Flat Tummy Detox Water

If you’ve been having a little too much fun this summer and are finding yourself bloated and sluggish, you need to show your liver some love! Too many fatty foods, too much alcohol and not enough water can leave the liver feeling overloaded. In addition to taking a break from the indulgence, this detox water is a great way to help de-bloat and flatten out that puffy summer belly. It’s easy to make, tastes good, and is a great way to keep yourself hydrated too.

Recipe:

  • 2 L of Water
  • 1 Orange, sliced
  • 1 Cucumber, sliced
  • 1 Lemon, sliced
  • 10 Fresh Mint Leaves
  • Ice

Mix all ingredients, store in refrigerator and drink as needed. The longer it sits, the more flavor will diffuse into the water, so be sure to let it sit AT MINIMUM one hour before you drink it.

Anti-Inflammatory Iced Cooler

Here’s a great recipe to help you cool down as the weather heats up. It can be served warm or over ice, but when it’s hot out, I prefer it ice cold. Turmeric is a great natural anti-inflammatory and this is absolutely delicious! I found this recipe on thefullhelping.com. I just let it cool and serve over ice during the hot summer months. Enjoy!

Ingredients
    • 2 cups almond milk (rice milk, soy milk, coconut milk, and any other non-dairy milks are a fine substitute)
    • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
    • 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger, or 1 teaspoon ginger powder
    • ½ teaspoon cinnamon powder
    • ¼ teaspoon cardamom powder (optional)
    • 2 pitted medjool dates or 1 tablespoon maple syrup
Instructions
  1. Blend all ingredients together in a blender. Transfer the mixture to a small pot and heat gently, stirring often. Serve warm.
