Water Detox

Tuesday, June 10, 2014


Ingredients:
water
2 lemons {sliced}
1 cucumber {sliced}
10-12 mint leaves

Summer is here and that means it's time to trade in those sodas and energy drinks for some refreshing good old fashion water{with a twist}! Its the time of year where everyone wants to look and feel their best and this little trick can do wonders. This water helps detox, enrich, AND boosts metabolism {perfect for that belly area}! So what is it in these ingredients that makes this drink awesome you ask? Lemme tell ya....

Cucumbers have around 45 calories with the skin still on, and about 35 without the skin. They have so much awesome stuff in them including:

  • vitamin C {immune system, eye disease, and skin wrinkling}
  • vitamin K {blood clotting and strong bones}
  • vitamin A {vision, immune system, and cell growth}
  • potassium {lower cholesterol and reduces high blood pressure}
  • iron {which mainly includes carrying life-giving oxygen to human blood cells and anemia}
  • calcium {strong bones} 

It is also a diuretic which will keep you from holding on to your unwanted water weight!!!! They have lots of fiber and help flush out toxins which is another way it helps you lose weight!
Who knew cucumbers had so much benefits?

Lemons are natural energizers. They hydrate, detoxify, and oxygenate the body. They balance PH, keep your skin clear,  kick start your digestive system, and help with weight loss.They also contain Calcium, Vitamin C, and potassium.


Mint not only smells good it tastes good and freshens your breath! It will aid in soothing the digestive tract if you are having stomach ache and reduces irritated bowel syndromes. It cleanses the stomach and also clears up skin disorders such as acne. It helps in eliminating toxins from the body and is a cleanser for your blood.



SO, Priss how much of this stuff should I drink...?

Drink anywhere from a half gallon to a gallon a day..I make it the night before so it can sit over night in the fridge and soak up all the vitamins and yummy flavor ♥



Drink up Ladies & Gents

xoxo, priss
