The holidays are over, which means the constant and easy access to overindulgent turkey, stuffing and allllll the potatoes has come to an end. With all the food went through your mouth, Thanksgiving can be tough on your body. But don’t worry. You will get your line back.
This doesn’t mean you must turn to a fast diet to restore your balance. Here, I have some detox drinks you won’t mind drinking, as it is extremely delicious and can help you back to track!
Holiday detox water recipe (four servings or two tall glasses)
This drink has just four ingredients, which is easy to make and can help you refresh after heavy holiday meals over Thanksgiving.
4 sprigs of fresh mint
1 cup of pomegranate seeds
1 tablespoon of honey
4 cups of water or coconut water
First, add mint to a pitcher.
Gently muddle the mint with the end of a wooden spoon to release some minty oils.
Then, add pomegranate seeds, honey and water.
Stir to combine.
Add a bit of ice if you want it cold.
