Water You Want To Drink

The Way It Should Be

We all know how important it is to stay hydrated but getting the recommended amount of water is tough. That all changes when you drink flavor-infused water. Yep that’s right, water can taste great. When you add a bit of fruit and/or herb flavor to regular water you can have water you want to drink. Flavor-infused water is refreshing and invigorating.

Mix It Up

To make flavor-infused water try adding slices of you favorite fruits and herbs to a pitcher of regular (filtered) water, refrigerate several hours and taste test. If you like it you’re in business. If not try another combination. You’ll figure it out. If you need a little help with ideas to get started here are a few I really like.

Tips

I recommend always using filtered or bottled water. Tap water just has too much gross in it! Trim away any damaged or bruised parts of fruit/herbs before adding to water. Fruit releases the most flavor when mashed. Refrigerate water several hours to overnight for maximum flavor. After adding fruits and herbs be sure to keep water cold. Use fruit/herb infused water within three days. Using clear containers shows off the water. Always use glass containers for citrus.

Caution

Do not leave citrus-infused water in a plastic dispenser overnight.Citrus exposure damages plastic.Remove citrus slices from plastic containers after 1 hour. If you drink enough water or if you don’t, you could always use more. Water is so crucial to our bodies every function and when we are properly hydrated the difference in how good we feel is noticeable almost immediately. So, why not get started today and see just how good you can feel. Your body will thank you for it. xoxo
