How to Make Your Water Taste Better With These 4 Foods

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.

1. Lemons

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?

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). (

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.
