Day Three SFY Mindful May Challenge – Water (Simple tip: Save your kitchen rinse water)

day3-water-blog

Hydrating is a goal for me during this 21 day mindfulness challenge since this is also my opportunity for spring cleaning and detoxing from the inside out.  But, I’m also uber-aware of conserving water now that we live in drought-stricken California.  I wanted to plant a small organic garden at our new house but, I struggled with needing to use precious water.  So we chose to only use homemade “gray water.”  I placed an expandable strainer, sized for my sink, over a large bowl and this rinse water has provided more than enough daily hydration for my garden!  Set this up in your own home and notice how much garden water you can collect just from rinsing veggies and fruits, rice, beans, lentils, etc!

Hydrate your body (my goal is 60 oz.+ each day), and conserve water in little and big ways!  How are you conserving water??  Leave a comment and share your ideas!!
