3 Detox Recipes You Can Make With Hint Water

After long weekends of eating out or vacations where you get thrown off your normal schedule you may feel the need to cleanse your system to get back on track and feeling good. Detoxing benefits the body and mind in a number of ways but this does not mean you need to take it to the extreme of a liquid diet. After of few days of eliminating unhealthy heavy content from your diet you will feel a bit lighter, have a focused and clear mind, and have fewer cravings for your guilty pleasures.

Our bodies are able to detox themselves naturally, but if you’ve been indulging in processed foods and/or an abundance of toxic and synthetic chemicals, it’s still a good idea to take an extra step to get back on track. The true purpose of a detox plan is to give your digestive system a break and let it regenerate, which make the rules pretty simple: eat clean. For a truly effective detox plan, cut out alcohol, caffeine, added sugar, gluten, dairy, soy, corn, and nightshades (white, blue, red, and yellow potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant).

Follow along for three detox recipes that will leave you full, satisfied, and feeling cleansed and rejuvenated.
