Refreshing Summertime Drink

With the summer heat and humidity in full force, who doesn’t need a tasty refreshing drink!  It is great for adults and kids and a great switch from the regular ol’ water. 

1 bottle of Pellegrino water
1 to 1 1/2 cups of raspberries or any other fruit you'd like to use
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 cup of ice

Blend all together and there you go!  You could even add a little honey or xylitol (for those on Candida Clear) to sweeten it up.  I personally didn’t think it needed it, but it is always an option.  I also didn’t use ice in mine (I personally don’t like ice in my drinks) and it works just as well- more of a flavored water versus an icy drink.  


Homemade Fruit Fly Trap

Summer time is for fresh fruit, and fresh fruit means the occasional fruit fly.  I found this recipe for a homemade fruit fly trap and it WORKED.  I trap almost all of my pesky fruit flies at home with this simple trick. 

All you have to do is put a little dish soap in a bowl and fill with water. Make sure you have plenty of bubbles since this is what traps them. Next add a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in the water to help lure them to the bowl.  That's it!

Put a fresh bowl out each morning and night.
