Yes, this is how I go about it. This is the best thing to do to cut down your sugar intake. Of course, there are days in a year when you cannot follow your healthy regimen.
These are the days when you are holidaying. I am in my sasural (in-law's place) and have had an overload of unhealthy stuff, since there was a big family function here that continued for days and days. Then we got feast invitations from relatives. We have had so many feasts that the word feast now sounds like beast to me ! Fortunately, feasts are over now and we are getting to eat healthy home-made stuff by my dearest MIL, who is a bundle of talent and has some amazing culinary skills.
Now let's come back to my detox drink, because if I start talking about my sasu ma, I will forget the recipe.
We have been using fennel or saunf since childhood for stomach ailments. We also use it when brewing tea. I love my tea with a hint of masala!
Often used as a mouth freshener, fennel is a time-tested ancient herbal remedy for digestion. Belonging to the parsley family, fennel is a powerhouse of metabolism boosting nutrients and rich in vitamins, including B1, B2, B3, and minerals.Surprisingly, it is packed with fiber, which makes it a natural appetite suppressant. Metabolism is the speed at which your body uses energy from food.
What's more, fennel helps in the digestion of fats in liver and removes toxins from the body. SO what are you waiting for? Start chewing fennel seeds today to detoxify your body, freshen your breath, clear your sinus, and manage weight happily!!
I have prepared a detox drink with fennel. While you can simply brew fennel and soak them in water overnight to enjoy the full benefits of detoxification, you may want to mix it with lemon to double the benefits.
Do check the benefits of Himalayan sea salt here.
Here's my simple recipe:
1 tsp- saunf (fennel seeds)
2 cups of water
Himalayan pink salt/sendha namak/sindhi namak- 2 fat pinches or more
1/2 tsp- goond katira (optional)
