DELISH! Originally from 'The Flat Belly Diet,' a diet several clients of mine have followed (successfully!) in the past, this water is SO good. The lemon and cucumber are natural diuretics, the ginger and mint aids with digestion. Great way to boost your Spring detoxing! And get creative, there are sooo many other tasty fruits, herbs, etc that could be added I'm sure!
In a BIG pitcher (preferably glass) combine: 2 liters or 8 1/2 cups of fresh water (use good quality water, filtered if need be) 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated 1 medium cucumber, peeled and sliced thinly 1 medium lemon, sliced thinly 12 fresh mint leaves – spearmint or other
I also add a cut up lime... because I love lime.
WASH the fruits and veggies, cut, mix with water and enjoy. Letting it marinate overnight will of course allow the flavors to infuse the water a little more thoroughly.
