3 Healthy Ways to Spruce up Your Water
Do you enjoy drinking water, or do you find it boring? Although water is a key player in your overall health and energy, it’s easy to find yourself reaching for juice, pop, or sports drinks to quench your thirst instead. Everyone has different needs for daily water intake depending on where one lives, activity level, health status and age. To rekindle your love for water, add some flavor using fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables.
Refresh and Revitalize Your Water
Here are three healthy and refreshing ways to revitalize your water this spring:
1. Cucumber Mint
This cleansing combination will make you feel fresh out of the spa. Drop 5 slices of washed cucumber into 6 cups of water, then crumple a handful of fresh mint leaves and mix them in. Stir, chill for about 30 minutes, add ice, and enjoy.
2. Lemon, Orange and Ginger
A detoxifying medley of citrus and ginger to keep your breath fresh and body hydrated. Grate 2 tablespoons of fresh, peeled ginger root into 6 cups of water, then add half an orange and a quarter lemon sliced into rings. Stir, chill for about 30 minutes, add ice, and enjoy.
3. Strawberry, Beet and Lime
This adventurous mix creates a purple-red hue that’s hard to pass up. Add two slices of peeled raw beet and half a cup of sliced ripe strawberries to 6 cups of water. Squeeze in the juice from two lime wedges then drop the wedges in. Stir, chill for about 30 minutes, add ice, and enjoy.
Remember to always drink an additional water (8 fl. oz.) after ingesting PGX®.
