Cucumber water....
26 Jan 2014, 19:46
Hi

Can you think of an thing more disgusting than that??

Well, it's actually quite pleasant.

This fasting day I'm alternating beween that (a la a weight watcher!) and lemon juice.

Any advances??



(I seem to have risen a couple of pounds. I ve been on the bike quite a lot and fair bit of walking so I presume its the muscle effect. Waist is about the same. Seems like another plateau ...groan)

That's popular in spas out here. Sometimes they add a sprig of mint as well. It's very refreshing - but in the winter with the price of cucumbers, it aint cheap! LOL

Is it the same as infused water?
Fizzy water with fruit added for flavour, . I drink loads in the summer.
It's like pimms without the P.

Just take a big glass of water and let a couple of slices of cucumber sit in it for a bit in the fridge. Lovely!

Yes that's the same as infused water. Strawberries, kiwi, cucumber, grapes it was very nice and refreshing. Not quite the weather for it here
