Juicing Up Water

We all know how important it is to get plenty of water. Our bodies are made of water, and we need a good supply to promote normal metabolism, healthy hydrated skin and smooth operations within all of the body's systems.

Let's face it, though. Water can get boring. Providing it's normal, water is odorless, colorless, tasteless and although a cold bottle of water can be a wonderful satisfying thirst-quencher, water itself can be somewhat lack-luster.

Since we know how good it is for us, though...we are not deterred! We will share interesting and creative ways to make our water exciting again, and we will keep on chugging that water down!

Green Tea: Green tea is good for your health. It has antioxidants and can provide a great boost to your metabolism. Brew up a pot of tea with a couple of tea bags and then pop it in the fridge for instant ice tea. If you can drink it as is, all the better. If you need to, add a little drizzle of honey to "sweeten the pot".

Lemon: Lemon is great. It adds a kick to your water and it's a diuretic that cleanses your insides and helps alleviate water retention when you're feeling a little bloated from eating too much salt.

Seltzer: When regular, still water just doesn't seem to have that depth that people always claim about "still waters", kick it up a notch and go for the bubbly! Fizzy explosive water tickles your tongue and massages your throat. It even tastes different. Add a splash of orange juice and you have an instant Orangina!

Cranberry Juice: Just an ounce or so will do nicely to brighten your water with a pretty pink color and tempt your taste buds with a little extra flavor and "zing". Like Lemon, Cranberry also works as a diuretic and cleanser that will help keep you healthy and clean from the inside out.
