Are you one of those people (like my husband) who just doesn’t like the “taste” of water? I never understood this, because it literally doesn’t have a taste…(eye roll).
BUT, apparently it is a thing. So, I wanted to debunk that excuse for you not getting your daily water intake in (about 50% of your body weight in water drank each day) by sharings some ways I make water drinking “taste” better.
Things to add to your water to make it taste better.
This is the most obvious I’m sure. Go to a restaurant and you’re asked if you’d like a lemon with your water. Maybe YOU are the one to ask for a lemon. Have you actually put a lemon in your water?
Some fun facts about lemons:
There are some floating suggestions that lemon water may help with cleansing the body. Lemons are high in Vitamin C as well as antioxidants. The citric acid in lemons as also been associated with preventing kidney stones (healthline.com).
Everyone’s heard of putting lemons in your water, but have you ever tried a cucumber? Crazy I know. I think the flavor is thirst quenching.
Some fun facts about cucumbers:
When eaten, they are good source of vitamins B1, B2 and B3, vitamin C, folic acid, ascorbic acid, caffeic acid, calcium, iron, manganese, zinc, and dietary fiber. (homeremediesforyou.com)
Add fresh strawberries as a great natural flavor to an ordinary glass of water. If you love strawberries, you may love them in your water.
Some fun facts about strawberries:
Strawberries are full of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, magneseum and potassium. When eaten, they increase HDL (good) cholesterol, lower your blood pressure, and guard against cancer (webmd.com).
It’s not quite the same as sugary orange juice, but it does add a little fruity fun to your water bottle without the extra calories!
Fun facts about oranges:
Oranges are said to improve vision, enhance sexual performance, prevent cancerous cell growth, and regulating blood pressure (to name a few). (naturalfoodseries.com).
These are just a few fun additions I use in my own water. I’m sure there are other fruits and veggies that would be great as well.
I even add more than one for a combination of flavors to arouse my taste-buds.
What fun things do you add to your water? Tried it? What do you think?
Don’t be a shy, share this with another guy.
