Pink also provided Yahoo Lifestyle with two simple “muddled water” recipes from her book. As she writes in Slow Beauty: “The muddled waters are my favorite recipes in this book. They are colorful and packed with ingredients that are both super nutritious and flavorful. Muddled waters are a fun and healthy way to keep hydrated throughout the seasons. They’re good for you inside and out, and they are an excellent way to get your vitamins and minerals. You can think of them as a liquid, whole food vitamin.”

RECIPES:

1. Garlic-Lemon Drop Winter Water

Garlic boosts the immune system, has medicinal properties, is highly nutritious, contains antioxidants, and is also good for the heart. Lemon purifies, while pomelo is known to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by improving blood flow through the surface of the skin. Pomelo also increases collagen production and, in general, helps the skin look healthy.

Makes One 12-oz. Glass

Ingredients

o   4 pomelo wedges

o   ½ teaspoon garlic powder

o   Juice of ½ lemon

o   10 ounces of water, at room-temperature

o   2 ounces boiling water

Directions:  Place the pomelo wedges, garlic powder, and lemon juice in a tumbler and muddle [lightly mash] them together. Cover the ingredients with the room-temperature water and stir. Next, add the boiling water to top off the cup and warm it up. Allow the water to sit for a few minutes before serving so the ingredients infuse for a more vibrant taste experience. Drink and chew all the ingredients.

2. Turmeric Orange Fall Water

This water will help your entire body sing. Blood red oranges contain anthocyanin, which helps the body heal itself. Lemon purifies the skin and parsley is nutrient-dense. Turmeric is an antioxidant, and pepper helps your body digest the turmeric. Drink up and feel great!

Makes One 12-oz. Glass

Ingredients

o   2 to 3 wedges from a small blood orange (any other type of orange can be substituted if preferred)

o   ¼ teaspoon turmeric

o   Pinch of dried parsley

o   Juice of ½ lemon

o   12 ounces warm water

o   Freshly ground black pepper, for garnish

o   Parsley sprig, for garnish

Directions:  Place the orange wedges, turmeric, parsley, and lemon juice in a glass. Muddle the ingredients together. Cover the mixture with warm water. Enjoy!
