We all know we have to watch our diet and watch those cracked lips during the colder seasons. That’s why you cannot go wrong with coupling FRUIT and WATER to nourish your body.
Infusing water with the essence of fruits, herbs, and other botanicals helps you drink plenty of liquids without the downside of excess calories, sugars and artificial flavourings. It’s beneficial hydration in every refreshing sip.
Fruit infused water is great to bring along with you and sip all day as a delicious hydrating treat.
Fruit infusions are all the rage. By adding pieces of fruit to your water bottle/glass, you can create a pleasant water drinking experience and we can show you how to do this.
ADD FLAVOUR: Add your own natural fruit juice for water flavouring. Adding a squeeze of lemon, orange or lime can add some flavour to your water and make it more appealing to drink.
WATER RICH FOODS: Water doesn’t just have to come from what we drink. You can stay hydrated by eating foods with a high water content, like cucumber, lettuce, melon and celery. These foods are healthy and will keep you fuller for longer. Did you know that watermelon has 92% water content?
UNLEASH THE HERBS: Infuse your water with herbs. You can use leaf herbs to enhance the flavour of water. Many people use mint to provide a subtle taste enhancement to their water consumption activity.
TIP: Try Apple and Cinnamon or Strawberry, Lemon and Basil or Cucumber, Melon and Mint or Orange and Kiwi or Blueberry and Lavender. (The possibilities are endless)
JUICE JAZZ: If you are a fruit juice lover and can't cut it out of your diet, try diluting it with water, this will count towards to your daily water intake and still be something sweet you will enjoy.
MORNING LEMON TEA: Drink hot water in the morning. Drinking hot water can also be done in the morning. This can aid digestion and with flavour enhancers can make the consumption of water more enjoyable. TIP: Squeeze lemon/lime juice into a glass of hot water in the morning to boost your skin radiance for the day.
BECOME A WATER CONNOISSEUR: There are a lot of different types of water on the market these days and to increase your enjoyment of water you can try these out too!
TIP: Try coconut water, almond water, and maple water during your next shopping trip and review them against your current water.
