Water Two Ways: Cucumber Lavender Water & Watermelon Mint Water

Lemon wwaterLast time, I shared the single most important thing you can do to improve your energy and your health, both today and long term: drink more water!

One of the things that gets in the way of drinking enough water for many of my patients is feeling like it’s ‘boring’ and I can totally understand that!

When you drink it all day long, every day, it sure can make you healthier, but it can also leave you wanting something special every now and then.

That’s when many people turn to wine, cocktails, or soda, which as you know, are all very acid-forming in the body.

So instead, I’ve got a better idea. Create your own delicious water ‘cocktails’. What could be more special than adding exotic ingredients to your water and staying alkaline in the process?

summer drink (cucumber, water, lemon)Today, I’ve got two recipes for you. Both are super easy to prepare and turn up the dial from your standard slice of lemon in your water, which is great for you too, by the way.

First is Cucumber Lavender Water.

Now that’s some serious spa water!

It smells good, it tastes good, and of course, it’s good for you.

You can find dried culinary-grade lavender at Whole Foods and other health food and specialty food stores.

Next is Watermelon Mint Water.

If you’ve never tried the flavors of watermelon and mint together, it’s one of my favorite combinations.

Not too sweet and plenty herbaceous, I think you’re really going to love it.

  1. Watermelon and mint water sounds great. I usually make a shake with that, but sometimes when you don´t feel like drinking something heavy as a shake is nice to have the light version with infused water. Never thought of it. Thanks for the recipe!
