Simple Belly Bloat Detox Tea: My Discovery
Inspiration often appears magically, or when you have too much of something or another.
Make no mistake I am not a doctor nor impersonating one, nor am I a nutritionist.
What I am is a mom of three, that suffers from occasionally belly bloating and the need to detox and reset my system so I can maintain a flatter belly.
The challenge for me is keeping my belly feeling comfortable and often even good foods loaded with fiber takes that privilege away!
It’s funny how I craft my recipes, sometimes it is more about stumbling upon items and experimenting than actual knowledge.
How my refreshing belly bloat detox tea came into fruition for me
I’ve been known to sip on lemon-wedge enriched water often, but I watch how much because lemon acidity can be downright awful to tooth enamel.
Other times, I’ve chopped up those gnarly cucumbers with too many seeds that I refuse to eat but will flavor water with just to get rid of them.
To that end, it’s waste not, want not, but I started noticing something interesting with my water concoctions.
Drinking lemon mixed with water was amazing, but adding in chopped-up cucumbers was even better.
Was I on to something or was it just my imagination?
More water intake lessened my want to nibble. Boo-Yah!
Lemon and Water
For years, I watched my mom make my dad pitchers of lemon water while he worked outside doing yard work.
When I was younger, and I would sample his water, I found it far too tart, and wanted to know why there was no sugar in it!
He’d work, sweat, rehydrate with water and not feel bloated because… drumroll please, lemons are a natural diuretic.
The lemon and water detox my mom provided him, helped him not feel bloated but feel better and without sodium or other additives.
As I grew older, I naturally mimicked my mom’s water recipe (even though it never tastes as good, lol).
I read a lot to find out about the lemon, and its effect on teeth and learned that the ice in the water shields and spares your teeth from the acidity of the lemon.
Also, MORE (lemons) is not always better, so I’ll give you the right amount to add in and any ‘extra’ is on you!
What’s in your herb garden: Peppermint or Spearmint?
You’ll be adding mint to this recipe but
The truth about mints is most don’t know the difference between the mints in their garden.
Do you know the difference? If you don’t, it’s really not a big deal!
Whatever ‘mint’ you have in your garden is fine.
If you buy it, grab spearmint.
Did you know mint relaxes the gastrointestinal tract? Do not use it if you have GI issues!
This belly bloat detox tea is a bit minty!
I Use Particular Cucumber Slices
The truth is, I don’t eat cucumbers with big seeds.
I love pickling cucumbers that are small, more tender, and far tastier (IMO).
When you are gifted huge cucumbers from others’ gardens that have those monster seeds in them, make cucumber water.
Personally, I’ve made more gallons of cucumber water than I care to admit, and I sip it all day long.
Alone, cucumber water is refreshing and tasty, really don’t knock it till you try it.
Did you know that cucumbers are veggie-loaded with water?
In addition, they promote ridding water retention, so eat your cucs!
Your cucumber won’t be in that water for more than 4 hours anyway, just enough to infuse it with its great properties!
