When it comes to nutrition, I admit I am quite the mess. I now what I am suppose to be eating (or at least I think I do), but putting my plan into action is not always easy. In fact, eating the right foods, and getting enough water is my biggest downfall on my journey to being healthier. While I do hit the gym at least 5-6 days per week, my lack of water intake, and savory cravings can sometimes get the best of me.
Since I find myself turning to coffee most of the day rather than water I knew I needed to spruce up my water. Here in New England, cucumber and blueberry season are in full swing. I thought a Cucumber, Blueberry-Mint Detox Water would be the perfect drink to enjoy this week.
- 1/2 cup of blueberries
- 6-8 springs of mint sliced or whole
- 1 large cucumber diced
- ice water- I used a glass jug with a spout for easy access.
Simply add each of the ingredients to the water. Let your detox water sit in the fridge overnight to absorb all the fresh flavors of your fruits, and mint.
I love drinking this mixture because of the high antioxidant content of the cucumbers and blueberries. The morning is when I try to enjoy my first glass on an empty stomach. This helps to get my kidneys working early in the morning, and flush out any yuckies. I have to make this blend quite a few times each week since my family also loves it and it prevents us from becoming dehydrated.

The best part? Their services are available any day and all night from the comfort of your very own home! All you need is a iPad, iPhone, or computer, with speakers, a camera, and microphone to get started!
With Amwell, you can see primary care physicians that can diagnose minor illnesses and injury. I love that I can enter my healthcare history right on their site. Conveniently, they can even call in prescriptions to your local pharmacy for pickup. No more waiting in a germ infested doctor’s office for seemingly hours. I don’t know about you, but my time = money and I hate that my doctor’s office makes me wait upwards of an hour some days for quick fixes. Most of the time I already know I have a sinus infection, or earache and just need an antibiotic.

I really love this feature because I was wondering what foods I should be eating for muscle growth.
