Lemon Detox Water

Lemon/Ginger Detox Water
Deb Evans Taylor

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

On the other hand 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 lifestyle. Not a diet - just the word diet turns me off completely. 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, sliced

2 tbsp. honey (local if possible, as it helps with allergies)

2 tsp. sliced ginger

16 oz water

Wash lemon thoroughly. Juice the lemon. Then thinly slice the lemon and set aside. Add the honey and 2 oz hot water to the lemon juice. Hot water is necessary to dissolve the honey. Stir to combine.

Add the sliced lemon, sliced ginger and the other 14 oz of water. Stir.

You may drink it at room temp, but it is absolutely scrumptious chilled.

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

Happy "detoxing"!
