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).
