It has been a minute since I posted any or shared with you all. The last few weeks have been rather difficult….seasonal allergies, hay fever, outbreaks, food allergies you name it and its like I have experienced more than I ever want to relive. On top of it I had to attend seminars and classroom sessions at Residency. Just a burdensome time within a 7week period. I must say being a believer my faith, helped me during these trials in my life. It would have been easy to seek comfort in all the available comfort foods and talk to whomever would listen. Unfortunately with growth comes changes.
At the beginning of my ordeal I had just joined a Small Bible Study group of women to study Beth Moore’s “Breaking Free. I must say sharing and studying this book totally freed me of the pain and fears from my past. I learned how God created my past to help me get through life now and I clearly see the direction and the life that’s ahead for me. Overall I have developed a relationship, an intimacy with The Lord, no more bondage, I have learned to say no. In keeping my mind healthy I have also taken the extra step to keep my body healthy so my eating habits have also changed. I have decreased my sugar and carb intake and started eating more salads and protein. Yikes, yuck but it it’s getting better. As a result I am loving DIY Fruit Infused Water daily
For years I have loved spa water that’s right the water with the slices of fruit when you go the spa but I never tried it at home. Well finally this year on my quest to being healthier and to consume more water I added a few packets of liquid or powdered fruits however my taste buds did not like the after taste from those additives.
If you are like me and experiencing the same then you should try this:-
Grab some fresh fruit, small berries Or Slice some vegetables and make it a way of life because fresh fruits, vegetables and water infused together actually helps to improve concentration and keeps your body hydrated………..
on the quest of good health and improved concentration for the hot months approaching buy less pastries or use the fruits before they go bad get a pitcher, water bottle and water preferably natural artesian or alkaline water to get your pH levels where they need to be:
strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, cucumber, ginger, mint leaves, lemon basically add a handful of these fruits or vegetables to a large pitcher or water bottle keep them refrigerated and you can sip all day. If you are on the go like me most of the day then an/a fruit infused water bottle would be ideal for you. Drop your fruits or vegetables into a infuser insert with perforation so that the fruit/vegetable can properly infuse. This can be done overnight or right before you are headed out. There you go fresh healthy water on the go, tasting so good and refreshing which reduces your intake of sugar filled juices and carbonated beverages.
Give it a try do it yourself today, stay hydrated and healthily avoid the juices with improper labeling for corporate and commercial benefits which offers no substance to your body. drink more infused water and less sugar filled juices and you will discover a difference in your body, mind and health. for the next 21 days I will be challenging my mind and body to go against carbs and sugar, will you join the challenge? it will be a struggle but you can do it too and guess what if you forget momentarily because we all get cravings don’t fight or beat up yourself. Just toss the rest of the uneaten foods and get something healthier and better for you in the long run.
It’s all Mind Over Matter anyway so have infused water everyday.
