Citrus Reboot and Detox Flush

Looking to beat the bloat? If you overindulged and now your tummy is letting you know that you’re paying the price for doing so (i.e. it’s uncomfy, distended or talking out loud–eeks!- we’ve all been there!)), this is the drink for you!

We’ve gotten requests from our clients and from you too, asking for help for these situations where you feel you have to take desperate measures to get results—but don’t worry, you don’t have to! This flush will do just the trick to get you back on the slim track. 🙂  So, if overindulgences are making you crave a “toxin” flush, this is just the restorative drink you’re craving.  While your body does a great job of “detoxing” naturally, on it’s own, certain foods and their powerful nutrients have the ability to assist it, in it’s process.  This refreshing number does just that as it floods the body with anti-inflammatory antioxidants while immediately getting your mind and body back on the healthy track. (See below for two of our recent obsessions that work their magic 😉 ).

Simple and refreshing, yet potent, this elixir will help restore normal fluid balance by flushing out bloating salt, thanks to the water and the citrus fruits’ potassium which work in tandem. (Pssst, if you want more simple recipes to help you flush bloat, try our Sparkling Cucumber Detox and Refresher or our Kale Recharge Smoothie.) And this drink will work its’ magic for only 3 waist-line friendly calories!

We included citrus fruits since they are also packed with vitamin C which helps to boost your immunity and to prevent free radicals from damaging your cells and from causing inflammation.
Meanwhile both ginger and turmeric have powerful anti-inflammatory capabilities (we’re a bit obsessed with both, step into our kitchens—or just check out some of our recipes and you’ll see what we mean! Hello Soy Ginger Salmon and Ginger and Carrot Slimdown Smoothie  :)); they help to restore the body by preventing some of the cell damage that is caused by unhealthy foods (think fried and processed foods) and drinks (cocktails). Plus, ginger helps to calm your stomach by alleviating symptoms of gastrointestinal distress and relieving nausea. It promotes elimination of intestinal gas and acts as an antispasmodic by relaxing and soothing the intestinal tract—of course this all means, less bloat, puffiness and a flatter tummy! Oh yeah! 🙂

You’ll feel at ease knowing that the phytonutrients (thanks ginger, turmeric and citrus fruits) in this drink are hard at work preventing damage and inflammation on the inside. Yes, you can relax your mind, reboot, relax and recharge, knowing you’re doing something good for yourself! You’ll be calmer on the inside to allow for restoration!

Citrus Reboot and Detox Flush
Serves 3

Ingredients:
6 cups cold water
1/2 lemon squeezed, (approximately 1.5 tablespoon lemon juice), other slices for garnish (6 calories)
1 clementine or tangelo, 1/2 squeezed and reserve rest for garnish
1 teaspoon lime juice, reserve other slices for garnish
1 Tbsp ginger root, freshly grated
1/2 tsp turmeric powder

Directions: Fill a large pitcher with water. Add the squeezed citrus fruits into the water. Stir in the ginger and turmeric. Add ice and allow to chill for at least 15 minutes—this will help flavors to migrate into the flush. Make sure you stir the drink before pouring in case some of the powerful ingredients have settled to the bottom. Pour 12 ounces into a glass for one serving. Add each of the citrus fruit slices to the glass to garnish.

 

Suggested drinking ;): Drink this in the morning as an alternative to your morning coffee or tea and drink it throughout the day with meals and at snack time.
