3 Detox Water Recipes: Belly Slimming, Anti-Bloating, Craving Control

 

Hey guys!

Guess what!!?? CHEAP CLEAN EATS IS BACKKKKKK!!!!

I missed having you in the kitch, but now we can cook and bake together again :) I wanted to blast off the return of the series by  sharing with you my Natural Belly Slimming Detox Water. I drink this for a week out before a photo shoot or big event to help me flush my body of toxins and to debloat. I drink at least eight 8 oz cups or more depending on my activity level.

Not only does this taste good…it works.

Here’s the recipe for the Natural Belly Slimming Detox Water:

(for one 24 oz serving)

– 3-5 slices of fresh cucumber
– 1/2 small lemon sliced
– 1/4 of orange sliced
– a few fresh mint leaves
– 24 oz of ice cold water

Why does this work?

*Cucumbers prevent water retention and also have many anti-inflammatory properties.

*Lemon provides the cleansing effect of citric acid to help clear out the digestive syste

*Oranges contain flavonoids in the peel and juice that stimulate the immune system and protects against a fungi/pests while helping to reduce cholesterol levels

*Mint helps the body digest more easily and it also soothes any stomach cramps you may have.

Keep in mind that the more you refill your jug, glass or bottle with the same fruits, the more diluted and less nutrient-dense the fruit becomes. So I would recommend that after 2 or 3 refills, dump it and replace with fresh cuts to make sure you get all the vitamins and minerals you need. I also wouldn’t leave the fruits in there for more than 24 hrs before changing it.

Because I am sooooo into detox waters right now, I knew that I had to create a bottle that would help make it easier for you to keep hydrated throughout the day. So that’s how the Detox Water Bottle came to be!

Each bottle comes with a translucent matching lid and an infusion “fruit cage” where your fruits and veggies will stay.  The star shaped filter will help keep the fruit in place and it’ll make it way easier to drink.

There’s 2 more recipes I want to share with you since I’m so obsessed…check it out:

Remember…if your urine looks like lemonade, you are DEHYDRATED. If it looks like lime juice, you’re in the clear and doing well. Drinking more water IN GENERAL is better for you and will help flush the nasties out of your body the more you drink. You’ll also feel lighter and your body will be able to perform at it’s best potential when it’s well-fed and it’s thirst is quenched.

15 Ways to be a Happier Human

be happy

1. Appreciate your life.

Be grateful that you get to live today and that you have the power to create change and affect other people. It is a gift to be alive right now. Make the most of it.

2. Choose friends who make you feel good.

…and take yourself far far away from the people who suck the positivity out of you, who don’t make you smile, and who you dread to see. Surround yourself with inspiring people who motivate you to be a better you every day.

3. Keep learning everyday.

Never think that you’re #1 at something. The moment you do is the moment you stop growing.

4. Compliment others.

To be able to see the beauty in other people, and to let them know means that you are confident with yourself.

5. Always look for the solution, not the problem.

There is always an answer. Seek to be a creative problem solver.

6. Laugh!

Laughing makes you feel better and works the abs at the same time. What could be better!?

7. Take a moment to enjoy life, and stop to see how far you’ve come.

Stop going through the motions and actually stop to realize and ENJOY what you’re doing. Embrace each experience you have because you can’t ever come back to it again.

8. Forgive people and stop holding grudges.

Be able to LET GO. Forgive others so that you can move on. Holding on to the past is like holding onto old stuff that has no value and slows you down. Live for moving forward and being better.

9. Keep your promises.

In fact, under-promise and over-deliver. But never ever ever break a promise. Your word, your trust, is the most valuable form of human currency.

10. Live clean. Live honest.

No lying, faking, and being shady about anything. The truth allows you to live a way less complicated life.

11. Love unconditionally.

Give your whole heart. That is the only true way to love.

12. Invest in the people you love.

Believe in others. It can be the difference between someone chasing their dreams or giving up on everything. You can be the catalyst of making their greatest goals happen.

13. Never give up.

Keep going. You will get there. Love the journey.

14. Exercise.

Working out releases endorphins that chemically make you happy.

15. Believe in yourself.

Always know that you are capable and powerful enough to make anything you want to happen, happen. It’s your life. You control it because yes you CAN turn your dreams into reality.

I thought this may brighten up your day! Do these things ring true for you? And is there anything you would like to add to the list? Let me know in the comments below! Hope you’re having a fantastic week!
