In the hot summer months, keeping cool and staying hydrated is important. As the temperatures rise, so does the body’s need for water. Even mild dehydration can have us feeling tired, unhappy, and irritated not to mention lead to a decrease in physical performance. By staying hydrated you will feel more empowered and enjoy summer so much more!
Water is the most essential nutrient and drinking enough water should be a priority. Water infusions have become a popular way to make plain water a little more appealing and exciting!
This recipe is super refreshing and uses cucumber, lemon, and ginger. Not only does it add a little more zing to your sip, but there is no added sugar or calories which gives you the same benefits of drinking regular water, and even more. This flavoured water infusion recipe will prove a great pick-me-up for those long hot, hazy summer afternoons- especially with the kick from the lemon and ginger.
Cucumbers are naturally very hydrating because of their high water content.
Lemon juice provides some vitamin C which functions as an important antioxidant and is involved in many important body processes.
Ginger is traditionally associated with supporting digestion and adds a subtle hint of spice to the flavour of this water.
Keep cool, well hydrated and happy summer!
