Secrets to Transforming Water into Something You'll Actually Want to Drink
I'm notoriously bad at drinking water. It's because I don't like it.
You might say, "We're made of water-- how can you not like water?" Or "Water has no taste, what's not to like?"
I've gotten many such questions, to which I always respond, "It's boring! Water has no flavor and it bores me!"
Maybe I'm childish, maybe you don't have the same struggles I have, but regardless, you'll thank me for these secrets to transforming water into something you'll actually want to drink.
Secret 1: Look good, feel good (taste good!)
I drink water out of a glass tumbler because, pretty. (I have this one: cute, inexpensive, colorful, BPA-free) I find that presentation is key in upping appeal.
Secret 2: Infuse
I've tried several different infusions in my water. Some ingredients that work well: Lime, lemon, peach, strawberry, cucumber, apple. Herbs are also a great addition- I use primarily mint, basil, rosemary, and lavender.
The fun comes from combining different fruits/veggies and herbs! My FAVORITE combos are:
Secret 3: Change it Up
Get creative with your infusions! Experiment, change it up. Add tea bags and turn it into an infused sun tea. Mix in a little POM or another pure, 100% not from concentrate juice for a tart flavor. Keep it creative and have fun. (This will keep the boring at bay)
Bonus Tip: Sub-In Alternates
If you still need some variety (I often do), try alternate beverages. I'm the queen of carbonated water. La Croix (pamplemousse, coconut, cran-raspberry) and San Pellegrino (mineral water) are my stand-by's. Anything to keep the healthy habits a tantalizing treat!
Cheers to a more refreshed and hydrated you!
