And what better way to do so than drinking?! How easy is that? When you eat, you drink; when you snack, you drink; when you're thirsty, you drink!

1. TEAMI DETOX 30 DAYS PACK
Teami is on the top of my list as one of the best detox drinks you should have on hand! Teami is a Florida based company that provides all natural, dairy free, soy free, non-GMO, and vegan-friendly teas! Best part is that it also provides FREE shipping in the US! What?! Score!

I don't know about you, but those all sound good to me!
2. GREENS JUICE
Have you ever tried juicing before? Juicing is a great way to not only get a great dose of veggies, but it's also helping you clean and detox your body! A few key ingredients to add to your juice to help detox and cleanse would be kale, pomegranate, and lemon. Kale and pomegranate are known to help battle any free radicals, provide fiber, protein, and phytochemicals. This is a great way to not only boost your metabolism and keep you healthy, it also helps flush you out!
3. FRUIT with WATER
Wait, what? Yes, you read that right! Water is an important essential to drink every day! You are supposed to drink about 64 oz of water a day! And I know a lot of people who just can't drink water, just because. There needs to be some sort of flavor to it! Lo and behold, adding fresh fruit to your water can help you not only drink the necessary amount of water, but it also helps to keep your body clean and it gets rid of toxins while adding essential vitamins and key nutrients from the fruit! Here are some great recipes: lemon and water (try squeezing fresh lemon into the water to give it a nice citric taste); mint and water (something refreshing and beneficial, mint is great in promoting digestion and soothes the stomach). If you want to be fancy, you can do lemon water with mint! BAM! This offers a lot of vitamin C as well as helps your body release fat cells naturally!
4. HERBS with WATER
Herb-infused water is another great way to detox the body and provide tons of flavor! A few quick starters would be infusing fruit and herbs together! Talk about refreshing and delicious! The benefits of herbs depend on which one you put in your drink! Here are some great herbs to use: basil, rosemary, lavender, mint, sage, and dill. You can mix cucumber, mint, and dill together and not only is it refreshing, but it does wonders to your body-- whether it's detoxing, naturalizing the body of radicals, lowering blood pressure or cholesterol, or just adding vibrant flavors to your drink! Remember, with herbs a little goes a long way, so use it sparingly!
5. APPLE CINNAMON WATER
Not only does this delicious water not have any calories, it's great for slimming down and ridding the body of harmful toxins. It also helps boost your metabolism! And the best part is, it's only three ingredients: water, cinnamon stick, and your favorite apple! You can add as many cinnamon sticks as you like but, of course and as always, use it sparingly and try it before you add some more! For better, more flavorful results, refrigerate this drink overnight!
6. SECRET DETOX DRINK RECIPE
Now, before you go trying to make this, I must warn you! It is an acquired taste! This helps cleanse the body, lose body fat, boost energy, and it naturally detoxes the body! You'll need several key ingredients: apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, and stevia (don't forget the water!). Apple cider vinegar is full of enzymes and good bacteria, it can also help eat up the starches or grains in your diet! Lemon juice helps regulate pH and contains vitamin C. Cinnamon is a great antioxidant and balances blood sugar. Cayenne pepper helps increase metabolism. Stevia is an all natural sweetener. When I first created this drink, I literally prayed. It sounds scary but works wonders!
7. OOLONG TEA
Oolong tea sneaks its way onto my top 7! Yes, I LOVE oolong! Notice how I capitalized 'LOVE'?! Because it's true. The tea itself defies your taste buds, the aroma, everything! Everything about it is just delicious! Oolong is known for its successful aid in weight loss, as well as being a wellness tonic! Recent studies showed that oolong helps improved liver detoxification. Studies also showed that drinking at least 8 cups of tea a day increased GST levels by 80%, and GST is known for playing a crucial role in removing all those nasty toxins out of your liver! PRAISE THE OOLONG TEA GODS!
