Recipe: Slim Down Detox Water

You’ll love this water to help beat the post-holiday bloat and cleanse my body of all of the toxins from holiday overeating. This water is made to do all sorts of good things for your body! Cucumbers are natural diuretics and will help your body release water. Lemons and limes loosen toxins in your digestive tract and will aid in digestion. Grapefruits are high in enzymes that burn fat. If you’re looking to use this as part of a detox to jumpstart your metabolism and cleanse your body, Drink at least a half gallon for 3-5 days! (Also as part of your detox plan, try our Superfoods Detox Soup recipe). Make drinking water fun by adding a bright straw!
