Cranberry Aloe Detox Drink

Since Cameron and I started eating gluten free in December (he has an allergy to it) we have noticed some pretty positive changes. We both lost weight, we feel better, all of our other allergies (seasonal, food, environmental) have all improved as well.

After about 4 months though we kind of hit a weight-loss plateau. After a friend told us about some of the benefits of drinking aloe, we did a little research and found this article.

We decided to give this drink a try!

We messed with the recipe a bit (not enough water = too tart to drink, too much aloe = tastes like a sunburn) And found this to be the best combo.

4 oz Cranberry
(make sure it is JUST cranberry, no added fruit flavors, no added sugar)
4 oz Aloe
8 oz Water

These are the brands they have locally at Publix

BE SURE TO DRINK IT FIRST THING IN THE MORNING ON AN EMPTY STOMACH

All in all drinking this daily has made us both feel better, and helped us drop a few more pounds each (mostly bloat I think). We can both notice a difference when we don't drink it. I would definalry recommend you give it a try!

SIDE NOTE - This stuff is expensive at Publix, I have been able to find the cranberry cheaper at Kroger but not by much. Let me know if you have seen it for a good deal!)
