#FitnessFriday: Cucumber Jalapeño Mint Water

The title may be a little off putting, but infused water is my go to. While many juices contain far too much sugar, infused water is a much healthier alternative. Instead of providing you with a basic “strawberry-lemon” idea for your infused water I wanted to choose something a little different.
So why this combination? Cucumbers help to reduce bloating and are a great source of water. Jalapeños aide in increasing your internal temperature, and metabolism. Mint, which is a key ingredient in a number of my favourite beverages, and my own daily infused water regiment assists in digestion. I found this recipe on infusedwater.com 

What you need:

(makes 32 oz ball jar)

  • 3″ of cucumber (English or regular), sliced
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper, de-seeded
  • 1 sprig of organic mint leaves

Have a favourite infused water recipe? I want to hear it! Leave me a comment below, or tweet me @thenikkisin using #FitnessFriday! And stay tuned every week for all new #FF posts.
