Water, an essential nutrient. Do you want to make detox water or fruit water yourself? Here are 10 tips and 10 recipes for deliciously refreshing water for on-the-go, at home, during a barbecue, picnic or kids party!
What is detox water or fruit water? If temperatures rise again in spring or summer, you often want a refreshing drink. "A frieze" like cola, ice tea, you think I'm well known for. But what if you want to lose weight, take your sugar intake or sit in a detox cure? Then detox water or fruit water is a good alternative. This water is enriched with tasteful fruits, vegetables or herbs. The terms detox water and fruit water are often used interchangeably. I recommend making this delicious drink yourself, then you know what's in it! Detox water or fruit water can also be purchased at the supermarket. Be careful, there is a lot of deception in the supermarket, look at Fruit water for example. This "fruit water" has nothing to do with fruit (0.01% orange juice) and is a source of chemical additives. Therefore: make yourself! Well so nice!
Where do you make detox water or fruit water? As a detox coach, I recommend making the water in a glass jar. Plastic can surrender to the water, especially with heat, harmful substances. Even though it may be little, you can better exclude it. If you choose a large amount of water, choose a large 3 liter pot with a tap, see the right side of the picture. This of 16.90 is a great choice! If you want a small amount, a liter or half liter, you can use a carafe. Before going on, I often take the two left ones. All the way left with a straw (400 ml) or the second from the left of Kilner, the latter closes perfectly!
Make sure that the ingredients contain as few pesticides as possible, preferably for organic fruits and vegetables.
Always wash the ingredients, including the biological variants, as these may contain soil and bacteria.
Cut the vegetables and fruits into large pieces, with the skin's peel so that you lose as little vitamins and minerals as possible. Add citrus fruit well, often there is a lot of poison! Drinking lemon water in the morning is good for you.
Tips to make detox water or fruit water. Easy for home, party, barbecue, picnic, children's party. Or for the road in the car. Deliciously refreshing, easy and cheap! Keep your freshly prepared detox water or fruit water in the fridge for a minimum of 3 hours, one night, however, gives you the best results! When your pot is on, fill it with fresh water. You can keep the water for up to 24 hours.
There is no nutritional value on detox water or fruit water, because the fruit does not really eat you. I strongly recommend that. If the pot is empty, eat the fruit well.
Also adding light sparkling water like Pellegrino, gives a delicious refreshing effect!
