The recommended daily fluid intake for women is 2.7L a day, and what better way to satisfy this than by drinking water – no calories, no damage to your teeth, keeps your skin hydrated … the benefits are endless! But it’s not always everyone’s favorite drink, so here are 5 ways to spice up your water and make it a drink to look forward to.
Detox With Lemon
Ingredients: Hot water + Lemon
This one is amazing all year round, particularly in the cold winter months. Start the day right with a cup of this to cleanse and warm up your digestive system! Squeeze in 1-2 lemons, and add some honey or grate a bit of ginger in it to spice it up.
Refresh and balance with a fruit infusion
Ingredients: Cranberries, Apple, Orange Zest, and Pomegranate Seeds
This combination is really suited to the fall and winter months when most of these fruits are in season. Slice an apple, overflow your water with cranberries and pomegranate seeds, grate some orange zest, and for an even cozier infusion, use hot water. Some health benefits from cranberries and pomegranate seeds include dietary fiber, and rich potassium and antioxidant levels.
De-stress with lemon zest
Ingredients: Lemon Zest, Cucumber, and Mint
Another great summer infusion, squeeze 1-2 lemons and scrape off some zest, slice a cucumber, tear off a few sprigs of mint, and enjoy a lighter, fresher, less sweet combination. Cucumbers are also great for de-stressing because of their high Vitamin B content, making this the ideal summer drink to unwind.
Protect your heart with kiwis
Ingredients: Orange, Kiwi, and Lime
For a more exotic infusion, slice an orange and a kiwi, and squeeze 1-2 limes into your water. Kiwis, in particular, are rich in nutrients and low in calories, an amazing source of Vitamin C, fiber, and potassium – making it a key food for better skin and better heart health!
The ultimate winter water
Ingredients: Ginger, Lemon, and Cinnamon Sticks
Couple these ingredients with hot water for a lovely, snug drink on a cold and rainy day. Some health benefits of cinnamon sticks include lowering blood sugar levels, reducing the risk of heart diseases, and helps fight infections, which is just what you need as flu season approaches.
