Lemon Mint Cucumber {The Delicious Detox}

Last weekend I ate way too much chocolate for my own good! Did you? .

Ridden with guilt,  I decided to start the lemon mint water ritual again this weekend. I haven’t done it for a few weeks now and the effects are noticeable – sluggish, bloated and my skin’s not as clear among other things. So if you are feeling anything like me, jump right in and start doing the detox, make it a regular thing or as a two-day detox, either way it’s a win win. As someone who doesn’t drink a lot of water (bad , I know) , I have found that I can easily drink 6-8 glasses of this drink which is perfect. Upon a friend’s suggestion , I am throwing in some cucumber too, you can leave it out if you like.

A few of the many known benefits of including lemon mint water in your everyday diet are :

Weight Loss? Don’t mind if I do – Lemons are said to curb hunger pangs thereby reducing trips to the fridge and pantry between meals.

Goodbye Heartburn – Known for their digestive benefits, lemons help flush out toxins and impurities from our system. Say goodbye to constant heartburn and indigestion.

Bloating Begone – Both lemons and cucumbers are diuretic so your body does not retain excessive water making you feel less bloated. Cucumbers are also very high in fibre which again helps the flushing out process as explained in point 2.

Get The Glow -Who doesn’t want flawless skin?  Drink the magic potion, your skin will go all clear, fresh and radiant. I promise.

Got you hooked haven’t I? Alright without further adieu, here is the recipe to the aforementioned magic potion.

    How much do You drink of it per day? I heard it could do more harm than good if You drink to much

  10. mayra

    can you use a lime or does it have to be a lemon

  11. Teri

    I did this recently and found that letting it sit overnight is too long. The lemon turned it bitter. In my opinion 3-6 hours gives it a good flavor without it being bitter. I also muddled my mint to help it infuse better. Test it out and adjust to your liking.
