Feeling bloated, tired, and have no energy? It may be time to look at what you’re eating to discover the reason behind the symptoms. We all know that what you eat affects your weight, but the effects can have damaging health impacts as well; meaning eating healthy and clean isn’t just for vanity, it’s for optimal body function. To help kick start a healthy lifestyle, we’ve created a list of the best lemon detox drink recipes to fuel your body with vitamins and minerals.

If you’re looking to start a new health routine, detoxing by eating clean and nutritious foods is a great place to start. What is detox exactly? According to Dictionary.com: detox  (‘di:, toks) 1. treatment designed to rid the body of poisonous substances.

For our purposes, I like to think of detox as eating healthier foods and therefore removing unhealthier options from our bodies. NBC News recently ran an article on the power of detox (although stressing the importance of moderation) noting, “Not only does a healthy detox give your digestive system a break, but by eliminating added sugar, saturated fats, and alcohol, it also rids your diet of things that can exacerbate health issues.”

So, take one for the team (aka your body) and try this awesome detoxifying drink! Mix together all of the ingredients making sure the cinnamon has fully dissolved. Once it has, bottoms up!
