It is recommended that we are supposed to drink 8 glasses of water every day. I personally find plain water to be very boring and tasteless, and therefore do not drink anywhere close to the recommended amount, per day. *On a side note, and I am not really sure why, but if I put my water into a water bottle, I will drink it, but if its in a regular cup, I don't like the taste. Its weird right?!!
In an effort to try and improve my overall health, I would like reduce my intake of soda pop and increase my intake of H20. As an alternative to drinking plain water, a close friend suggested adding fruit to my water. What a great idea! I know during the summer I enjoy adding fresh lemon slices to my water, but never really thought much about adding oranges, pineapple, strawberries or raspberries.
The easiest way to do this is to purchase some frozen bags of pre-cut fruit and add a few pieces into your water, just like you would with ice cubes. I think this is great because it gives your water a little fruity kick, and its healthy! It's a win-win solution!
Have you ever tried this? What's your favorite fruit to put in water?
