Detox: Turmeric Tonic Water

I find in the winter I sometimes forget to stay hydrated, as in the cold weather I find it harder to keep track of my thirst level. And without sufficient hydration we can feel worn out and lethargic. 

Overall we experience higher stress levels and feeling drained during the holiday season. This Turmeric Tonic is both cleansing and detoxifying and feels really great to drink after a night of over-indulging, something we're prone to this time of the year!

I don’t like to add any sweetener to this, but feel free to add agave or liquid honey to your preference.
