cucumber water

my mom sent me an email a couple weeks ago about the benefits of cucumbers.  too bad i can't find the email anymore :(
either way, i picked some up at the store that sunday and made it a point to be better at incorporating them into my diet.  i started with a cucumber tomato salad that i have made several times, so i knew that would be delish.
Recipe here.
i knew that eating fresh cucumbers every day would get rather boring so that lead me to some heavy research...

cucumber water
slice up a cucumber, put them in a pitcher of water, let it steep overnight and there you have it...cucumber water.
oh this is so awesome and refreshing first thing in the morning. cuc's are packed with vitamin A & C and are extremely hydrating which is very beneficial first thing in the morning since your body dehydrates over night (not to mention, great hydration for these HOT summer days).  each batch of water is good for about 2 days so my husband and i each drink a glass or 2 a day which ends up working out perfect.  i think i'll have another glass right now!
happy friday!

  1. I've heard that cucumber water is delicious, but I've never tried it. I might try it now. I bet you could add different fruits to make it even better!!
