The Skinny – Strawberry Lemon Water

My boyfriend and I have been on a health kick lately. I’ve asked my followers on Facebook if they would like for me to start posting healthy recipes at least once a week and they were all for it. I am super excited because that means less sugary sweets in the kitchen for me. Today I’m just posting a simple recipe for all of you non water drinkers. Everyone knows you are supposed to drink at least 8 glasses of water daily, and that’s just the minimum. For everyone that’s not so easy. Not everyone likes the taste. So here’s a simple solution to your problem.

    I love fruit in my water! For some reason I haven’t tried this combo. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I actually had some of this in a winery during a day of tasting in California. Today I am making the same for 4th of July but threw a few sprigs of Rosemary from my garden into the water.
