but, most of the time, i don't really want water to drink. i'd much rather prefer coffee or wine. i've always viewed water as something i drink only when i'm thirsty from working out, a hot summer day or sickness. not something i drink as a luxury to enjoy.
so, as a proactive effort to chug a bit more water through-out the day, instead of grabbing for that afternoon coffee, i've been adding a little fruit to my water. herbs too! i prepare these every couple of days and that way, i'm more apt to grab a pre-made refreshing water, instead of making a cup of joe. there are countless combinations you can try with fruits, vegetables and fresh herbs. here are the three pictured above:
- strawberry & mint
- cucumber & basil
- lemon & blueberry
o, and p.s. because i use fresh fruits & veggies, these are filled with natural vitamins as well. bam! i bet even your kiddos would like it.
