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
Stretch Your Back
Begin on your hands and knees. Slide your hands and arms out in front of you so that your torso forms one long sloping line from your fingertips to your tailbone. Breathe smoothly; reach forward with your fingertips while you keep your hips in line with your knees. Hold for about 30 seconds. Relax and then repeat. If you have back problems, first consult the professional who treats you before performing this stretch.

Description: Eggs! They are one of the more inexpensive and impressive forms of protein, containing 9 essential amino acids. There are obvious parts of an egg: the white and the yolk. The yolk is the egg's major source of vitamins and minerals, but also fat and cholesterol. However, the yolk also contains an enzyme that helps us digest cholesterol. The white is made mainly of protein. To get the health benefits without excessive fat, eat one yolk per thee whites!
*Healthy Fact!*Naturally raised free run chickens have dark rich yellow yolks whereas the typical factory farmed egg is pale in colour. The darker the yolk, the more vitamin dense it is. This is because of the high quality suitable food the chickens eat and the fact that they are living in a cruelty free environment.
