Today she will be sharing three amazing recipes :)! Enjoy! 



Cucumber and Lime Detox Water

Slice half a lime and about eight slices of cucumber. Place in a small glass jar or water bottle and refrigerate for an hour or more. This one is my favorite for cooling down after a workout. The cucumbers are a soothing and refreshing taste, help with water retention, and have anti-inflammatory properties. The lime helps with digestion and is great for amping up your immune system.



Grapefruit and Strawberry Detox Water

Slice about one half of a grapefruit and five strawberries, and place in a 32 ounce glass container or bottle. Refrigerate for an hour or more. I like putting this one in a larger container because the grapefruit is larger and gives off a strong, somewhat bitter taste. Could that be called zesty? Not my favorite, but this one is the best for slimming down! Grapefruit is great for your immune system and can help boost your metabolism, which is why so many people call it the "fat-burning" super food. Strawberries contain anthocyanins, which can also prevent fat cells from enlarging and are also a great metabolism booster.


Lemon Orange and Mint Detox Water

Slice half a lemon, a couple slices of orange, and a handful of mint leaves and place in a large glass bottle or jar. Refrigerate for a few hours. This one if hands down my favorite. It is the perfect thing to drink all day long and has a subtle, pleasant taste to it. The lemons are great for cleansing out your digestive system, the orange and peel are a great immune system booster, and mint helps soothe your stomach
