Sorry guys, but I 100% don’t care about your January diet. I mean, you do what you gotta do, but I can’t get on board with that nonsense. Of course, you should in no way be looking to me as an eating role model. I have atrocious habits and indulgent taste, and I’ve given up on trying to deny them. I know you’ll all be saying I told you so when I get heart disease or diabetes, but I just can’t be happy and on a diet at the same time.
I am, however, on a constant quest to drink more water. It’s always been something I struggle with. I’ve learned a little flavor goes a long way toward getting those eight glasses down. Not that I’ve ever actually had eight glasses of water in one day in my life. It’s a journey.
Lime Ginger and Lemongrass Infused Water makes me feel like I might be rehydrating in Thailand. That somehow makes it more exciting. I like playing tricks on my mind for health reasons.
I’m not claiming any magical properties with this infusion. It’s probably not going to detoxify you in any way. That is totally not a thing. It’s just going to make you feel fancy. Accept it and smile.
This mixture can get bitter after a while, so if you don’t drink it within the first two hours, strain it into some jars and toss away your fruits, roots, and herbs.
We don’t really need to write out a recipe card, right? Slice up a lime and a one inch piece of peeled ginger root. Cut the ends off two stems of lemon grass and then cut them into two or three pieces. Put all of this in a pitcher and fill it up with cold water. Drink it within two hours or strain and stash in the fridge. Done.
Let’s be more active, drink more water, and eat whatever the hell we want because nobody really knows how weight works anyway. Love you.
