Living healthily goes beyond simply paying attention to the food you eat, and should also extend to the water you drink. Here’s how you could make drinking water taste better:
Orange: You could use frozen orange slices as ice cubes by adding them to your drinking water. Fresh and citrusy, this water can be an everyday favourite. It has the sweetness of orange juice but without the added sugar.
Berries: Mash up fresh blueberries or strawberries at the bottom of the glass and then add drinking water to it. You could even use frozen blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries to add flavour and keep your water cold. They also add colour to water. Berry-flavoured water also helps to reduce your cravings for sweet treats.
Mint leaves: Jazz up your drinking water by adding fresh mint leaves and letting them be steeped in before drinking. Mint leaves help you digest more effectively, improving the flow of bile from the liver, to the gallbladder, to the small intestine, where it breaks down dietary fats. Mint also helps relax cramped up stomach muscles.
