Fruit Infused Detox Water

| 01/20/2014 | Reply

You may not think you need detoxification, but I am here to tell you the first few days on a vegan eating plan is no joke. As your kidneys, liver and elimination systems remove toxic chemicals, medications and food additives from your body, you may feel a bit sick. Drinking plenty of water to help flush the waste out of your system as quickly as possible is the key. And a delicious fruit infused water blend will help things along just that much faster.

1 liter water
½ grapefruitfruit infused water
1 tangerine
1 cucumber
4-6 large mint leaves

Preparation:
Slice cucumber into thin circles. Peel tangerine and grapefruit, and separate into slices. Place all ingredients in a large mason jar or pitcher, and cover with water. Leave overnight in the refrigerator. The next morning stir well and drink it throughout the day.

This drink is good for detoxication of the body because:

– Grapefruit is full of vitamin C,burns fat and converts it into energy.
– Tangerine stabilize blood sugar levels and accelerates the consumption of the calories.
– Cucumber creates a feeling of satiety, reduces bloating and purifies the body of toxins.
– Mint is good for speeds up and controls digestion of food and calms the stomach.
