It’s HOT in my neck of the woods. Temperatures have been unusually high for this early in the summer.
One of the best ways to stay healthy this summer is to stay hydrated.
Now I know what you’re thinking… water is dull and boring.
It’s also necessary.

One simple tip I’d like to share with you today to encourage you to stay hydrated is:

2. Slice lemons as thin or as thick as you desire.
3. Place lemons in a single layer on a cookie sheet.
4. Freeze for at least one hour (or until frozen).
5. Remove from cookie sheet and place lemon slices in a labeled freezer bag and back into the freezer until ready for use.
6. Place 1 – 2 lemons in a glass and fill with cold water. The lemon slices will flavor your water.
*Helpful hint: You may use fresh lemons each day, but if you would like your lemons to last longer than a day, simply place them in the refrigerator and reuse until they lose their flavor.
This can be done with any other fruit, particularly limes, oranges, grapefruit, etc.
Fresh cucumber slices are delicious in water, as are mango slices, fresh mint, and fresh cilantro. You could try fresh ginger slices or pomegranate seeds.
You could also add a splash of fruit juice or sparkling water.
