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!
