Unrecipe of the Week: Spa Water

June 25, 2012

With the heat index souring, it is important to stay hydrated. This spa water not only hits the spot, it also has natural properties to beat the bloat.

Peppermint and ginger are both known to soothe the stomach and G.I. tract, while the lime adds a tangy shot of vitamin C. Cucumber helps flush excess water from our systems.  While it seems counter-intuitive to drink water to rid your body of excess water, it actually works!

Stay cool, stay hydrated and enjoy!!!

Spa Water:

one handful of fresh mint leaves

1 lime, scrubbed and sliced

1 small chunk of peeled ginger

1/2 of a cucumber, scrubbed and sliced

Toss the ingredients into a pitcher, fill with water and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. Strain before drinking.
