Simple AM Detox Drink

You may have heard me say this before…ABC: always be cleansing.

Sometimes we have a day or two of poor eating habits, not enough sleep, or are very much affected by the environment. There are so many reasons we can benefit from detoxing. I like to keep it simple.

Before breakfast, try this. 12oz hot filter water, 1 tbsp lime juice, 2 pinches of cayenne pepper. Add a few lime slices if you like. Lime is acidic, but it is actually alkaline forming in our bodies. Cayenne can soothe a sore throat, calm an upset stomach, and help allergies to name a few!

Glam Water

I don’t know about you, but washing dishes is my least favorite chore! This is a shame because I’m constantly creating a mess in the kitchen as I create dishes for this blog and also my YouTube channel. I was especially tired the other day and decided to make myself a little drink to relax and reward myself before bed. I don’t drink alcohol, but I can still have a nightcap! 😉 The ingredients are simple:

Sparkling mineral water
Pomegranate seeds
The juice of half of a lime
One lime slice

I think the result is absolutely beautiful, especially since most of the pomegranate seeds float and I stay suspended in the water. Also, the drink isn’t sweet so it shouldn’t derail you from any of your health goals by having it any time of day.
