As I told you, some of my French family was visiting this month. And, to enjoy, indulge, celebrate, I did drink more wine than usual, eat more bread than usual. I had fun! However, now, my body feels a little off. I am now trying to get back on track… Not easy! I miss my sugar fix after lunch, I did indulged AGAIN yesterday, you’ll see on Instagram.
On another note, our mini garden that we did for Food revolution has been a half success: We got a few peas, not that many. The kids loved it. The carrots… well, they got taken over by the cucumbers. Carrots are out the picture now, but the cucumbers are numerous to the joy of the kids.
Since I indulged quite a bit and cucumbers are all over… Do you follow me? Yes? No? How about a healthy cleanser flavoured water? Bring it on! My lovely neighbour showed me a
little big stash of mint so here I go for a few leaves a the scented plant! Add some lime. And let it set. Does it get any simpler? I mean I am sharing my recipe anyway but you know, sometimes you need the idea! You’re welcome 🙂
BONUS! Not only it is quenching your thirst, it tastes good and it is good for you!
– MINT is good for your digestive system, it relaxes it.
– LIME stimulates and helps to regulate your digestive track.
– CUCUMBER has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
This was really interesting reading on those 3 ingredients and all the good it brings to you! I am really interested into looking more into the power food to boost our family immune system before the cold arrives.
And you, what do you do to stay healthy and keep a body in great shape? Tell me, I want to know more and put into place new habits we may not have.
Cheers to your healthy you for back to school! Or back to work!
