Detox Water with Cucumber, Lemons, & Limes

It’s hard to believe our newest family addition is 3 weeks old.  We have all been adjusting well and I must say he is such a sweet little guy.  One of our concerns as new moms is that the weight needs to come back off.

This has been a concern for me as I walked out of the hospital weighing more than when I went in!  This was a shock to me as this is the first time that has happened.  I know that it’s largely because of all the fluids that I was on due to the emergency c-section but it was still a shock.

Infused waters are one of the easiest ways to make detox water.  This easy recipe tastes great, works wonders to flush your body of toxins and adds several health benefits.

 

I know it sounds counterproductive but the best way to get rid of the fluids and swelling is to drink more water.  This detox water is filled with cucumber, lemons, and limes that not only add a wonderfully pleasing taste but all 3 of these components have great health benefits as well.

Adding several glasses of this yummy detox water to my daily routine helped my feet return to their normal size and keep me hydrated to keep up with the demands of a newborn and his 2 older brothers.

    I actually drink a lot of water (fluids)–a whole lot! This combination sounds like my taste buds would do a happy dance and yes I am going to try it.

      I tend to go in spurts where I drink a ton of water and then days with only 1 cup of coffee in the morning. I’m really trying to be more consistent with getting fluids in.

    I love Cucumber in water as it is a refreshing and great hydrating mix… Perfect for the summer too.

    I love detox and flavoured waters! They help me get my water intake and are more fun then regular water! I like limes, lemons, and strawberries in water!

    When we found out that my mom has formed a gallstone in her gallbladder, we’ve been looking for different detox recipes that would help her. This is something that I would recommend to her as well, thanks!

    I made that same drink this week. I love it! I also love that I can add water a few times to the same lime/lemon/cucumber and still enjoy the yummy flavor! Thanks for sharing at Delicious Dishes recipe party!
