1. Raspberry Lime Ginger Detox Drink: Sip this drink throughout the day. It’s got just the combination to curb your appetite, calm your insides and allow your tummy to relax and settle so you can lose the puff and the bloat caused by both salt and by stomach havoc that results in intestinal discomfort.

2. Blueberry-Lemon Morning Detox Smoothie: We like to drink this smoothie in the morning especially after we’ve eaten away from home or had several celebrations or evenings out with friends, back-to-back. This smoothie is the perfect way to start the day by flooding the body with nutrients that help to rejuvenate your cells and that help your liver to do its job of detoxifying invaders (chemicals, smog, toxins, alcohol, etc.) that could harm the body. Plus, it takes the edge off hunger so you’ll eat less (your tummy will protrude less when it’s not stuffed), and helps waste and intestinal irritants move more swiftly out of the body to give you a flatter belly.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar Mint “Detox” Drink: Sip on this refreshing number throughout the day to help restore normal fluid balance and flush sodium out of the body along with the bloat that comes with it. It also may help to keep your blood sugar levels stable so you won’t be looking for a quick boost and turn to sugary treats and processed foods that will contribute to belly fat and bloat. Plus, it will fill your stomach and take the edge off hunger while preventing damage in your body by mopping up free radicals and protecting against harm from alcohol and less-than-stellar food indulgences, as well as from stress and pollution. Here’s the recipe.
