Kidney Firendly Infused Water Recipes
First, throw a few leaves of basil and a sliced strawberry (or two) into a water infusor and let sit. After several hours, the drink should be good to go. Naturally, the longer it sits, the more flavor you’ll get!
Pro Tip: With this in mind, be sure to slap your basil gently. Immediatly after the flavor and scent will be released.
First, cut your orange in slices. Then add 1 or 2 to your water along with some blueberries. Despite being high-potassium, the tiny amount in an orange slice is usually okay.
Fact From Jen: For the most part, the vitamin C in this drink may help the body absorb iron.
Finally, try this easy and refreshing drink. Drop in a few cucumber slices and two twisted stalks of lemon grass. Then, allow it to sit and drink up!
Shopping Tip: If you are unfamiliar with lemongrass, be sure to purchase the prepared version and not the full plant. In other words, packaged lemongrass will be much easier to work with.
