Refreshing Pitchers of flavoured water 

Print Friendly 

Description:
What could be more refreshing than those elegant, chilled pitchers of cucumber-infused water offered in spa waiting areas? You can bring the same sense of serenity and healthy indulgence home by making your own spa water with simple ingredients.


Ingredients:
Cucumber Water: peel off strips of cucumber skin to expose more of the flesh (and release more of the flavor) before slicing rounds and immersing them in a large pitcher of chilled water.

Rosemary Lime Water: float lime slices and twirl sprigs of thoroughly washed rosemary in a tall pitcher of cold water.

Watermelon Mint Water: Add chunks of watermelon (seeds removed) and mint leaves to water for an unusual flavor combination

Mint Water: Add two sprays of thoroughly washed mint and chill in fridge.


Directions:
Let the water mixtures steep for at least a half hour before serving; add ice according to preference.

Wellness Tip
Lots of Diets
Did you know that 65 million Americans go on a weight loss diet each year? And that as many as 48 million Americans are on a diet on any given day? Try on this idea: Dieting is not the solution for being overweight or obese. At best, diets are only a very temporary fix. Adopting gradual, but sustainable improvements to your eating and exercise habits are what can last you a lifetime.

“Chucking the Whole Onion”
We are first and foremost energetic beings then physical beings ie. we have an energy field surrounding our physical bodies (which can be measured by science) which responds to stimuli in our environment before our physical senses do. This energy field registers what is happening in your environment and then feeds the information to your body which then reacts. We interact with our environment through our energy field. Every experience we have ever had has the memory of that experience registered in our DNA and cellular memory. How can we release the negative emotional charge from these memories?
