This past weekend was one for the books! Not only did we Celebrate Juneteenth , it was also Father`s Day. Traditionally when we celebrate we consume immense proportions of food. The day after we are left feeling bloated and sluggish. Our bodies are begging for a reboot so let the detoxing after party begin!
1 cup strawberries, sliced
1 lime, sliced
¼ medium cucumber, sliced
¼ cup fresh mint leaves
4 cups purified water
Ice cubes to serve
Mix these ingredients inside of a pitcher and place in the refrigerator.
• Strawberries are a great source of polyphenols, helping you burn excess fat
• Lime & cucumber are rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants, helping to fight and flush out free radicals which attack healthy cells
• Mint leaves are a well-known appetite suppressant, helping you judge whether that feeling in your stomach really is a sign of hunger or just dehydration
Drink this detox drink for the next 3 days to cleanse, remove toxins, improve digestion, and improve energy levels. In addition Include 30-45 minutes of exercise 5 days per week to improve your overall health. Remember to be kind to yourself and your body.
