For the second day of Detox Diet, I have a refreshing drink to enjoy through the day. My Dietician suggested this Detox Drink when she wrote down my daily diet. Previously she used to suggest Fresh Tomato Juice and later with the concept of Detox Diet catching up, I guess she upgraded her list as well.A simple and easy to make drink with all cut fresh cucumber, alma, ginger, mint leaves. You could add a small lemon wedge as well. The idea was to fill up one-liter water bottle and add all finely chopped cucumber, mint, a tiny ginger piece and amla.
You have to leave it soaking on your table and keep taking a sip through the day. When you start sipping the drink, you are supposed to chew on the cut pieces and eat as well.
The water by the end of the day is steeped with all the flavours and tastes very different. It took me a couple of days to get used to it. However, I did feel very refreshing drinking this water.
I didn’t chop the vegetables for picture sake. However, everything is chopped finely so that you can eat it as such. If you are looking for an healthy option for Detox diet, check out this Breakfast Oatmeal. Since we are on the topic of Indian Diet Recipes, this Cabbage soup and the Sprouts Salad worked out very well.
With all fresh produce, this detox drink is very healthy and suits Indian Diet.
