Season two salmon fillets with salt (i was preparing a meal for two, you can adjust the ingredients depending on how many persons you are serving). Line your baking dish with a large piece of foil and place them. Squeeze half a lemon to drizzle juice over the fillets and cut the other half in rondelles to place on top as well. Wrap the edges of the foil to keep the salmon moist! Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until flaky and tender.

  • one big avocado
  • one small onion finely chopped
  • juice of half a lime

Water is very essential to your good health, it makes up about 60% of your body weight. Every day you lose water through your breath, perspiration, urine and bowel movements, but since every system in your body depends on water to function properly, you must replenish its water supply. Studies determined that your water needs depend on many factors, including your health, how active you are and where you live but roughly we can say an adequate intake for men is 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total beverages a day and for women 2.2 liters (about 9 cups).

It’s a huge amount of water if you think about it and you are not a water lover! That’s why here is 3 homemade recipes for naturally flavored water with added health benefits, to encourage you meet your daily needs, and stay hydrated especially it’s getting really hot outside!
