Admit it, most of us girls are figure and body-conscious. We do not want the body we spent countless hours in the gym be ruined by an unhealthy diet. However, there are instances where we can’t help but indulge ourselves with sweets and our favorite party drinks - those are our weaknesses. We are also very emotional, some of us may resort to eating when we are stressed out, heartbroken, or even when we are just bored. No shame. We’re humans after all and it’s pretty much a natural response.
Here is a detox drink that will help expedite the flushing out of toxins and unneeded fats in our body, I call it: The Pink Panther. I name it The Pink Panther after the world’s finest diamond ring and because it looks fancy in pink. Just like diamonds, this luscious bright pink drink is every girl’s best friend for it helps flush out toxins and fat deposits, keeps our body energized and hydrated, and gives our skin a vibrant glow.
Here is the recipe for this heavenly refreshing drink: The Pink Panther
- 1 ruby red grapefruit, peeled
- 4 large watermelon slices
- 2 inch piece turmeric root
- 3 red radishes
The Preparation is simple. Just push all the ingredients into the juicer. Mix. Pour the mixture into a fine mesh strainer. Chill and then serve.
Watermelon juice is extremely hydrating, and is a wonderful natural tonic for gastrointestinal issues, skin problems, pulmonary disorders, gout, arthritis, headaches, and boosts the immune system. Watermelon juice has citrulline that helps flush toxins and acids out of the body, which is good for blood health as well. It is also naturally rich in lycopene which is good bone and heart health and is linked to prevent various type of cancer.
Grapefruit contains calcium, iron, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, and a good source of vitamin C, as well as Vitamin A and some B complex vitamins. Many studies suggested that the increased consumption of grapefruit may lessen the risk of diabetes, obesity, heart disease and overall mortality while making the skin look younger and healthier and helping the body lose weight.
Red radishes are a very good source of electrolytes, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber. They are known help regulate the thyroid, and may prevent constipation by stimulating the peristaltic movement of the colon. They also detoxify the liver and help fight inflammation in the gallbladder.
Lastly, Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents, as well as having natural antibiotic, analgesic, and antiseptic properties. Turmeric improves digestion, lowers cholesterol level, purifies blood, prevents gas and bloating, heals stomach ulcers, and helps metabolize fats.
So there, you now have a drink you can add on your list of detox juice drink recipes. This drink will help us keep our body healthy and maintain our figure. We can now freely give in to our cravings, not too much, though. Let’s make mindful eating a habit and take guilty pleasures in moderation.
