The benefits of water have been covered and we all now we need are minimum daily intake. So let me ask you...Are you Bored of drinking your 2 liters of water daily? Was your answer yes? I don't blame you. I drink A LOT of water, I mean A LOT of water. Living in Panama most of the time where the humidity lingers at 90-95% I constantly have to hydrate. So drinking plain water sometimes feels stale, literally.
So I don't. I use my reusable water bottle & I spice up my water by flavoring it every day with natural add ons. Here are my 7 top favorite water add ons! Use one flavor per week and never get bored. You may even find yourself drinking more water than usual.
Day 1: Water with two lemon wedges (I prefer lemon over lime but the choice is yours) Not only does this taste better but it also aides your digestive system in functionality.
Day 2: Water with a 1" peeled fresh, ginger piece. Spicy water is delicious. Ginger is great at releiving gas and acid reflux due to it's level of proteolytic enzyme.
Day3: Water with Mint (hierba buena) a refreshing drink any day of the week. Mint gives your water a cooling and soothing effect.
Day 4: Water with three slices of fresh pineapple. Ok, let's get real, this is almost like cheating right? Afterall it tastes like pineapple juice and guess what else? The bromelian helps boost our metabolism!
Day 5: Water with 4 slices of cucumber. Cucumbers are a great source for B vitamins providing a pick me up and the phytochemicals help combat bad breath. Cucumber water is a great choice if you are having a close face to face :)
Day 6: Water with 3 slice strawberries. Strawberries are loaded with vitamin C and when they are sliced the vitamins are released into the water (better to eat them whole though)
Day 7: Mix it up! Mint with ginger, Cucumber with lemon, Pineapple with strawberries, the world of water is yours
Now there are no more excuses for drinking your 2 liters of water every glorious day!
