Alarm goes off. 

Snooze gets hit. 

Alarm goes off. 

Snooze button. 

Alarm goes off. 

Snoozzzzzzzzeeeee.

Ever wake up feeling more tired than the night before and just not ready to hit the ground running?

I always seem to feel this way when I don’t drink enough water the previous day. But, sometimes drinking 8 glasses of water a day is super hard unless I am sweating like crazy on the farm–which let’s face it, is NOT happening when I am mostly working the farm office these days.

I have come to learn that fruit-infused water is a delicious way to get your daily recommended intake of water to keep your body’s natural detoxification organs like the kidneys and liver functioning properly. 

And, I personally think strawberry water tastes the best. Amiright??

Make up a big glass jug of this and keep it in the fridge for refills throughout your day, and I promise, you’ll wake up with a spring in the step the next morning.

Strawberry Detox Water

A crisp and refreshing detox water with flavours of strawberry, cucumber, mint, lemon & lime. Perfect for rehydrating on a hot summer day. Getting your daily recommended 8 glasses of H2O has never been so delicious.

1 large Cucumber, thinly sliced

2 small Limes or Lemons, thinly sliced

0.5 oz Fresh Mint Leaves (about 3 sprigs)

8-9 cups Water (about 2 liters)

Rinse and wash the strawberries, cucumber, limes/lemons, and mint leaves

Thinly slice Strawberries, cucumber and lemon, lime

Combine all ingredients in a large glass pitcher and enjoy
