I drink a lot of water living in Nicaragua and I am always looking for ways to make it more interesting.

I have put lemon slices or mint in my water, which is very refreshing. Lately I have been slicing up cucumbers and adding them to ice cold water and it is really enjoyable.

Cucumbers have vitamin k in them, which helps your bones retain calcium. They are also full of antioxidants.

Slice fresh cucumbers
Add to cold water
Chill for 1 hour and drink
