|The Takeya Fruit Infusion Jug|
The Institute of Medicine recommends women drink 11 cups of water daily.
That's a lot. It's no wonder that most Americans are chronically dehydrated. Are you one of them?
I know. It's hard to drink so much water. I mean, who wants to spend the whole day in the bathroom? Nevertheless, I have a wonderful product that makes drinking water fun. It is the Takeya drink maker. This jug, which I purchased at Costco, will hold some delicious, cold, and satisfying water. But it also has a top that catches any yummy fixings you might like to use to flavor your water. (Variety really is the spice of life, right?)
I've been experimenting with my jug, and I thought I'd share my favorite, (and healthy) ideas for flavoring water:
- Fresh Mint. (Tear leaves to release flavor)
- A combination of oranges, lemons, limes, and cucumbers
- Red Zinger tea bags. (Or your favorite tea bags).
- Honeydew melon
- Honeydew melon and cucumbers
Get creative, and let me know if you come up with a great combination. I love trying new flavors!
Oh, and by the way, getting enough water in your diet can help you lose weight. Drink up, ladies.
