In the heat of summer, it’s not uncommon to crave far less than you do during the cold seasons where comfort food is a focus. Listen to your seasonal cravings!
When your body is begging for hydration, smaller portions, and fresh or even raw foods, it’s likely asking you to give it what it truly wants. Toss those hot dogs and hamburgers, and forget the eat-until-you’re-stuffed meals. Summertime is a great time to allow your body to naturally reset to a lighter way of eating.
This simple summer detox juice is a great way to hydrate and fuel your body without stuffing it full of hearty, filling foods. An awesome post-workout refresher, this “juice” smoothie also makes a great no-booze cocktail for hot summer evenings, and you might find it’s all you need for dinner on some nights.
A chilled glass is packed with vitamins A, B6 and C, lots of lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids. Plus, even though I’m calling it a Detox “Juice” you actually make it in your blender — no juicer needed!
Blend up a whole head of romaine, add some sweet watermelon, a squeeze of fresh lime, and give this juice a try. We love rimming our cups with a little honey and salt for extra flavor. It tastes incredible with the melon!
