Hi, everyone! Easter came and went and we are all now back to our usual. My Easter was good, playing host to my in-laws and cute little niece, Frances but it could have been better had I not have my back pain. The injury I had (I had a protrusion of disc from my injury during a yoga session a few weeks ago) became worst at the worst time possible, when the house was full with guests and as if that was not enough, the anti-inflammatory medication I was given messed up my system so bad that I was so bloated and put on at least 1.5 kilos of mostly water.
So, when my guests retuned to Italy, I decided to do something about the water retention problem at hand and turned to the remedy I trust –
The Cranberry Dandelion Water Buster!
2 dandelion tea bags
2 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
1.5 liter of water
Leave the tea bags in a cup of hot water for 10 minutes.
Mix the rest of the ingredients together in a jug.
Then add the tea mixture (i usually put the bags in as well) in the jug.
Chill if you like.
Drink the mixture throughout the day for a week and the water will go slowly but surely and yes, you will ‘go’ a lot too!
