Other Great Ways to Detox.

Despite the misconception, there are many ways to detox your whole body which don’t always require making your own recipe of drinks and teas. 

When it comes to natural home remedies, we often think that taking little steps won’t eventually bring us to the major milestones that we hope for. However, truth is–every big milestone occurs after several mini steps. Therefore, 3 Detoxes That You Should Be Doing More Often discusses some of the mini steps that you can take to ensure that your goal to ‘complete wellness’ happens before the year ends.

In addition, this post on 5 Ways To Support Your Natural Detoxification Systems talks about what a detox is, how the body detoxes itself naturally, and how to support those natural detoxification systems.

Why Add Thyme? Is There a Benefit?

Although thyme is a common garden herb, many people don’t understand the overall health benefits of using it in recipes such as a drink like this one. Thyme run in the mint family and acts as a great anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant agent

Therefore, adding this herb to other beneficial ingredients will only create a greater powerhouse effect!

Garnishes for Celery Pineapple Detox Mocktail

I’m all about big, edible garnishes in my mocktails. Here’s what I like to add to glasses for a fancier feel:

  • Fresh pineapple chunks. If you prefer a nice pronounced pineapple flavor, I would grill or char them.
  • Lime wedges. You can always slice the lime thin or into thick wedges for a fun look.
  • Fresh thyme sprigs. You could also use fresh parsley, mint or basil leaves for an added herby touch if preferred.
  • Celery stalks. If you prefer a nice look to your mocktails that show off the use of celery.
