You probably know already that water's pretty good for you. It helps you stay energized, keeps you regular, and can improve your skin.
But here's the thing: Water can also be...well, boring.
Consider that problem solved: Before you swap a tall glass for a bottle of something sugary (or even a stuffed-with-chemicals), try these quick fixes to add taste--and extra nutrients--to your bottle today.
Spice Up Your Water!
Grab a bottle of sparkling water for the bubbly feeling of a soft drink without the calories. If it's too bland, add a twist of lime or a splash of sugar-free fruit juice, Top it with a lemon or orange rind. Try different combinations to keep things interesting.
Have Tea Time
Choose any of the varieties of teas and herbal drinks, not only to stay hydrated, but also to reap piles of benefit for your body. Black tea & green tea are packed full of good for you ingredients. We have a delicious selection of teas at Korcare Spa - Be sure to stop by and pick up a few of your favorite flavors!
Boil Some Broth
Warm up in winter with a vegetable or bone broth. Broth is a great hydrator, and you're getting all those nutrients--vitamins from the vegetables, and extra protein from the chicken, if you add it.
You don't have to brew herbs to enjoy their flavor. Add powdered or freshly sliced ginger, mint leaves, or even lemongrass to amp up your H2O. You can also go floral - lavender and rose hips are loaded with vitamin C.
Get the maximum benefits with this delicious & nutritious drink recipe!
2 liters water (about 8½ c)
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 med cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
1 med lemon, thinly sliced
12 sm spearmint leaves
Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and let flavors blend overnight. Drink the entire pitcher by the end of each day.
