I always recommend consuming half of your body weight in ounces of water. For example, if you weigh 120lbs get in at least 60 ounces. Water helps to flush out toxins and boost your metabolism to burn fat more efficiently. Some people find it hard to drink plain water so liven it up with fresh fruits, veggies and herbs. I personally love this recipe, but you can throw in sliced oranges, pineapple, peaches etc.
By making a big ol’ pitcher you want to keep going back for more. I do recommend making a fresh pitcher daily because overnight the water will taste too strong.
- 2 sliced limes
- 1 sliced lemon
- handful of fresh mint
- 1 sliced cucumber
- 1 gallon of water
- 1 large pitcher
Another one of my favorites is sliced pineapple, fresh cut strawberries and mint or pineapple and cucumber
- Toss the sliced limes and lemon into the pitcher
- Grab a handful of fresh mint and rub it in your hands to activate the oils in the leaves
- Throw the mint into the pitcher, add in 2 cups of the water and grab a large spoon to press all of the ingredients down
- Add in the cucumber
- Add in the remainder of the gallon of water
