natural diuretic

In food ideas, pinterest project on June 6, 2012 at 12:07 pm

I was inquiring about other diuretics that could help me maintain my somewhat girlish figure since I am in a wedding this coming Saturday and my friend  Leslie suggested her favorite soup!   It’s filled to the brim with tasty veggies and tilapia!  I was telling her how much diurex pills makes me feel like a dying water buffalo and I needed  a better and healthier solution!  Ya know, one that doesn’t suck the life out of you.  SO!  for the next 3 days this is what I will be eating for breakfast and lunch… Thanks Les!


1. Boil about 4 cups of water and with lots of celery and celery leaves (you can use the inside pieces of the celery stalk – the ones that are skinnier and not as crispy – I always seem to have these left over), little bit of diced onion, 1/2 of a tomato (optional), fresh garlic (or garlic powder), small chunk of ginger root (or dash of ginger powder) and favorite herbs (I use parsley). Cook until celery is soft – the water should reduce to about half.
2. Add in 2-3 tbsp apple cider vinegar (BRAGGS brand – can get at health food store for like 5$), continue cooking on low.
3. Add in tilapia – I put in about 3 servings – so about 20 oz raw.
4. Simmer until fish is done. Put in bowl – refrigerate and it is best eaten the next two days with some CRYSTAL hot sauce.
