It's not even June yet and we've already had a few days here and there when all you want to do is sit by a fan or in a pool! Another option that is somewhat more practical and still lets you get things done is to make yourself a cool, refreshing drink.
I'm trying to make healthier choices this summer, and one thing I can do better is to drink more water. Not only is it good for your body to stay hydrated, drinking something cold helps cool you down too. I don't know about you, but adding some flavor to plain water means I'll drink more of it. Are you with me?
Here's what you do.
Gather your ingredients: Fresh mint, a lemon and part of a cucumber.
Wash the mint and strip off the leaves.
Squeeze the juice of the lemon and slice the cucumber.
Place the cucumber slices, mint leaves and lemon juice in a glass pitcher.
Fill the pitcher with drinking water.
Let refrigerate an hour or two to become chilled and to let the flavors steep.
Enjoy your spa water over ice to make it even more refreshing!
Anyone else out there trying to stay cool this summer? Or trying to stay healthy?
