Detox water is one of the best ways to keep your weight loss game on track. Now, we all are aware of the fact that drinking lots of water or keeping yourself hydrated enough speeds up the body’s metabolism and thus helps with the weight loss.
Drinking plain water can become boring at times. Sometimes I feel nauseous if I drink too much of water. So why not add some natural ingredients to it to make it interesting and tasty at the same time. Wouldn’t it be better to drink water from a colourful jar or bottle.
We need detox water to flush out the toxins from our body. Adding fruits and veges and herbs to this water just speeds up the process as compared to drinking plain water.
There are certain rules I follow for my detox water recipes.
- Add in cucumbers as much as possible. Cucumbers act as natural diuretics and so prevent water retention when had on a daily basis. They also have rehydrating properties.
- Never forget the citrus component. It has fat burning enzymes and also helps the digestive tract. Plus it adds a nice flavour to the water.
- Herbs are very important as they contain cleansing properties and also act as stress relievers. They contain anti-oxidants which help flush out toxins.
Lemon water– as simple as it sounds, lemon water is one the best detox drinks. Just add a few slices of lemon or lemon wedges to a pitcher, some mint leaves and some cucumber slices. Add lots of ice (this is optional) and fill it with water. Let it sit for atleast 2 to 3 hours. Ta-da…detox water is ready.
Watermelon love– I don’t think there is anyone who doesn’t love watermelons. The red colour, the taste and added advantage of all that water makes it a go to fruit during the summers. So, I thought why to just eat it plain, and why not try a detox drink out of it. And let me tell you it tasted yum. It has become my go to detox water during summers. How to make it? Just add some watermelon pieces, some mint leaves, and a couple lemon slices (you can even add lemon juice instead of the slices). Add some crushed ice and top the jar or bottle with water. Let it sit for 3 to 4 hours and voila! Watermelon love is ready.
Twisty Lemon water– just combine lemon slices, rosemary and ginger in a jar. Top it all with crushed ice and water. And your twisty lemon water is ready to be consumed.
Fruit mix– so as the name suggests its not just one fruit that you will need. For this recipe you will need one pear, one orange and few strawberries, cut them all up into slices/ wedges. Add these to a pitcher alongwith some mint leaves and lemon wedges. Add in ice and water and let it sit for a couple of hours. Your fruit mix is ready to hydrate you through the day.
Berrylicious– you will need around one cup of blueberries, some rosemary and water. That’s all. Add in some crushed ice as well. Enjoy your berrylicious drink in those hot summers.
Detox green tea– yes, that’s right. Green tea can also be used in detox waters. You will need green tea (brew it like you always do or use green tea bags), lemon, honey, strawberries and cucumber. The first step is to brew your green tea as usual and then put it in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to chill. To this add one lemon slice, 1 strawberry cut into pieces, 2 to 3 cucumber slices and a little honey. Stir well and add ice (optional). This can even be a great drink when you have your friends over.
