Healthy start to the week

Happy Monday everyone! I wanted to start the week off right doing something I don’t normally do! I love coffee and coke, but they’re obviously terrible for your body! My normal morning routine consists of lots of coffee, but I wanted to switch it up. I decided to go on a little detox adventure this week and see how long I can go without breaking down and chugging a coffee or a coke! (Currently waiting for the caffeine headache to kick in) So I Pinterested some detox water ideas and decided to go with an old favorite! I use to use this recipe in college all of the time whenever I was trying to lose weight before an event or major weekend! 

Not only does this satisfy your tastebuds, but it’s so refreshing during hot summer days! The lemon-mint-cucumber combination cleanses, aids in digestion, and rehydrates. The lemon makes for a powerful detox drink; lemon juice helps to cleanse and alkalize the body. Even though I’m trying to stay away from the sugar, the mint adds a touch of sweetness without the sugar, and it also helps settle your stomach and aids in digestion. The cucumber contains anti-inflammatory properties, and helps with rehydration. Not only are cucumbers delicious, they’re known to contain lariciresinol, pinoresinol, and secoisolariciresinol. These three lignans have a strong history of reduced risk of several cancer types, including breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and uterine cancer! So why not add a few extra cucumbers, am I right?? 😋

I went to Walmart today and grabbed the ingredients for the water, and immediately came home to mix everything together! I let the water sit for 30 minutes, and then poured a glass! So yummy 😋
