Drink Me!

Drinking more water is one of the simplest ways to improve your health, yet most of us are not drinking nearly enough! The average woman needs about 2.2 liters a day, and a man 2.5 liters (plus more if you are exercising, drinking alcohol, in a warm climate, or sweating profusely). 

Enter Fruit Water a.k.a. Detox Water.

Simply jazz up your water glass by adding fresh fruit and herbs to make it more tantalizing. I mean come on, don’t these glasses just scream “Drink Me!”?!

You can create any combo you like, but here are some of my favorites:

Cucumber + Mint

Rosemary + Lemon

Orange + Rosemary

Cucumber + Lemon + Orange

You can try adding berries, but I would macerate them a little bit, as they don’t impart too much flavor on their own. Do you have a favorite fruit water flavor? Share it in the comments below! 

Also, in light of the fact that I know you’re all busy but still want to eat healthier, I’m going to be breaking it all down for you and sharing my #HealthyHack tips regularly. 

#Healthy Hack : Drink More Water

  • Jazz up water with fresh fruit, so you’re more excited to drink it. Plus you get to eat the fruit at the end. Yay. 
  • Purchase a 1 liter glass (not plastic!) water bottle that you can carry with you or keep at your desk. Refill 2-3 times/ day. (If you purchase a smaller bottle, like this 19 oz glass bottle, just know how many  times you need to fill it up a day. Since 1 liter is appx 34 oz, that means you would need to refill it about 5 times a day).
