I know it’s been a really long time and I truly missed you too. I wanted to come back with a big bang with a recipe that you would really love, love, love. Today I’m going to show you how to make my natural belly slimming detox water. This is the water recipe that I use before big shoots, before a big day event or something, and I really want to just slim down. Also, of course, I love drinking flavored water because it tastes much better than regular water. Though I do love regular water. Nothing against regular water, but flavored water with extra vitamins and minerals just tastes so amazing and it’s so good for you. We’re going to need for the natural belly slimming detox water are some mint leaves, an orange, a lemon, and a cucumber, and, of course, water. Let’s go ahead and start out with that lemon. You want to cut it into as thin of a slice as possible. Lemon is obviously a detox water superstar. It has a cleansing effect because of the citrus acid in there and also helps with your digestive system. So funny, I love cutting these things this way because they look like bicycle wheels. They’re just so pretty. Then you want to go onto your orange right here. It just adds so much flavor. I’ve gotten a lot better at my knife cutting skills since the last time you saw me. Look, I even have a skinnier knife. I used to have the big, hulking one that I used for everything. See? It was progress. Oranges are so wonderfully because they’re full of vitamin C, they taste great, and they help strengthen your immune system, meaning it fights off those pests and the fungi to really keep you healthy and strong. All right, then your cucumber. Now the cucumber adds such a great, spa-like taste to the water. In a very weird way I feel like it makes it kind of milky but a good milky. Like the water just has so much more volume and depth. Do you know what I mean? I don’t know if I explained that the best way, but that’s why I love putting cucumber in everything. Now cucumber is a perfect component for your detox water, because not only does it taste great, it also is anti-bloating and has a lot of anti-inflammatory properties that help you get away from water retention. That is what causes the water bloating. Also, be sure to stay away from sodium laden foods the week before, because that’s going to make your body hold onto everything, suck onto everything. Then you’re not going to want to expel, so drink more water to get all of those toxins out. Finally, your mint leaves. We will pick that off right before we put it into our infusion bottle. Now we’re going to fill up our food infuser section with these vegetables and the fruits. Now it’s great to put it in here so that when you’re drinking it doesn’t get stuck in your mouth or the seeds don’t come into your mouth because it’s actually like a filter. Also, try not to keep your vegetables and fruits in here for longer than twenty-four hours, especially the mint. The mint will actually turn brown or black and it just doesn’t taste good anymore. Plus, by the time you’ve refilled it two or three times the vegetables and fruits are done. You want to make sure you have fresh ones so that you get your vitamins and minerals. All right, let’s go ahead and add those mint leaves in. Mint is like the cherry on top for a detox water because it gives it that fresh and zingy taste. I just love it so much in everything, in all my food, actually. It helps soothe your stomach craps if you have any, and it also aids in your digestive system. The mint smell always reminds me of Vietnamese beef noddle soup or Pho, which was one of my most favorite things to eat. Growing up my dad would always make it for me on the weekend. There you go, guys. See? We filled it all the way up and now we just need to put the twisty cap on just like so. Look at that? See those stars in there? It helps filter out all of the gunk that’s not going to get in your mouth. You just want to put some of your water in that bottle. Make sure it is ice cold, or you can refrigerate this. Here we go, all the way to the top. We’re just going to press that right on top. Snug fit right there. Put the cap right on and there you go, guys. That is your detox water for on the go natural belly slimming. It tastes so wonderfully. Now this I would probably put in the fridge for at least an hour or two before I drink it to really make sure the vitamins and minerals infuse into the water, and, plus, then it actually tastes better. If you don’t have time to wait for it, then do it the night before. You can also do like a full pitcher of it and actually put everything inside, but, again, try not to re-use and refill the fruits over two or three times because you won’t get your vitamins or minerals. Also, be sure to replace it every twenty-four hours or else it’s just going to taste nasty. So, guys, I hope you really enjoyed that. That was your natural belly slimming detox.
