water and the alternatives (recipes)

I have horrible time drinking water it is absolutely horrible you damn near have to put agun to my head well i found some alternatives that i am going to try. i have to because i have a kidney stone :(.  these recipes have added benefits for the skin and hair, so ummm lets drink up i guess.

Sassy H2O

2 liters of Water
1 tsp ginger grated
1 medium cucumber
1 medium lemon sliced
12 spearmint leaves.

mix and let sit overnight.

This is suppose to help keep your stomach flat and clear your GI tract.

Honey Cinnamon H2O

1-2 tsp of honey i prefer raw
8 oz of H20
sprinkle of cinnamone

ACV/BSM/Lemon/Honey Cocktail

1tsp of Apple Cidar Vinegar
1tsp Blackstrap Molassas
1tsp of raw honey
8 oz of Water (HOT)
juice of a lemon

Carrot Juice

Carrot juice is one of the richest sources of vitamin A that can be used in the daily diet. It also ranks high as a source of the other vitamins, especially those of the B complex. Its mineral content is equally rich, and includes calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, chlorine, sulfur, and iron.

The vitamin A content of carrot juice helps to strengthen the eyes. In many cases where defective eyesight was noted--as during the war--the condition was overcome by fortifying the diet with fresh carrot juice.
I love to combine several different fruits and/or veggies in my juicer. Apple/grape is one of my favorites. Pineapple/carrot is nummy, too.
