How many of you have the summer bloat from too many beers and burgers?

*raise your hand*   C’mon, don’t be shy. I know I can’t be the only one 😉

Well, it’s a good thing you stopped by today because I have something that is going to help you with that. Best thing is, it’s one of the easiest things to do and you probably already have the ingredients.

We have all heard how cucumber water and lemon water have all these health benefits when you drink them separately. Can you imagine the powerhouse your simple drinking water becomes when you combine the cucumbers and lemons together? Bam! Toxins begone! To add a bit of sour fun, let’s add the limes with all their vitamins and minerals.

I’ve only been to a spa a handful of times and every time we’ve gone to get a fancy massage they always hand us cucumber water afterwards. I guess they’re on to something!

Detox water benefits:


Helps to maintain body fluids including digestion to body temperature.


– Cleanses kidneys, improving skin, and lowering blood pressure.Lemon & Limes: 

-Helps to fight infections, cleanse the kidney, reduces bloating.

Pretty amazing, right?

  7. Looks like a refreshing detox drink. I have read a lot of recipes for infused water, but I was just thinking.. wouldn’t it be better to eating the vegetables as it is instead of soaking it in water?

    1. You could and many people use the leftover fruit and vegetables from their infused water, freeze it, and then use it as filler in their smoothies. So, yes, you could just eat them, but for people who dont like plain water, this is a good way for them to flavor their water and not use those chemical-laden flavor packs.

  8. OMG “Bloated from too many beers and burgers” I nearly spewed water on my monitor just now!

I’ve actually been surprisingly alcohol light this summer, but a good detox is helpful year round in my book!

  9. I’m actually planning for next week to be a total detox week! I need to get back on track and stop the overeating craziness that has been my life lately. This would make a great addition to my detox week 🙂

  11. I’m not really a fan of water (I know I know) but I think this could actually drink more of it. I really enjoy cucumber water and I like having lemon in it to add some flavor so both would be really refreshing!
