Hello All!

On my quest to distroy my office butt, I have decided to first begin my journey by drinking a gallon of water a day to cleanse my body and get it on track to lose weight the healthy way.  Well yesterday was day 1..... and although I came very close to drinking a gallon of water, I didn't quite make it. However, I did discover some yummy combinations of fruit, veggies and spices to use to turn tap water into a very yummy treat.

Delicious combinations include:

  • Cucumber Slices
  • Lime
  • Lemon
  • Strawberry Slices
  • Lemon Balm or Lemon Grass
  • Lemon Grass, Cucumber and Lime
  • Mint and Lime
  • Mint, Lime, Strawberry
  • Cucumber Mint
  • Orange

 

Tips:

For Mint, Lemon Grass, Lemon Balm - crush or tear the leaves

For cucumber water - Let the water sit for at least 30 min before enjoying

 

Anyone else have a good go-to water infusing recipe? Please comment and share!
