  • 24 oz water (warm, not boiling)
  • 1 lemon (organic)
  • ½ inch ginger (fresh, optional)


  • Cut the lemon in half and squeeze one half or the whole lemon into the water.
  • If using, peel and slice the ginger and add to the water.
  • Enjoy!


After drinking, swish with some plain filtered water for 30 seconds to make sure the citric acid from the lemon juice doesn't remain on teeth.
TIP: Zest the organic lemon first and store the grated zest in the freezer or dehydrate for easy use in recipes.
