Lemon/Ginger Detox Water

Image        Good day! Been a long time since I blogged. My grand daughter was born December 22, 2013 at 4:25 am. She’s healthy and absolutely gorgeous.

Well, thought spring had sprung here in Georgia. But it seems to be coming and going!

But as we have had a few warm spring days, my mind turns to getting more fit for the swimsuit/shorts weather. Besides that, we all need a healthier life style. Not a diet – just the word diet turns me completely off – but a whole new way of eating.

I have heard a lot of people talking about “detox water”. They are looking for good recipes that work. My son, Chef Jody Huckeba, told me about one the other day. I tried it and I’m  hooked! It works great and it has a refreshing taste. Give it a try, you have nothing to lose but all those nasty toxins that plague our bodies everyday…

1 lemon, juiced, thinly sliced

2 tbsp. honey (local if possible, as this helps with allergy problems)

2 tsp. ginger, thinly sliced

16 oz water

Wash lemon thoroughly. Juice the lemon. Then thinly slice it and set aside. Add the honey and 2 oz HOT water to the lemon juice. The hot water is necessary to dissolve the honey. Stir to blend and incorporate the honey. Then add the lemon and ginger slices, along with the other 14 oz water. Stir well.

You may drink it room temp, but it is really good when chilled.

Drink 16 oz a day for three days, skip two days, 16 oz a day for three days, skip two days, and so on and so on. If you alternate like this, you will keep your body toxin free.

Happy “detoxing”!
