During our 9-hour car drive home from our holiday in the Outer Banks, we stopped about halfway to spend the night at a hotel. In hindsight, I think that our kiddos could have easily handled the entire trip in one day because we break it up into multiple stops. However, this was our first experience driving this far with a 4-year old and a 12-year old and I didn’t want to push my luck. We arrived at the hotel around dinner time, had a quick bite to eat and then got to bed early so we could get a good night sleep before we resumed our journey home. The hotel boasted quite a fabulous breakfast buffet and one of the parts that I enjoyed the most, was the fruit infused water. Not only was it pretty to look at, it was healthy and tasted delicious! The combination of the fruits imparted such a wonderful freshness and I found myself going back a few times to refill my glass. It’s one of those little things that has stayed with me and I looked a bit deeper into fruit combinations and came across a great chart that shows the different health benefits from pairing fruits and vegetables. I’m going for hydration, digestion and appetite control so I whipped up a pitcher filled with cucumber, lemon and lime. Below is the chart if you are interested in learning more about fruit infused water. Cheers!
