Lemon and Hot water Blah: Time for a New and Improved Detox “Wake- Up” Al Iksr Drink

IMG_2845So you are trying to lose weight and feel great, you wake up in the morning and make a “special” concoction of hot water with a squeeze of lemon, drinking it down with a boring satisfaction, twisting your face from the sour and bitter flavour and experience, all the while believing this drink is jump starting your inner cleansing system for the day. To an extent it is but my oh my is THAT SUPER BORING!! Sometimes you get even fancy and even add in a little cayenne for a detox boost, and a spicy dance experience. This procedure is as boring and painful as a broken record! It’s time to take our little lemon wake up drink to a whole new world of detoxing, beautifying, and SATISFYING.

Here’s what you do instead;

  • Juice of 1 lemon (or 2 if you fancy!)
  • dash of cayenne
  • dash of raw powdered vanilla
  • 1 packet of Stevia (alternately you can use 1 tsp-tbs raw honey)
  • 1 drop of Orange essential oil (I use Doterra’s Wild Orange oil)
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tbs of Aloe Vera Gel
  • 1 tbs Goji Berries
  • 1 dropper full of Marine Phytoplankton
  • 1/2 tsp Acerola Cherry Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Camu-Camu Berry Powder
Lemon, Stevia, Marine phytoplankton, Orange essential oil, and Goji Berries  - just a few of the super powers accompanying this wild beverage!

Lemon, Stevia, Marine phytoplankton, Orange essential oil, and Goji Berries – just a few of the super powers accompanying this wild beverage!

You see my dear reader – the lemon alone in hot water is fantastic, however it’s so boring and not exploring it’s full detox, beauty enhancing potential! It’s not as effective as it can be – when you add all these incredible ingredients into the mix it becomes MAGIC earning the title of being an Al Iksr.I am a firm believer that when you enjoy something your body can actually utilize the ingredients a lot better. This Al Iksr (a special name I give to delicious medicinal tonic drinks for superheros) is packed FULL of goodies and contains a just the right proportions to make it a full spectrum of health promoting essentials.

We will start with Goji berries – a complete protein, high in a wondrous substance called a polysaccharide, this long chained sugar keeps your blood sugar levels even and prevents you from hitting the 3pm brick wall. This is only a small portion of the superhero abilities Goji berries have – but I will save that for another post. Aloe vera helps rebuild and nurture your digestive system, also containing polysaccharides, and natural sulfur that helps give you a radiant glow. Camu-Camu berry and Acerola cherry are of the best sources in the world for vitamin C  – forget the wimpy orange juice these substances are for super humans! Moving forward, then there is Marine Phytoplankton containing 50 nutrients vital for a healthy body and boosts and sharpens brain function. Cayenne Pepper to add that special detoxing kick in the fat, and a flavour fiesta – raw vanilla, stevia/honey, and orange essential oil, and you’ve got yourself the upgraded version of the boring dull blah blah mainstream trick.
