Refreshing Pitchers of flavoured water 

Print Friendly 

Description:
What could be more refreshing than those elegant, chilled pitchers of cucumber-infused water offered in spa waiting areas? You can bring the same sense of serenity and healthy indulgence home by making your own spa water with simple ingredients.


Ingredients:
Cucumber Water: peel off strips of cucumber skin to expose more of the flesh (and release more of the flavor) before slicing rounds and immersing them in a large pitcher of chilled water.

Rosemary Lime Water: float lime slices and twirl sprigs of thoroughly washed rosemary in a tall pitcher of cold water.

Watermelon Mint Water: Add chunks of watermelon (seeds removed) and mint leaves to water for an unusual flavor combination

Mint Water: Add two sprays of thoroughly washed mint and chill in fridge.


Directions:
Let the water mixtures steep for at least a half hour before serving; add ice according to preference.

Wellness Tip
Sponges and Kitchen Germs
Keep your kitchen sanitary. Our registered dietitian recommends washing sponges carefully and replacing them regularly. Sponges can harbor bacteria. These may recontaminate your dishes and countertops. Wash sponges in the hot cycle of your dishwasher, or disinfect them in a chlorine bleach solution.

Recipe
Spicy Vegan White Bean Chili - Slow Cooker
Category: Slow Cooker!
Description: This recipe calls for Cumin which is an herb that many associate with Mexican and Spanish foods, but it is also widely used in Middle Eastern and Indian cooking. It has a very distinct flavor, and is most often used in packaged taco seasonings (don’t eat those- make your own!)

Cumin’s flavour makes it a favorite for many, but it’s health supporting properties are impressive too!

Cumin is a good source of Iron, Manganese, and other vitamins and minerals. Some research shows that cumin can stimulate the production of pancreatic enzymes and help digestion. One study found that cumin was protective against memory loss and the damaging effects of stress on the body.

Another study evaluated the antioxidant content of Cumin and found it more effective than other common antioxidants including Vitamin C.
