Body Detox Recipes
HOMEMADE GINGER TEA:
1 small cut of ginger root (about the size of your thumb tip)
2 cups fresh water
Boil 2 cups of water and add fresh sliced or coarsely grated ginger. Reduce the heat and let it simmer it for fifteen or twenty minutes. You can strain the ginger pieces, but it is advised that you keep them in and chew them as you drink. The tea is beneficial either warm or cold and you may also add a squeeze of lemon or few spoonful of local honey. Ginger tea is good for circulation, the immune system, regulating blood sugar and dispelling nausea.
Another great body detox recipe is green juice…..
GREEN JUICE (serves 2 to 3-depending on your juicer):
make in juicer or combine ingredients in a blender with 1 cup or more apple juice in place of the apple. The amount of juice will depend on your blender.
1 bunch kale
1 Bunch spinach
1 bunch parsley
1 head romaine lettuce
4 raw carrots
BERRY GREEN SMOOTHIE(2 to 3 servings):
1 recipe green juice
1 cup strawberries
½ cup blueberries
½ cup raspberries
1 ripe avocado
Blend all ingredients in a blender. If you don’t have a juicer, simply combine the ingredients for juicing, above, in the blender. Cut all amounts in half. Use unfiltered apple juice instead of an apple.
When making this body detox tea, too much citrus peel is bad for our bodies….
EASY LEMON MINT OR ORANGE MINT TEA:
the key with this tea is to go easy on the orange or lemon zest.
2 cups fresh water
1 pinch of (¼ tsp) orange or lemon zest
Juice of ½ lemon or orange
¼ cup fresh mint leaves
Boil water and add mint leaves and other ingredients. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. This shouldn’t need any sweetener. The citrus and mint will stimulate your senses and make you feel wide awake. This is a great alternative to coffee.
CAYENNE LEMON TEA:
combine the following ingredients and drink quickly
16oz of fresh, lukewarm (not hot, remember you want to drink quickly) water
1 dash cayenne pepper,
Juice of a whole lemon
This is a major detox tea. Take it in the morning to stimulate your metabolism, wake you up, and encourage elimination. Be prepared, it may produce sweating or other detox symptoms, especially if used two or three times per day.
