Hello friends. I hope you’re doing well. These past couple of months have been challenging but at the same time, I have been able to feel God’s love and presence. It’s been such a blessing to have been able to spend time with my family. The only downside to it all, has been the constant baking and cooking that I’ve done for the past few months which has unfortunately resulted in me gaining a few extra unwanted pounds. I’ve been wanting to try a detox and start eating a little bit cleaner.
Something you might not know about me, is that I used to be a certified fitness trainer and took a couple of nutrition courses as well.
It was a long time ago but one of my go to detox drinks after an unhealthy weekend was a ginger and lemon water detox. Either cold or as a nice hot tea.
The ginger lemon water helps to ‘shrink’ your stomach by reducing bloat and therefore helping you not overeat and it also helps you boosts your metabolism and cleanse your digestive system. Another bonus is that it serves as a natural diuretic which helps you get rid of extra water weight.
Lemon itself has many health benefits such as helping you boost your immunity (which we all need at the moment) suppresses your appetite and keeps your metabolism fired up. It also helps with your hair and skin and many other benefits.
Similarly, ginger has many health benefits. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidants. It helps digestion by relieving bloating. It also helps in weight loss as it increases your metabolism and even improves your endurance when exercising. 🙂
So you can imagine what a dynamic duo this combination is.
1 lemon wedge
1 teaspoon of grated ginger
1 cup of hot water
Boil water in kettle.
Grate ginger into a mug. Squeeze lemon wedge into mug and place it into the mug.
Add boiling water to mug and allow lemon and ginger to steep for at least five minutes.
Drain onto clean mug or use a tea infuser to drain.
You can drink each morning as you start your day or prior to a meal to avoid unwanted bloating.
If you wish, you can make a large batch and place in the fridge and drink throughout your day as part of your water intake.
I’ll keep you posted on my progress. Let me know if you’d like for me to post any other nutrition or exercise tips. I’d love to share with you.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.
Sending you so much love,
This sounds like a easy, tasty & beneficial detox drink!! I want to try it but I am wondering how do you recommend using this? Like do you usually just drink this and fast from food for 24 hours; or drink this with healthier whole foods instead of plain water for a certain time period? Thanks for sharing!!

Can you still have coffee with this cleanse? And do you drink it before or after the cleanse?

I’m going to try this…but I would love to hear more tips on health and wealth.
Thank you for sharing this. But I also had a few questions regarding this drink. Is it possible to drink it for those who have stomach problems or only for those who do not have special health problems? What does this drink taste like? I really do not like bitterness and it seems to me that this drink should be bitter due to the addition of fresh ginger. Although I really love pickled ginger. Perhaps it has the same effect or just fresh ginger? I want to taste this drink and see how it affects me.

Hi, Lucy! I tried this detox lemon and ginger water of yours. It’s absolutely refreshing! I find it’s best to take when I’m feeling drained and it pairs well with Delta 8 gummies. On most days I just do water and lemon, but I am finding myself reaching for some ginger more and more.

Hi. It seems to me that the simplicity of creating this drink speaks volumes, and most importantly, it really helps to tone the body and quenches thirst. I would also like to point out that I also added a few drops of Blessed cbd for myself, as I believe this supplement helps me get a very good relaxation effect. If you’re interested, just visit this helpful link.
It’s a bit strange to think of fruit as trendy, but if you’ve noticed the explosion of “bowl foods” in cafes and restaurants, you’ll know exotic fruits like acai berries, dragon fruit, mango, and pomegranate are definitely https://healthnnatural.com/ on trend. Exotic fruits have long been revered as superfoods for their nutritional content and medicinal properties. Research shows that pomegranates, for example, may bolster heart health, and make a good candidate for dietary supplements that could prevent cardiovascular disease
You know, health problems are one of the most important because it helps us live longer. Anyway, sometimes I have anxiety and fatigue, I understand that it needs to be solved. So one day I removed CBD from this resource https://mjcbdd.com/ as it helped me forget about these constant problems. You can also use it for yourself.
Recently I noticed that with every week I sleep less and less. Likewise, I’ve got lots of stress, so recommend me a quality product that can help to have a normal rest please
Can I join you guys? For me, I found a remedy that helped me calm down and stop suffering from stress at work. On this resource https://joyorganics.com/products/cbd-dog-treats that I found CBD, you can choose a special oil for yourself, which will improve the condition of the body. I hope you decide to use all this.
