Detox Water

I know there are a bout 1000 detox water recipes floating around out there. I prefer not to drink Cayenne pepper, or laxatives, so this water is perfect for me.

Ingredients:
1-2 Whole apples, sliced (I use organic Gala, but any fresh crisp apple will do)
2-3 Cinnamon Sticks (can also use cinnamon powder)
1/2 Teaspoon Turmeric (You can use less if the flavor is too strong for you)
Apx: 1 Gal Filtered Water

Directions: Add all ingredients to a pitcher of water. Let sit (as ingredients "steep") in refrigerator for at least 30 min. Drink, and refill (water only) when it runs out. The ingredients should stay fresh for at least a week. Refresh when flavor seems stale or fruit looks "iffy"

I love this because of the anti-inflammatory properties of the cinnamon and turmeric. This is great if you are suffering from an injury, sore, or just plain bloated.
Drink this in place of your normal water, you should be having several liters a day. Enjoy!
