Make Your Water Special!

Good morning everyone! I just wanted to share with you a little treat I do with my water to make it "special". If you are having a hard time drinking all your water every day, you may want to try this.

I take plain water and I add "stuff" to it to give it a hint of flavor. Below are a few example combinations but the possibilities are endless.

I use a nice plastic pitcher I bought from Target and fill it with ice and whatever I am putting in it that day and then fill with water. I let it sit for about 1/2 hour and then stir it up real good with a wooden spoon. I leave this pitcher sitting on my kitchen island all day long. It looks so pretty and refreshing and makes me drink even more. Since it's sitting out, it's a constant reminder to drink. And the ice keeps it cold all day.

I do NOT add any sweetener. So it's not sweet but has a hint of flavor and for some reason is just more refreshing than plain water.

Orange, Lemon & Lime:


Cucumber:


Strawberry & Lemon (my favorite):


A few other flavors you could try:
Pineapple
Cucumber and Mint leaves
Strawberry and Oranges
Grapes and Apples

And Roni over at "Green Lite Bites" makes a Cucumber Tea I really want to try. She has a video too that shows how she does it. That is pretty much how I do my waters but I don't use tea.

Try it and see if you like it!

Here's to a healthier you,
Shelly

    Coming over from Jessica's. That water looks so refreshing. Sometimes I add lemon juice to mine. It's suppose to help balance PH levels. But to add it like you did makes me want to drink it now. I think the strawberry with lemon looks divine! I am going to get me a cute pitcher and copy your idea. Thanks for sharing! Going to check out more of your blog!

    That is a great idea. I've heard of adding stuff to water but have only done boring old lemon. The strawberry and lemon looks so yummy! I might have to copy your idea. Thanks for sharing!

    I can't wait to try these. I am trying to drink more water and sometimes it is just not fun trying to drink 8 glasses of plain ol' water!
