Detox Spa Water

Again with this heat!

Ugh. What the fuck happened to spring?!

The heat makes me angry.

For my own safety, and that of those around me, I couldn't turn on the oven or stove or any device that emanates heat of any sort. I would have gone into a seething rage. I only wanted things that were chilled or ice-cold. Nothing hotter than room temperature was entering my body.

So, I made water.

Detox Spa Water, to be exact.

In case someone hasn't had "spa water," it's basically just water infused with fruits, veggies or herbs.

This is how it all went down:

I used a lot of ingredients in comparison to the water. I like an intense fruit taste and as many of the detoxifying properties as I can get, then I just top it off with more water when needed. If that doesn't tickle your fancy, or your business casual, just use the same amount of fruits but place them in a pitcher. Or keep the glass but use less fruit. Whatever.

So pretty.

I'm a sucker for pretty food floating in liquids.

Plus the all of these ingredients aid in purifying the body.

The strawberry & mint was my favorite.

The lemon & lime is going to be my new water to start the day, very good for digestion and metabolism.

The cucumber was very cucumber-y. Not bad. Not my fav, but it's an appetite suppressant.

Let me know what variations you would make.

I wanna try making a chia seed water. I'll post it on Instagram.
