However, there is a reality in all this… and for me, that reality is figuring out how to “do it all” without draining my backpacker’s bank account. I’ve been “on the go” traveling for the better part of 2 years, which means the majority of my money gets funneled right into my adventures.
BUT, I also want to remain as healthy and vibrant as possible. Can you relate with trying to stay healthy on a budget? Don’t worry, I’ve got your back.
Last year, I spent the first 3 days of 2015 doing the 3 Day 3 Dollar Detox, which was VERY effective, but also highly challenging. This year, I wanted to keep within the theme of “simple and cheap,” so I headed to my cabinets and whipped up this $1 healing tonic.
WHAT Is The $1.00 Healing Tonic?
It is a simple blend of 4 natural and powerful ingredients that you can quickly and easily make anytime – anywhere. This tonic can jumpstart your morning by hydrating your body while also helping you get rid of “the gunk” – AKA the toxins that cause you to feel weak, tired and foggy-brained.
WHY Does It Work?
The basic $1 Healing Tonic uses the following 4 ingredients. Check out the benefits of each ingredient below:
|Fresh Lemon Juice||
