Recently, unique food and drink recipes have become extremely prominent on the web. With the help of the ever-so trendy Pinterest, food and drink bloggers everywhere are pinning their favorite recipes and cooking tips. A few that I have stumbled upon look absolutely delicious, for instance, Butternut Squash and Quinoa soup, Sweet Potato/Black Bean/Roasted Pepper Burritos, Sicilian Cauliflower Pasta. And then there are those popular recipes that look like they would either be served in a cafeteria or give you an instant clogged artery, like corn muffins stuffed with hot dogs, Avocado Egg Salad w/ mayo (cholesterol nightmare), or Buffalo Fried Chicken Enchiladas (including a stick of butter).
Many of the recipes I’ve checked out look great online….but they turn out to be a dud. But lately I had been seeing tons of posts on flavored water, and I decided I’d try it. I’m definitely one of those girls who loves lemon in their water, so when I tried this with multiple flavors, it was delicious! To flavor your water: fill a pitcher with water, toss in your desired fruit or vegetable, and let sit overnight in the fridge! I was skeptical at first, thinking that flavor wouldn’t come through, however, I was proved wrong. Here are a few ideas for flavoring your own water:
- Cucumber (really thinly sliced)
- Sliced Apples
- Lime/Mint leaf
- Strawberries/Vanilla Extract
So, if its not quite 5-o-clock somewhere and you’re in the mood for a refreshing, non-alcoholic beverage, try some flavored water!
