I don’t know about you but I pigged out on the holiday–lots of macaroni, greens, dressing and chicken. I was in heaven! But, as you know, all good things must come to an end. When Monday morning rolled around it was right back to clean eating! Well, after polishing off those leftovers of course. So here it is Tuesday night and the guilt is settling in that I probably should have taken in lighter portions. I know I can’t be the only one who may have over-indulged over the weekend so here’s a fat burning detox recipe to help with digestion and get some of that soul food out of you.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Green Tea is the star of the show here as its antioxidants aids in speeding up the metabolic rate resulting in fat being burned even when you’re not active. It also re-hydrates the body and improves the immune system.

Mint not only gives water a cool, crisp refreshing taste but it’s also a calming, soothing herb that’s been used for centuries to aid upset stomachs and indigestion. It’s believed that mint improves the flow through the stomach which helps speed and ease digestion.

Lime also aids in digestion as its acidic juices breaks down food while stimulating the digestive system and increasing digestive fluids.
