When I was at my sister’s place, she put out this beautiful pitcher of orange water on the table for meals. The water tasted delicious…with just a fruity, sweet flavour that was so refreshing. I loved it.
Apparently, she meant to use lemons…but she had run out, so she used orange slices. A brilliant idea.
If you’re bored of plain ole water, fruit flavoured waters are just the best thing ever. It’s still water…but it’s got a splash of flavour that keeps you drinking! These are the waters that people serve at those fancy spas.
I can’t wait to try more flavours…
Some kinds I want to try:
- Fresh basil with strawberries
- Peppermint and cucumber
- Peach slices
- Pineapple and Parsley
- Rosemary sprigs and lemon
Getting creative with your water may help you drink more during the day and makes for a beautiful, inviting beverage. These combinations taste better if you let them sit in the pitcher of water overnight. You can even just plop in your water pitcher a couple fruit tea bags!
If you’re super lazy, you can just add an ounce of pure fruit juice to your water. It’s hardly any extra calories and gives your water a nice essence.
Do what you go to do to keep you drinking!
(love my stainless-steel water bottle too!)
I love, love, love my water…but I have to admit…since I’ve started this trip I’ve had a hard time remembering to drink lots of water. At home, it’s not really an issue…but traveling it sure seems to be. I love water…so I’m not sure what my problem is. I’m keeping water with me all day long…I just don’t drink it. Dreadful. Starting right now, I’m going to change my ways.
And thank you all for your sweet comments on my last post…wow, I certainly understand those of you with family far away. Thank goodness for modern technology like Skype, Facebook, and emails that keep us close!
Do you have a hard time drinking water when you travel? Have you tried flavoured water?
