Yesterday I started a seven day water detox. It’s a really simple recipe and is a fantastic way to flush your liver and kidneys of toxins. It also helps you get rid of extra water weight.
- Pure or Distilled Water
- Organic Lemon Juice
- Organic Cranberry Juice
- Detox Tea (I use Yogi Dandelion Detox)
Mix 7.5 cups of water with 2 Tbsp lemon juice, 1 Tbsp cranberry juice and 1 tea bag. Let sit for about 15 minutes and drink daily. (You need to be sure you’re drinking all 60 oz every day)
That’s it! I usually make mine the night before so it’s nice and cold in the morning when I start drinking. Just make sure you don’t have any long car rides in your near future or you’ll be stopping quite a bit for a restroom! 🙂
Note: A couple people have left comments asking if this is all you eat/drink all day. The answer is NO!! There are no required diet changes for this detox. However, if you have a diet that is high in sugar, carbs, dairy, etc. I recommend eating less of those things and adding more greens and veggies to your daily intake. 🙂
Thanks so those of you who asked! That is a very important point that I completely overlooked!
