As we near the end of January, I wanted to touch on a topic that is controversial, digestive system detox. There are a lot of varying opinions out there about if, when, and how to cleanse your liver and digestive system. I have never been a fan of long term detoxifications because they are very restrictive and often harmful. Out bodies are built to detoxify themselves regularly.
Instead, I recommend one day of sipping a simple clean juice. Nurse it all day long by just sipping it, do not drink it straight down. Cheers to your health!
- 2 slices of green apple (peal included)
2 oz. Apple Cider Vinegar
8 oz. water
lemon juice (optional
together in glass and sip all day.
Mix above together and sip
Another terrific way to add flavor to your water and give it a nutritional boost is to add the following:
- 1 stick of lemongrass (could substitute 1/2 tsp of lemongrass paste)
1/2 apple with peel sliced
1/2 pear with peel sliced
Add all to a pitcher or large Mason Jar of fresh water. Let steep in refrigerator for 1 hour or longer, pour and enjoy.
