My Detox Water is not your traditional kind of water, it contains all of the components to make you feel good. It cleans out your kidneys, helps with bloating, it’s great for the skin and helps detoxify any bad germies in your system. As a plus for me it works great to help with your digestive system. It’s made with fresh cucumber, lemon slices, lime slices, grapefruit slices, fresh sliced ginger and fresh mint leaves. The breakdown of each ingredient is this: Lemons, grapefruit and limes – Citrus fruit helps detoxify the kidneys, and the lemon has antioxidant compounds called limonoids that activate detoxifying enzymes. Ginger – Is a digestive tonic that aids circulation. Peppermint – is a natural appetite suppressant and antimicrobial that eliminates germs in food and makes you feel fuller. Cucumber – It fresh, helps de-puff your body and is excellent for your skin. I make this water before I go to bed so I have it first thing when I wake up before your morning cup of coffee. I recommend drinking at least 8 cups of this water a day. I try to go 10 cups.
Cucumber Grapefruit Water – water infused with fresh slices of cucumber and Ruby Red grapefruit. This tasty drink is refreshing, and a great way to boost your health and keep you hydrated!

Val is self-taught and absolutely, without a doubt has a gift which is so very apparent in every single dish. While I was working one day, it came up in conversation that Dan, who had also worked as a server there, would give his guests a choice of regular ice water or cucumber water. I had never heard of such a thing. Cucumbers in water? Of course, I had to try it.
It is by far one of THE best meals I’ve ever had. Seriously. And I’m not just saying that because I worked there.
Many days I would be finishing up my work when Val, the chef, and Dan, the sous chef would come into work to prepare dinner for the evening. I must say that if you are ever in the Sugar Hill / Franconia / Littleton / White Mountains of New Hampshire, you must, absolutely MUST call to make a dinner reservation.
At the very least, if you’re drinking a lot of pop (soda), homemade flavoured water /infused water is going to be way healthier than that is, so you’re definitely doing yourself a favour if you give it a try!
