holidays, I like to drink water throughout the day – WITH my other meals – to help with detoxifying the body.
I have posted about infused waters before.  They are a great way to pump your body with vitamins and minerals, while also helping with detox.
  • Lemon helps with digestion and boosts your immune system while cleansing and alkalizing the body.
  • Mint helps with upset stomachs, digestion and of course adds a freshness without adding sweetener or sugars.
  • Cucumbers help with rehydration, have anti-inflammatory properties and help rid the body of ammonia, which is a by-product of the proteins our bodies burn for energy.
In a 33 oz bottle, I used…
  • ~ 2/3 cucumber
  • 1 lemon
  • 3 mint sprigs

I will reuse the fruit several times/day and discard after 24 hours.  Let the water sit for about 20 minutes before drinking.
