If you are interested in getting your body into ketosis, you should probably know that it comes with some crazy side effects. One of those is really bad breath. While having bad breath isn’t usually considered a good thing, it’s actually a GREAT when thing when it comes to ketosis. Bad breath is a sign that your body is producing ketones. Think of it as fat leaving your body every time you exhale that awful breath.
I created this homemade Keto Electrolyte Lemonade as a way to fight bad breath and stay hydrated while in ketosis. This lemonade is great because it also helps fight the keto flu. See, when your body is used to burning sugar for fuel, and you start to deprive your body of those sugars, there is a little period of time where your body is super confused. It hasn’t made its way to using your stored fat as fuel yet and it’s kinda freaking out. This is called the keto flu. One way to fight it is with electrolytes, like the ones I’ve packed into this keto electrolyte lemonade.
Homemade Keto Electrolyte Lemonade
1 – 2 cups of water
½ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 – 2 Tablespoons Aloe Vera Juice (if you haven’t tried Aloe Vero Juice before, I recommend starting with `1 tablespoon and working your way up)
¼ teaspoon Pink Himalayan Salt
Bonus Ingredient: I always add 1 teaspoon of collage powder as well. It improves digestion, supports a leaky gut, and strengthens your hair, skin, and nails.
Pour the ingredients into an air tight mason jar, twist on the lid, and shake. Refrigerate or pour over ice and enjoy!
