MINT To Be! A Lemon, Cucumber, Mint Water Detox!

Mint is refreshing. It is minty. It smells pretty.  But did you know that mint can help settle an upset belly and aide in digestion?

Lemons are great for making lemonade and for adding a citrus note to a beautiful piece of fish or a little squeeze in your cocktail.  Did you know lemons are great for boosting your immune system and even for helping to curb your appetite?

What about cukes? CUKES ARE MAGICAL! There is so much information out there about cucumbers and their health benefits, but here are a few of the reasons I make them a part of my diet! They have anti inflammatory properties and they are great for re hydrating!  That is why you put them over your eyes to reduce puffiness and rehydrate!  Cucumbers also have a very high water and fiber content which is a great addition to any diet and especially to those who are trying to get beach body ready!  That water will help flush the fat and the fiber helps you to feel satisfied! WIN WIN! They also a great source of silica, which is known to help promote joint health. It’s always a good idea to take care of your joints!

And then we have water. Water is one of the most important things we can put in to our bodies.  Water keeps us alive. We have all heard that our bodies are made up of around 70% water. Have you ever thought about what that means and what that translates into for your muscles and organs?  If you have ever forgotten to water a plant, you know what they look like.  Imagine that happening inside your body. Drinking enough water isn’t just the “in thing”, it is necessary for LIFE!!! It is necessary for healthy cell production, healthy muscle tone, detoxifying your body, and for helping you feel your very best! Have you ever noticed that the people who drink a lot of water seem to always be happy? Just an observation I have made in my years as a water drinker. 🙂

 

So what happens when we combine all of these things together and leave over night in the fridge?  Well, I’m glad you asked!  After spending the night getting to know each other, they become a kick ass detoxifying monster that not only tastes AMAZING, but helps to flush your body of daily toxins and help curb your hunger pangs. It will also hydrate you while helping you shed some extra pounds! There really is no reason not to drink this water!

What You Will Need:

12 cups filtered or distilled water

1 medium organic cucumber

2-3 organic lemons

10-12 organic mint leaves

Combine all ingredients and let sit over night and then drink throughout the day.  Do this daily and watch what happens.  It makes you feel amazing!

 

Enjoy this health tonic! Love yourself and do something great for you!

You deserve it!

Ch Ch Ch CHIA Seeds

Have you heard all the talk about Chia seeds?  Do you know what they are?  Did you know that they are more than just the little seeds you plastered on a clay head and placed in your kitchen window?

Chia seeds are interesting to say the least. They can be eaten raw on salads or yogurt.  They can also be mixed with your favorite beverage for a little texture.  They form a slippery coating when soaked in a liquid. Some can deal with that texture, some can’t.  You will never know until you try!  Ever tried Kombucha with the seeds in it?  If so, then you have already had Chia seeds!

Right up there with blueberries and acai berries, Chia seeds are LOADED with antioxidants! They are also loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus and iron! Gimmie gimmie!

Some of the benefits to making these little treats a daily part of your diet are:

Digestion – by helping to regulate bowel function, improve digestion process

Helpful in treating Anemia which is a condition in which the body does not have enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to tissues, causing fatigue and many other health problems.

Wanna fight back? Make an anemia-fighting smoothie with:

2 cups of spinach

1 tablespoon of dandelion root powder

2 beetroots

1 banana

1 tablespoon of chia seeds

1 avocado

Blend all the ingredients thoroughly and drink it 1 or 2 times daily.

 

These little magic seeds also help cleanse the body and increase the red blood cell count. 

 

One of my favorite ways to eat Chia seeds is to make a pudding!  Yep, a non-dairy, vanilla or chocolate, sweetened pudding. This couldn’t be easier and couldn’t be yummier!  Sweets at night are a must have in my house and this fits in perfectly without making me feel guilty for eating it!  You can also make this with milk if you like! You are in charge of your own destiny!

 

CHIA SEED PUDDING

¼ Cup Chia Seeds

½ cup Coconut milk (this will vary depending on how thick you like your Chia seed pudding).

1 tsp. vanilla

1 to 2 tbsp. agave nectar or honey (you decide how sweet you wanna be J)

Mix all of the ingredients together and refrigerate overnight!  I had to play with the ratios of this recipe to get what I wanted.  Feel free to add your own twist to make it just right for you!

 

Enjoy!

JUICE RECIPES

A couple juicing recipes for you on this fine Tuesday!  I LOVE juicing, but can sometimes get a little bored with my regulars.  Here are a couple for your juicing enjoyment!  Have fun with this!

 

V-8ish Juice

¼  water

2 Tomatoes

1-2 Cloves of garlic

1 handful of Spinach

2 Carrots

¼ Sweet Onion

2 Celery Stalks

2 tsp. Lemon Juice

1-2 shots of an organic hot sauce (optional)

 

 

Later Heartburn

1 cup Spinach

6 Carrots

 

 

Sweet Green Juice

Mother Nature’s Energy Drink!  Add kale and parsley first.  Then add Romaine, Cuke, Celery and Apple (for sweetening)

2 cups Kale

2 cups Parsley

3 cups Romaine

1 Cucumber

3 Celery stalks

1 Apple

 

 

A quick note about Parsley:

Parsley is LOADED with antioxidants and is a natural diuretic! Parsley aides in kidney function will help rid your kidney of stones, can even help with urinary tract infections, and inflammation in the body! Do you have stiff fingers or joints?  Inflammation too? Try a Parsley Tea for relief from these conditions! Parsley also calms the nerves!  

 

Parsley Tea

Large handful of Parsley to one pint of boiling water

Allow tea to steep in a glass container (I like mason jars) for at least a 1/2 hour and then drink throughout the day!

 

Tropical Fruit Juice

Need a little sunshiny umbrella drink in your life?  Try this for a power punch of beta-carotene which your body will convert to vitamin A.  This means healthy hair, clear eyes, and healthy skin! A spa treatment in a glass!

1 Orange

½ Mango

1 Slice Fresh Pineapple

1 Slice Watermelon

5 Strawberries
