I personally wanted to take some time to detox my body after the holidays and my birthday, so I started to dig around online to see if I can find natural ways to achieve this. I came across a website that gave awesome simple recipes to create detox water using fruit, vegetables, and natural herbs you can find right in your local grocery store. I will be beginning this detox journey today and I do hope you are able to join this journey with me as well.
I plan on going a full 14 days without drinking any juice, sodas, alcohol, etc. Nothing but detox water to drink on throughout the day. Below I have attached a couple of simple recipes and information about the benefits of Infused Water I found on www.losingweightbyeating.com. Feel free to leave comments below on different recipes you have tried and how effective they have been for you. I look forward to hearing from you all!
What Are The Benefits of Infused Water?
Besides tasting great and having zero calories, a water detox has many additional health benefits, including:
Improves your mood.
Flushes toxins from your system.
Fills you up so you don’t eat as much junk.
Naturally helps your body release fat cells for water weight loss.
Keeps food moving through your system.
Keeps your organs healthy while you’re sweating.
Reduces muscle fatigue while working out.
Helps you recuperate faster from a workout.
Keeps you from feeling groggy in the afternoon.
Lemon water detox only has two ingredients, lemon and mint. The sweetness from the mint and the sourness from the lemon create a flavor that is satisfying and refreshing. This recipe provides plenty of Vitamin C which is great for protecting ourselves from immune system deficiencies, cardio vascular disease, cancer, stroke, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling, according to Web MD. If cost is a factor when it comes to changing your eating and drinking habits, you have no excuse with this recipe. Trying out this recipe is a most certainly cost effective compared to the money we spend on drinks that are filled with empty calories.
Day Spa Mango Ginger Water
If you are wanting to boost your metabolism drinking mango and ginger water together is a great way to start! Ginger is known to destroy ovarian cancer cells, and it can also lower levels of colon inflammation and inflammation of the intestines, thereby helping to reduce the risk of colon cancer according to Natural Society.

To peel the ginger use the back of a spoon or a vegetable peeler, just peel the part that you will be using. Using a sharp knife slice ginger into 3-4 coin sized slices. You want them about the size and thickness of the coin.
-Drop into your pitcher and add in the mango.
-Top with 3 cups of ice and then add with water.(the ice is important, it holds down the ginger and mango to help infuse the water)
-Place in your fridge for 1-3 hours before serving.
-When serving add a couple frozen mango chunks in a pretty glass for ice cubes.
This will keep in the fridge for 24 hours.
How did Tiffany like it?
I must admit, I actually did like it and I am about half way through with the container at lunch time. I actually love it. I added apples, cucumbers, and lemon to mine. I pilled my lemon because I was afraid it would have a bitter taste. For the most part, I just taste the lemon. It really is great over ice, and does not taste like regular tap or bottled water. It is easy to get down, and an easier way to detox. The next one I am going to make is going to have limes in it. I can't wait to see how that one taste!
