Gla’s Spa Water

Gla's Spa Water

Want to know a little secret? Sometimes, I get a little bored with water. Blasphemous, I know. But, c’est la vie. It’s true.

You can imagine my delight when my mom, “Gla,” discovered a refreshing take on H2O. Calorie free, flavorful and good for your skin, your digestion and your overall well-being, Gla’s Spa Water is a must-have year-round. Although the below recipe calls for a large pitcher, reduce the ingredients by half and make it in your liter-sized Nalgene or other BPA-free water bottle.


Gla’s Spa Water
In a large pitcher, combine the following:

– 1 sliced cucumber
– 1-2 sliced lemons
– 1-2 sliced limes
– 1 sliced orange
– A couple of sprigs of mint leaves
– A grated knob of ginger (1-2 inches, peeled) 

Chill for 4-6 hours or even overnight for the most robust flavor and nutrient-dense experience. Without discarding the ingredients, you can continue to refill the pitcher with water for a few days, at which point, you’ll want to replace the fruit, veggies and herbs with fresh.
