Week 2 of mission drink more water! This recipe is pretty stinkin refreshing – and I’m not a cucumber fan. My oldest daughter loves cucumber, so between the two of us, this water disappears pretty fast.
Last week I mentioned why you might want to ditch the soda. This week I thought I’d share why more water:
- Our bodies require water
- Dehydration leads to headaches, fatigue and depression
- Promotes weight loss
This recipe uses only two ingredients – making it really cheap. To make mine cheaper, I grow mint at home. It grows like a weed and it can handle the neglect of which I’m woefully guilty. And it can grow on a windowsill in the dim winter light just fine. That makes this recipe uber cheap. All you need to purchase is the cucumber. I like to remove the seeds from my cucumber. I dunno why. It just makes for one more step. It’s not necessary, so leave this step out if you choose.
Cucumber Mint Water
- 1 small cucumber sliced
- 3-4 mint leaves
Add cucumber and mint to a pitcher and cover with 1/2 gallon of water. Let steep for several hours and be sure to drink within a day or two.
