One of my new Bostonian roommates, Perin, has this really neat infusing pitcher (found here). You put whatever you want in the middle and it seeps into the surrounding water; it’s so tasty and refreshing. Inspired by her new pitcher, here’s another really easy way to fill your water bottle before work, a run, the gym, and have a simple, deliciously different refreshment for the day: Blueberry, Pomegranate & Lemon Water. Can’t wait to go buy some ginger, cucumbers, melon, mint . . . Let the experimenting begin!
If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been slowly gearing up for this “How to” Maintain Winter Wellness.” Superfood tea, naturally flavored water . . . all ways to try to give your immune system a quick boost during this cold weather. I wish there was a special formula to stay healthy through the winter. Maybe a dash of good luck is all that’s needed, but I do believe there’s something to be said for eating well to prevent sickness. With the flu season upon us, we already know it’s a gamble. Getting sick? No thank you. You wouldn’t run a marathon tomorrow without training, so why not do everything in your power to keep you balanced for tomorrow? Here are some ideas of what I like to incorporate in recipes to help my body stay healthy during the cold winter months ahead.
