    Not exactly a spa water, but a nice treat nonetheless! A splash of heart-healthy red wine turns this fruity water infusion into an antioxidant-rich evening cocktail.

    6 cups (1.5 L) mineral or sparkling water 
    2 cups (500 ml) dry red wine 
    1 lemon, sliced
    1 lime, sliced
    1 blood orange, sliced
    1/2 cup (125 ml) hulled and sliced strawberries

    1. Pour water and red wine into large pitcher or bowl. Stir to combine. 2. Add lemon, lime, orange and strawberries. 3. Chill in refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours.

    For a nonalcoholic version, simply replace red wine with an additional 2 cups (500 ml) water.

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
