Only 12 more days until the 30 day wellness challenge ends and chef and I have had fantastic results. We have eliminated ALL fast, fried and processed foods from our diet as well as white flour easily as we have been doing that for a while. However, despite our rising to the challenge, we haven’t risen fully, LOL, as we have consistently had a few items containing sugar or artificial sweeteners, i.e, diet coke and a couple of items with alcohol, i.e., mixed drinks or beer.
So, it appears, chef and I have the healthy food thing down but not the healthy drink thing. That being said, we have begun our quest for healthy, yet tasty, drinks and it hasn’t been easy so far. We have created, and haven’t liked, a number of drinks to date. So far, however, the two most enjoyable drinks have been our homemade gingerale and infused pear water. For those of you who want to replace soda, chemically flavored waters (read the labels), and sugar laden or calorie laden drinks with healthier options, yet, are bored with plain water, here’s an alternative we recommend.
Place all ingredients in your pitcher of choice.
Fill with ice
Fill will fresh water
Stir and refrigerate for an hour
It can’t be much simpler than this and the water will last for up to three days. Additionally, the fruit is edible!
PS. There is no specific amount of each item so play with the ingredients until it’s the way you enjoy! Bottoms up.
