My Daily Cleanse Water

Daily Cleanse Water Recipe | Henry Happened

Have you ever attempted the ‘master cleanse’? I am definitely not that brave! A cleanse of any kind would probably just make me cranky and crazy and dying for carbs. A few years ago I my pilates teacher, who, of course, was already a string bean, completed the whole thing and it sounded just awful. But she did introduce me to the benefits of water with lemon and cayenne pepper. Now my cleanse water is part of my daily routine!

  • Lemon juice and cayenne pepper are both immune boosters and natural detoxifiers.
  • Lemons aid digestion, help fight hunger cravings, and help stimulate the liver to remove toxins.
  • Cayenne pepper helps the body sweat out toxins while improving blood and lymphatic circulation so your cells get more nutrients.

Cleanse Water with Ginger + Lemon | Henry Happened

Plain water has never been my thing, and this combination makes it much easier to up my intake. Squeeze half of a lemon and add a dash of cayenne pepper to your water and stir. Add a few chopped slices of ginger too for more detox and weight loss benefits (yes, please!). You can add a tablespoon or so of honey for a touch of sweetness. I’ll make a big water bottle of this in the morning and drink throughout the day. It’s perfect for banishing afternoon sugar cravings – definitely my biggest weakness!

What are your tricks for drinking more water? Have you ever tried a cleanse?

    I don’t need to lose weight but I also have trouble drinking plain water. I have also been really aware of my sugar intake (added or processed) after my father was diagnosed with diabetes, and I’ve realized that I have been consuming and drinking WAY more than is “recommended” daily… In fact, most products out there have more than 25g per serving, sometimes double. It’s crazy. I’ve cut back on my sugar intake and now find that most foods and drinks with sugar in them even make me sick now, and things I once consumed a ton of are now just too syrupy or sweet for me.

    But plain water throughout the day has never been my thing, even though I find myself enjoying it more than I used to. I’ve found that Izze and other similar sparkling fruit juice drinks are growing in popularity though, and what’s great is they are natural sugars, not added, because all they contain are pretty much fruit juice and sparkling water. So now I have been getting those and any other similar products at my local market and stocking up at home and at work. I LOVE fruit so the combo of fruit and water has been excellent for me. It’s like having a soft drink without all the added sugar. :D

    What’s also great is that (sorry, TMI incoming), my urine is also clear after drinking sparkling water/fruit juice all day, which wasn’t the case for me when drinking soda and other syrupy type drinks. So I guess that’s how I drink more water without having to drink nothing BUT water.
