Finding ways to force myself out of hibernation has definitely been a challenge lately, and each time I leave the house I feel like a groundhog being pulled out of my little cozy space.
Since I’m pretty dependent on my morning coffee/tea, I try to limit my intake of sugary drinks throughout the day. It’s really challenging though, and I find myself drinking more than I know I should. This past weekend my plan was to fool myself into drinking more water and less sugar – in a delicious way. I love anything citrus – oranges, lemons, limes – you name it. So after a quick Google search, I came across a number of combinations using the citrus fruits I had on hand.
The recipe is simple – slice oranges, lemons, limes, (you can substitute or omit as well) and add water. Be sure to squeeze the orange in the water before adding your fruit slices, it helps to enhance the flavor. The next step – adding mint- is completely optional but it adds a refreshing component that I love. It’s only been a few days, but so far so good. Hopefully I can kick my sugar habit for good! Well, not for good, but you get the idea.
