    Wow, this is just what the doctor ordered!

    I’ve been dieting a lot lately, and I try to drink a lot of water. My well water is absolutely delicious, but even so, sometimes I feel that the water just sits on the top of my stomach for a long time before it gets absorbed. One time I thought that I needed electrolytes so I added a little fruit juice. Little did I realize that I was about to come across these recipes, and they’re exactly what I need.

    I never realized how all these herbs and fruits can work together. For example, I never knew about hibiscus being so good for high blood pressure and inflammation, two of my current challenges. So thank you, so much, for these awesome recipes! I look forward to trying all of them!

    :)
