Chill Out With Spa Water

That’s what I like to call it, anyway.

How many times have you been to the gym, the yoga studio or the spa and partaken of the lemon mint infused water offered in the lobby area or lounge?

It’s ridiculously easy to make your own and, in the heat of the summer, create an incredibly refreshing drink with a little more pizzaz than plain old tap water.

Nothing wrong with that, of course (depending on where you live and the water quality), but if you’re trying to come up with something interesting to drink and you’d rather not down an 800-calorie whippy coffee drink or spend $12 on a green juice, this is an easy, cost effective alternative.

Simply pour filtered water into a large glass pitcher and add some slices of whatever fruit, fresh herbs or even some veggies, you have on hand, such as:

  • Lemon
  • Lime
  • Orange
  • Cucumber
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Fresh ginger 

Let it sit in the fridge and make this a regular part of your Hour in the Kitch prep!  Bring it with you to work or school in whichever type of to-go drink container you have (go for glass if possible).

You can also make it with sparkling water; I, for one, love the taste of Badoit with cucumber!

Serve it at your next dinner party, too, as it’s yet one more example of how lovely and colorful something so simple, and completely Paleo, a food (or, in this case, a drink) can be.
