Yes, you read that right. I started playing around with recipes for water, after a client told me she was getting tired of plain old H2O. It’s hard to get the recommended 8 glasses daily if you’d rather have something with flavor.
So here’s my suggestion for this summer day. Take a quart of cold, pure filtered water. Put it in a pretty glass or ceramic pitcher so it looks attractive and appealing. To it, add the freshly squeezed juice of 1/2 lime, a few lime slices and 1/4 cup of mashed raspberries. Stir it up and let it marinate in the fridge for a few hours. When you serve it (it turns a lovely pink), try wineglasses for a special touch. Make sure each glass gets a few of the mashed berries. It’s refreshing, slightly tart and sweet at the same time, and provides antioxidants along with a boost of flavor.
There’s no reason not to enjoy yourself while you’re eating and drinking healthfully!
