Summer is almost here and we need to keep on top of our wellbeing. Very crucial part of it is to stay hydrated. My problem is that I do not really like just plain water.
Juices and soft drinks contain huge amount of sugar so it’s best to avoid them. But you can flavour your water and get a really nice drink with no extra calories or anything else to worry about.
The Cucumber and Mint Flavoured Water is a perfect solution for someone like me.
Easy healthy and delicious!
5 Mint Sprigs
1l Pure Mineral or Filtered Water
Pinch of Salt (optional)
1. First of all, wash the cucumber and slice it any way you want. Just make sure your pieces fit into the glass jar/bottle that you are going to use.
2. Put the cucumber, mint and pinch of salt (if using) into the jar/bottle and pour the water over it.
3. Keep in a fridge. When you finish the bottle, reuse the cucumber and mint for up to 2 – 3 times by just adding more water.
Cucumber in itself is a great hydrator. 95% of it is water!
In 2010, a report from The European Food Safety Authority suggested that the minimum levels of water consumption should be 2 litres for men and 1.6 litres for women, or between eight and ten glasses – by The Independent.
