Summer is almost over but that doesn’t mean you need to let go of your healthy eating habits. Sure, you’ve been to a couple of BBQs this summer and ate your occasional cheat meal or two. So what better way to end the summer than by detoxing?

Whether trying to stay healthy or lose weight, it’s good to have a habit of detoxing at the end of every season. If you are looking for an easy way to get started on the path toward better health and wellness, here are three delicious green drinks to add to your diet.

Green Tea

Hot or iced, Green tea is a great option to add to your end the summer detox. It is one of the most popular beverages in the world. You can grab it at any local coffee shop or buy it at any local grocery store. Make sure you buy it natural or organic, you want to have the best quality in order for it to make a great impact.

Green Tea has many health benefits, including lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels, boosting metabolism, helping with weight loss, and even purifying the body. It also contains catechins, which are antioxidants that help fight cancer and heart disease. Although your body regularly detoxes on its own, green tea has natural polyphenols, a type of antioxidant that helps your body’s support system to naturally detox.

The best part about this is that green tea is natural and super affordable. You should drink 2–3 cups daily, approximately 240–320 mg of polyphenols. This will allow the body to continue to heal itself and promote health and well-being. Before the summer is over, ditch your super sugary iced coffee for a delicious and super healthy green tea.

Kale Juice

Kale is another natural detoxifier! Kale is a superfood that contains many vitamins and minerals. Kale contains protein vitamins A, C, and K minerals, including potassium, calcium, thiamin, riboflavin, and iron. Kale can also prevent cancer by removing toxins from the body while strengthening your immune system against illness. It also keeps your skin healthy and reduces inflammation in your body by releasing oxygen radicals that cause inflammation.

You may find the rough texture of kale unappealing and cannot stand the taste of it, but another popular alternative is juicing kale. Usually adding something sweet like pineapple and a ½ teaspoon (or less) of ginger does the trick. Juicing kale helps detox the liver, flushes out the intestines, and cleanses the blood.

If you don’t have time to juice, pick up kale juice at your nearest market. Make sure to read the ingredients before you buy. You want to ensure that it’s all organic and has all-natural ingredients.

Cucumber Juice

Cucumber juice has been used as a natural remedy for centuries because it’s so good for you! Cucumbers contain silica, which helps strengthen hair and nails and also:

  • Vitamin C for healthy skin
  • Potassium for healthy blood pressure
  • Vitamin A for eye health
  • Vitamin B6 for energy production
  • Magnesium for healthy bones
  • Zinc for a strong immune system
  • Folic acid

It also has an incredible ability to cleanse and detox your entire body and helps with digestive issues such as heartburn and ulcers. Since cucumbers are alkaline, they keep your body hydrated and refreshed. Adding strawberry chunks will also enhance the taste of the cucumber juice.

Instead of having your average beverage, switch it out for cucumber juice.

Remember that taking small steps is the key to a healthier and happier life. Your body will feel energized and ready for this fall season.
