This combo will help you drink more water! It breaks up the boringness (new word!) of water and gives you an energy buzz that lasts longer and feels a lot less jittery than caffeine! Plus, drumroll, please . . . there is no crash. The lemon, cuke and mint last for 2 – 3 days, too!
So ditch the diet (soda) and drink more water! Wa-dah! H2O!
You will need a lemon, a cuke (real cukes in summer are even better!), mint (real mint grown in real dirt is even better!), a sharp knife and a cutting board.
Now, throw some mint leaves into a pitcher or sweet jar like this. Now bruise the leaves. Go ahead! Do it!
Toss your fruit in on top. Is cucumber a fruit? Hm.
Chug, refill, repeat.
