Last Bits of Manila Summer


Yummy, refreshing, home made, bloat-fighting flavoured water

…and I’m spending it in the pool as much as I could.


Swimming is an amazing, cooling workout (and allows me to work on my tan).

Now. I’m not Adriana Lima (how I wish I could have that body, though!), nor do I aspire to be. I’m 32, my metabolism has shot itself ages ago, and my genes are going against me… At a certain point, I have to be realistic.

I just have to make sure I show a little less belly in my bathing suits.

With that in mind, I’ve had to increase my fitness “regimen”… Eating less (I’m missing pizza!), eating more veggies, having regular yoga sessions, and finding time to work out.

What does that have to do with beverages, you ask?

I found a recipe online that reduces bloating and refresh you at the same time.

You basically have a pitcher of water, put it some lemon slices (I like TONS of it), cucumber, mint, ginger, and a little apple cider vinegar.

It’s actually very refreshing, and I did notice an improvement with the bloating.

Admittedly, I don’t possess enough patience (or time) to assemble it myself. This is also my runabout way of thanking our super awesome yaya for making sure there is always a pitcher ready for me.
