Lemon Mint Cucumber (LMC) DETOX Water

Now that Thanksgiving is over, Christmas will soon be here. This is the prefect opportunity to detox.

It’s good for hydrating and detoxing (or removing impurities from) the body. The lemon, mint, cucumber combination cleanses, aids in digestion and re-hydrates. 

Makes 1 gallon-size pitcher

12 cups of water (3 quarts)
2 to 3 lemons, thinly sliced (you can also substitute limes or mix it up…use a lemon/lime combination–using organic lemons or limes is best)
1 small cucumber or 1/2 of a medium to large cucumber, preferably organic, thinly sliced
10 to 15 mint leaves. preferably organic
Rinse lemons and cucumbers very well before slicing; slice thinly. Add lemons, cucumber, and mint to pitcher. Cover with water and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight (the flavor will be stronger if you refrigerate overnight, but I like the lighter flavor, too). Pour in a large glass over some ice…it’s very refreshing! This water tastes best the day of or day after it's made! Mine is brewing Now!
