5 Easy Ways to Add Flavor To Your Water

Hydration is a HUGE Deal!

We all know that staying hydrated is so important and I am sure most of us would agree that we need to drink more water!

In my emails today, I received an update from the Canada Food Guide and it has some great tips for drinking more water. Here is an excerpt from it with 5 ways to add flavour to your water:

From The Canada Food Guide:

5 ways to add flavour to your water

You can add fruits and herbs to your hot or cold water for flavour. Here are some ideas to try:

  1. blackberries + mint
  2. raspberries + cucumber
  3. strawberries + fresh basil
  4. chopped apples + a cinnamon stick
  5. pear slices + a drop of vanilla extract

To release the most flavour:

  • crush the berries
  • chop or tear herbs
  • cut fruit into cubes

If you like some fizz in your drink, try carbonated water.

It is so easy to make nutrient rich flavored water. You can virtually throw in any fruits or berries that you like, optional herbs, add some fresh filtered or distilled water and a little sweetener if you like. I use honey but stevia would be another alternative. The longer it sits the better it gets! I find the kids loveΒ these drinks and they are so pretty too!They are called “Aids” because they aid in both add hydration and providing nutrition for the body.
