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:

I hope you found these recipes helpful! All the Detox Bottles are available on www.shopblogilates.com!
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.
