Detox Water

Rumor has it, this water will help you maintain a flat belly by flushing out impurities in your system with a natural detox. Caught my attention!

When I think of detox, I think of sitting on the toilet all day. So I have always avoided all the cleansing frenzies out there. I do not think its the case in this recipe. I think this is purely just cleansing in other ways but I guess ill know later.

You see, most of us do not eat healthy. There are so many toxins that are put into our bodies through poor eating choices which compromises our digestive and immune system. With all the toxins in our body, we tend to have a drop in our energy levels, illnesses, and not feeling our best. This water is suppose to make you feel healthy and energized.

The recipe is for a large pitcher but I just made a jar to try it out first. It was delicious and I think I will continue drinking at least a glass a day for a while. I even think it made my breath fresh but that's just my opinion.
I read where you are suppose to drink a gallon a day for 3 days for a true detox cleansing. WOW.

Its filtered water with 3 ingredients and can be adjusted to taste.

Large pitcher of filtered or spring water
1 large Lemon - Lemon helps cleanse and alkalize the body.
1 cucumber- excellent for re hydration and also contains anti-inflammatory properties.
8-10 fresh Mint Leaves- adds a touch of sweetness and helps settle your stomach and aids in digestion.

I am not doctor so you may want to consult a doctor or nutritionist before trying this. If your wondering if this will effect medications, again, see your doctor first. I don't know.

  1. This is so simple! I've been searching for some detox type of stuff for my poor husband. I going to try this and see if it helps him to destress. Found you via Craftinary Linky. Thanks!
    I'd also be super happy if you visited my cleaning blog, Angela Says. Have a fabulous weekend.

  2. Ohh I love this.

    I've been drinking lemon water every morning for the past 2 weeks, as part of my personal 40 day challenge to get healthy. I LOVE it. I crave my morning dose of lemon water :)

    I've also been drinking LOTS and LOTS of green tea, no sugar, nothing, just green tea, and I've never peed so much in my life.

    I would love to add the other 2 ingredients to my water drinking throughout the day, there is nothing but goodness in there.

    Thanks so much for the tip!

    Have a wonderful day, and stop by anytime to say hello if you can.
    P.s. After coming back from an extended blogging break, I've started a 40 day challenge to get HEALTHY by my birthday. If you get a chance to check it out, I could sure use the support!

  3. Hi Lisa,
    I don't think I can drink a gallon a day, but I do drink a similar one every day. I am going to try your recipe for a change I really like the mint and we have mint in our herb garden. Hope you are having a great weekend and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  4. Can you use limes instead of lemon?

    1. I think limes will work. I bet its even better with limes. :)

  5. Do you squeeze out the lemon and cut up the cucumber or do you just put them in there and let them sit overnight?
    Thanks for posting this! I'm very interested in doing some cleansing and even with losing all the baby weight + a little more after my 3 kids in 5 years, my c-section tummy has never recovered. :/

    1. Just cut it all up and let it sit over night. Its full of flavor!!! I drank if for a couple of weeks but didnt stick to it. It sure tasted refeshing and made my skin feel better. Good luck loosing that baby weight!
