Cooling Cucumber Mint Spa Water

Wake your body up with this delicious spa water. Cucumber is hydrating and a natural diuretic (which means it helps flush toxins out of your system). Mint is calming and cooling, and the scent alone will boost your energy levels. Sea salt helps replenish electrolytes which are essential for proper muscle recovery.

- 1 Persian cucumber, washed and sliced

- 5 mint leaves

- Dash high quality sea salt

1. Add all ingredients to a large mason jar or water bottle. This is best if you let it sit for a while - I love to make a big jar of this at night and keep it in the fridge to enjoy right when I wake up in the morning. 

Loving Lately June 2015

Wow!  Can you believe that we are nearing the end of June??  I know I can't.  Before the month really gets away from us, I want to share with you all the things that I've been loving this month

Here's what I'm currently craving and crushing on:

- Banana Nice Cream - It's really starting to heat up, so I've been finding myself craving a cool sweet treat.  While it's nice to go out for a vegan ice cream cone every once and a while, Banana Nice Cream is a healthiest every day choice.  Mix in some greens, protein powder, and healthy fats to make this treat more meal-like.  

- Cucumbers - One of my favorite cooling snacks - slice 'em up, sprinkle with some lemon juice and salt (and cayenne if you like a kick!) and crunch away.  They also make great dippers for guacamole and hummus. 

- Sparkling Probiotic Drinks - Bubbly that you can drink at any time of the day! My favorite brands are GTs Kombucha (try Original or Trilogy flavors), Health-Ade (mmm Grape!) and KeVita (Coconut and Lemon Ginger).  Do check the labels when purchasing these types of drinks - many contain TONS of sugar - go for the ones with less than 3g sugar per serving.  I've been drinking these drinks a lot more recently, so I think I will need to get back into brewing my own.

- doTERRA Serenity Essential Oil - I've been rubbing a drop of this on the bottoms of my feet before I go to bed and it puts me into the DEEPEST, most restful sleep!  If you are have trouble falling and staying asleep, I highly recommend trying this!  Purchase Serenity and other doTERRA oils here.
