AQUA! Summer feels right around the corner here in Boston and with the warmer temperatures it becomes more important than ever to ensure you are getting enough water. Fortunately, I have never been a big soda drinker, so water has always been my drink of choice (unless we’re talking about wine – then I’m a Riesling girl all the way or I never turn down a good glass on Prosecco). But not everyone relishes in a cold glass of water on a long summer day so below are simply a few options to making that h20 a little bit tastier and maybe more refreshing for you.
Something helpful to note: According to the powers that be, it is said that you should be drinking about half your body weight in ounces of water per day. So, if you’re a 150-pound person, then you should be getting roughly 75 ounces of water a day. So, drink up my friends!
TIP: Now, if you’re only an occasional drinker then what I find helpful is to slice up the below fruits / veggies, place them in a ziplock baggie and in the freezer. They stay fresh longer and also become fun versions of ice cubes.
|Grapefruit||Flushes out toxins|
|Lemons||Jumpstart your digestive system|
|Watermelon||Loaded with vitamins|
Slice, dice, mix ‘em up, sip and enjoy!
