My oldest son was so encouraged about learning how to slice lemons that he came up with his first recipe. I’m so proud. It’s a recipe for flavored water with fresh fruit and vegetables (like our version of the spa water you find at hotels). My kids love flavored water. And to my surprise, not all kids do. My boys offered their flavored water to a couple of friends who turned their noses up at having vegetables in their water. My boys shrugged it off and had third helpings.
So here’s Mr. Lego Man’s flavored water recipe. He even wrote it out – I’m just transcribing it for him.
Where to Get Kitchen Pantry Essentials
I get my other kitchen pantry supplies like sea salt, black pepper, spices, coconut oil, and other essentials either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Bob’s Red Mill baking soda, for instance, is about $3 at my local health food store and $6 on Amazon. But it’s only $2.03 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.
Sign up for a Thrive Market membership and get 2 months free and 10% off your first order.
