So, you made it through Halloween – now it may be time for a little candy detox. You gobbled on those sweet treats and they tasted excellent but did not do your body any good.
That’s OK – you can do a quick detox and feel back to a healthy normal. I am not suggesting doing a month of drinking lemon water, maple syrup and cayenne pepper (like Beyonce).
Please don’t do that. You can detox in simple ways that don’t require starvation.
One of my favorite ways to detox – is to just drink a lot of water. Replace all your juices, coffees, sodas, teas…etc for a few days with some detoxifying water.
These sweet little ice cubes are a simple way to add nature’s natural detoxing ingredients to your cup of H20. It will liven you up, cleanse your body and clear your skin.
All you need to do is combine cucumber, ginger and ½ a lemon in the food processor. You will develop a nice little paste. Add water to this mixture and pour into cute, little ice cubes trays. Once frozen, add to a large cup of water – sip and enjoy.
These ingredients are the top foods for detoxing the body:
Cucumber: this had been called one of the “world’s healthiest foods.” It is a natural anti-inflammatory. It flushes toxins from the body and aids in digestion. It refreshes the mouth and is said to heal diseased gums. It lowers uric acid levels in your system – protecting the kidneys. The minerals in cucumber make your hair and nails stronger and shinier.
Ginger: this wonder root fights germs that cause the cold and flu. It combats tummy aches, fights ovarian and colon cancer cells, strengthens immunity and is a natural pain killer.
Lemon: this fruit will combat acne – it is the best citrus fruit for glowing skin. It is said to have a calming effect and will lower anxiety. It helps eliminate fatigue and stimulates brain activity. The pectin power in lemons along with its other metabolism and circulation boosting nutrients can help lower cholesterol.
