Recipe: Slim Down Detox Water


You’ll love this water to help beat the post-holiday bloat and cleanse my body of all of the toxins from holiday overeating. This water is made to do all sorts of good things for your body! Cucumbers are natural diuretics and will help your body release water. Lemons and limes loosen toxins in your digestive tract and will aid in digestion. Grapefruits are high in enzymes that burn fat. If you’re looking to use this as part of a detox to jumpstart your metabolism and cleanse your body, I would try to drink at least a half gallon for 3-5 days! (Also as part of your detox plan, try our recipe for Skinny Detox Soup). For an easy way to make this mix, try one of our favorite water pitchers made by Prodyne. You can add sliced fruit in the side of the pitcher and infuse the fresh fruit into the water. Make drinking water fun by adding a bright straw!
