4 Fantastic DETOX Drinks

Hey guys!  As always I hope your week is going well.  In preparation for the holidays, I’ve been searching for some interesting yet effective detox drinks to help me get through all of the turkey, ham and pie that I plan to eat.  I found these 4 recipes that I’m super excited about.  I’ve already tested them and they received the GRIT by Brit stamp of approval.  Remember that detox drinks are good meal replacements and/or supplements to add to your diet every once in a while.  However, long-term elimination of food for intense detox cleanses can be dangerous and actually slow down your metabolism which leads to weight gain.  Be smart and drink up!  Lots of luv, Brit

1. Fat Burning Detox Drink

I love this drink because it has apple cider vinegar in it!  Apple Cider Vinegar is believed by many to be a natural fat burner – my mother and grandmother swear by it.  Growing up, I remember watching them take a straight shot of it every morning.  In case you’ve never had it, it’s disgusting!  I found this recipe on Raining Hot Coupons and I was excited to find that the drink actually tastes good!

4. Diuretic Detox Dandelion Tea

Dandelion detox tea is a diuretic that will eliminate bodily toxins through your liver and kidneys.  Drinking it is natural way to rid your body of excess water and feel lean.  According to classical homeopathic practitioner Sonya McLeod, B.A., D.C.H., dandelions are a great source of vitamin A, potassium, iron and calcium.    Also, some research shows that it’s a natural cancer fighter.  Most importantly Lindsey Lohan and Gwyneth Paltro swear by it (kidding, not kidding).

Top 5 Benefits of Brit’s Delicious Morning Detox Drink

  • Get Lean – The morning detox drink is filling and hydrating.  Drinking it first think in the morning will prevent you from immediately going for an unhealthy breakfast option.  Also, substituting the detox drink for your daily glass of  juice can reduce your calorie intake by 100-150 calories!
  • Glowing Skin – For our skin to look healthy, it’s got to be hydrated.  When our bodies are dehydrated, our eyes look sunk-in and wrinkles and dark under-eye circles are more visible.  Hydrating your body first thing in the morning (before the cup of coffee) is critical for sustaining your glow.
  • No Sniffles – Lemon water provides vitamin C which boosts your immune system.  Also, lemon helps reduce fever because it stimulates sweat.
  • Stay Regular – The detox drink hydrates your digestive system and stimulates bowel movement.  “Lemon helps the bowel to dispose waste, including preventing constipation. The lemon reduces the amount of mucus production in the body, helps dissolve gallstones and acts as a liver cleansing and detoxifying.” Source: Healthy & Natural World
  • Eliminate Toxins – The detox drink benefits your liver by increasing the level detoxifying enzymes and improving your liver function as a result.  Also, as a natural diuretic, the detox drink will stimulate the secretion of bodily waste.

For best results, I recommend starting every day with the detox drink and making it a new healthy habit.  Try it out and let me know what you think.  Lots of luv, Brit
