The best detox water recipes to kick-start your day

‘Make sure you drink at least 2 litres of water every day’. How often have we heard this sentence? Is a million times enough? Personally, I find it quite annoying to pay attention to the the amount of water I drink on a daily basis. Probably because I always tend to drink not enough. And of course, water is not really the most exciting beverage on earth. I’d much rather replace water with coffee, apple juice and fruit tea but since I do not intend to die from an excessive amount of caffeine or sugar, I just swallow the pill and try to drink 8 glasses of water everyday. Luckily, I have now also finally come across this awesome trend about infused water. At first, I only saw it on Instagram and thought, okay, it must be one of these crazy fitness trends which come and go but boy, was I wrong!  Thanks to infused water (also known as detox water) I have now far less problems with drinking sufficient water and can finally fight my headache!

So, how is detox water exactly different from normal water? First of all, it tastes so much better and there are no boundaries as to what you mix water with as long as it is healthy! Secondly, it is inexpensive. Instead of spending crazy amounts of money on so-called slimming or weight loss teas, buy some veggies and fruits instead! Thirdly, drinking water is essential for weight loss and detox water helps you to increase your water intake without any problems! Other benefits according to Audrey from loseweightbyeating are that drinking detox water…

boosts your metabolism.

fills you up (so less time to think about fries, chocolate and other bad calories).

improves your mood.

and naturally helps your body release fat cells.

Okay, now that we know all the benefits, we should have a look at some recipes! How about you try the following 10 ones…
