DETOX H2o

 

 

Today I want to share with you a tummy flattening detox water that a friend of mine gave to me. When I heard the words tummy flattening, I was like, 'HECK YEAH' And to be honest, I'm not one of those true believers of things like this, but I will try anything once! I thought I'd mix it up and drink it for a few days before I shared. I have to say I'm absolutely LOVING IT. This little recipe isn't going anywhere. I can't say my tummy is FLAT, like pre-kids flat, that's never gonna happen. Ha! But I do notice changes in my digestive system (TMI- but as I get older that's not working like it used to) and overall bloat has disappeared and that's exactly what she said it would do. Because, I don't know about you, but plain old water after while gets, well, old and then I find myself not drinking it as much as I should throughout the day. 
 This is got me back in the habit, and I'm loving the changes. 
 

{68 oz for me- so, 1/2 your body weight a day. Do the math}

So when she posted this gem of a recipe the other day I was feeling a little bloat and thought, why not. So I mixed it all up and I just so happened to have an infuser, so no reason not too. The only ingredient I needed was aloe vera juice. You may be thinking where on earth will I find this? I was kinda thinking that too. But ended up finding mine at Trader Joe's in the drink section. I opted for a smaller single serve container, only because you need a teaspoon per serving. Seemed silly to buy the jug size. Although I hear it it's good for ya! 


RECIPE


  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • parsley, handful
  • 1 lemon, halved + squeezed 
  • 1 tbs fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp Aloe Vera juice
  • 6 cups water 

Put all the above in an infusing pitcher, like this one. Allow it to infuse over night and consume the next day.
I often times double the recipe. Plus when you go through the trouble, you might as well double it up.
