We all know the 8-glasses-of-water-a-day drill, but how boring can water be though, seriously. While there are some days where 8 glasses of water is enough, there are other times where we should be aiming for 3 litres. It is important to be consistently drinking water, especially when we know that our bodies (us!) are around 70% water! I have created a delicious infused water blend to keep me reaching for water over sweeter drinks throughout the day:
- Mint leaves
- Half a Lime
- Half a Lemon
- 2 Litres of water
Not only is it delicious, but it helps flush nasty toxins from the body and assists to alkaline the system.
Mix up a jug of it and keep it in the fridge or get a glass bottle (or BPA free plastic bottle) and keep on your desk to drink throughout the work day.
Soda water also goes great with this mix. Think Vodka, Lime and Soda...sans Vodka and more flavour, super refreshing.
Infused water is a great alternative over cordial for the kids! Just chop up their favourite fruits and add them to the jug.
I would love to hear your favourite infused water blends in the comment section below.
