Detox Tea

I like teas because they are easier to put together than smoothies, plus you don’t need any extra equipment. Tea is warm and yummy especially if you put a lot of honey in it. I was pleasantly surprised with how tasty these detox teas were.

Enjoy these yummy recipes and your detox week.
Notice I’m not giving you any crazy instructions about fasting or only consuming these detoxes. Since we are naturally  riding our body of impurities there is no reason fast or stop eating. I would suggest consuming a clean diet consisting of lots of water, salads, raw fruit, raw veggies, and lean protein. I would stay away from carbs or anything else that makes your body work to digest it. 

Tomorrow is Smoothie Detox Day!
Blessings,
