Pre-Spring Delicious Drink


lemon 2Water.  I don’t actually care for it.  I don’t like to drink straight water.  But when I returned to my vegetarian lifestyle my body went through a mega detox again.  Instead of my usual standby to help flush out organs of nettle and dandelion tea, I was craving something altogether different.  Quarts of hot water with lemon, lime, and orange slices.  Sometimes chunks of spicy ginger, or sprigs of fresh mint, always honey.  Maybe a pinch of vanilla sea salt.  This little concoction also cleanses the liver, gallbladder, and kidneys and hydrates while being utterly delicious.  A pre-spring feel good drink.  Enjoy!
