In celebration of being a guest blogger on Angie’s blog, I have decided to write some benefits of the best ways to drink water, by adding cucumber or lemons!


Benefits of Cucumber:

-acts as a diuretic

-removes accumulated pockets of old waste and chemical toxins

-juice is nourishing for our skin and hair

-may alleviate sunburns pain (if applied directly on it)

-may aid in treatment of arthritis (by eliminating uric acid)



Benefits of Lemons:

-may relieve digestive problems when mixed with hot water

-acts as an anti-aging remedy by removing wrinkles and blackheads

-may assist in getting rid of toothaches

-aids in fighting off throat infections, sore throat and tonsillitis

-makes weight lose easier

-controls high blood pressure (high in potassium)

-aids in curing respiratory problems

-can aid in treating arthritis and rheumatism

-helps break fevers by increasing perspiration

-acts as a blood purifier


Some neat ideas on adding them to water:

-you can toss in lemons OR cucumbers in your glass and drink up

-add a sprig of mint to your water with cucumber

-add a few raspberries to your cucumber water

-add some honey to a warm glass of lemon water

-MIX the cucumber and lemons together!


Both lemon water and cucumber water are refreshing ways to get in your water, without adding the water flavours full of sugar or full of aspartame.  They are also great to serve to guests, make up a jug of each the night before, leaving the slices in for decoration.  Just before you bring them out, add some ice cubes to keep cold, your guests will be in for a nice treat!


Thank you for visiting my blog today in celebration of my guest blog for Angie :)


OH!  If you have any other ideas for drinking your water in a yummy way, please share in the comment section!

I love adding a little lemon to my water. It's so refreshing on a hot summers day! I've never tried cucumber in water - I think I'll give it a shot.

Found you through Angie's blog. Peace. ;)
