Foodie Friday: Cucumber and Lemon Detox Water

Literally everybody I know is sick this week with either a stomach bug, the flu or a cold. I thought it would be an appropriate time to post one of my new favorite drinks. 
This Cucumber + Lemon Detox Water is refreshing, delicious and helps to cleanse your system. It’s also only three ingredients, so it’s super easy to make and store in the fridge! 
(see below for the benefits!)
Step 1: Slice 2 lemons and 1/2 of a cucumber and mix together in a large pitcher. 
Step 2: Pour in enough water to just about fill up the pitcher. 
 Step 3: Stir the mixture well and add ice and fresh mint (optional). Cover the top of the pitcher with plastic wrap and let the water soak up the flavors for a few hours in the fridge. Note: the longer you let it sit, the more flavorful the water will be.
