Make your own detox water
Not only does this detox water taste great, have zero calories – it also has huge benefits health-wise. From my experience it improves your mood, suppresses your appetite so you don’t eat junkfood, helps digestion and flushes toxins from your system. This ratio of ingredients seems to be key. We have played with ratios and ended up with some pretty funky tasting water. You can also throw some fresh mint if it’s in season.
