Is Your Water Boring?

Is Your Water Boring?
Water is SOO important for our health.  When we don't drink enough our entire body dries out.  You see it in your skin, you may suffer from constipation, your digestion slows, your blood pressure rises, your body becomes more acidic and so many other symptoms occur. 

Today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite "tasty, flavored water" recipes with you.  You can drink them immediately but I find that if you let them infuse for at least an hour they taste really delicious and if you let them sit for 4 hours yummmmm. I recommend that you use fresh organic fruits and herbs if possible.  You can also use frozen fruit if you don't have fresh and it will taste almost as good
 

Peach, Lemon, Ginger water

1/3 of a nice size peach sliced
1 small lemon sliced
2 slices ginger

One of my favorites - it brings the summer right into your water. 


 

Strawberry, Lemon, Basil water

1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1 small lemon sliced
1/4 cup basil leaves

Pineapple, Orange, Ginger Water

1/2 cup chunked pineapple
1/2 orange
2 slices of ginger (if you grate it you will have little pieces of ginger floating, if you like that them grate it)



Grapefruit and Rosemary
1/2 grapefruit
a few sprigs of rosemary


Watermelon and Mint water


1 cup watermelon
1/4 cup mint



Happy Drinking, these may make drinking 3 liters a day easier for many of you. A few other recipes you may want to try that I didn't make today that are delicious:
  • cinnamon water - just put a cinnamon stick in the water
  • ginger/cinnamon - a cinnamon stick and a few slices of ginger
  • cucumber/lime/mint  1/2 cucumber, 1 lime and 1/4 cup mint leaves
I'd love to hear other combinations you've tried and loved.  Please post them below.
