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:
Strawberry & Lemon (my favorite):
A few other flavors you could try:
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,
