How To Drink More Water

How To Drink More Water

Drinking water can be sort of daunting (for some people) but it's so good for you. I mean there's the whole clear skin and shiny hair thing. But drinking half your weight in ounces (EX: if you're 140 lbs drinking 70 oz per day) will give you a flat belly and helps relieve pain and relieves headaches.

But I get it. It's plain. And most people like flavor. Me as well. While I've become discipline over the years to drink more water, adding some fruit to it definitely makes me drink more. Here are my favorite infused water recipes for the summer.

Raspberry and mint: The tarteness from the raspberry balances out the coolness of the mint. I love drinking this at the end of a work day as the mint relaxes me.

Lemon and lime: the easiest way to alkaline your water is to add some good ole fashioned citrus to it. It's cleansing, refreshing and helps with digestion.

Lime and blueberry: This is the perfect balance of alkaline water with a berry twist to it. If lemon isn't your jam, lime is a solid alternative and compliments blueberry perfectly. I like this in the am if I'm not in the mood to do hot water with lemon but still want the alkaline (and antioxidants due to the blueberries) benefits.

Strawberry, blueberry & lemon: all of my faves in one glass. Just delicious. If you want to get fancy, you can muddle the fruits beforehand you really pack the water with flavor. Always a win in my book. Always.
