Hi friends !!
Happy Ganesh Chaturthi 😀 How was the weekend btw? Mine was great apart from the fact that its raining heavily here. So haven’t been able to go out anywhere. So, getting into today’d post, I shall be telling you guys about detox water which has been a latest diet craze in recent year. There’s no other more important detox rule than this one: hydration! Whether you’re trying to lose a few pounds or you just want to flush the toxins out of your body, hydration is the key to making this successful. But plain water can be quite bland for our taste-buds and many people opt for canned juices or soft-drinks rather than water. So our ultimate key for this can be our own infused detox water. 😀
Detox water or infused water also called as spa -water nowadays is drinking water that has fruits and herbs added to it which give its flavor to the water and also add some minerals and vitamins into it. So, it can be a healthier alternative to having the sweetened drinks which has a lot of calories in it.
This infused water may sound complicated but it is very easy to make it at home. Just add some fruit slices and herbs to the water and store it preferably overnight and consume it throughout the next day. You can add more water to the bottle or jar too later on. But I recommend you to not use the same bottle for more than a day as the fruits may start to rot.
You can choose from a variety of fruit and herb combinations like apple-cinnamon, or lemon-mint-cucumber, or lemon-ginger for weight-loss. Mint infused water can also help in preventing bloating and give a fresh flavor to the water. If the weather is very hot then you can enjoy watermelon-mint water. If you have a sweet-tooth then you can have pineapple-sugarcane infused water. To have a more strong flavored water you can have orange-blueberries or strawberry-cucumber-mint-lime water. Apart from mint, you can also add other herbs like basil, rosemary and lavender if they are available near you.
These detox recipes taste even more refreshing than sodas or sweetened water which has more calories. These keep you hydrated throughout the day and not only do they aid in weight loss but also they give you beautiful skin which can be an added benefit. Also, there is such a diversity that you will never run out of options.
Stay healthy ! 🙂
