We all know we need to drink water every day, but let’s face it… water isn’t the most exciting thing in the world. Depending on your pipes and where you live, your water may not be the best tasting, so here are a few ways to make it taste better.
Filter it. You can filter with a home filtration system, a faucet unit, a pitcher, or a bottle. The choice is yours. You’ll be amazed at how much better your water tastes—just be certain to change the filter per the manufacturer’s recommendation.
Buy it. You can buy just about any type and flavor of water you wish. From mineral to sparkling and from apple to kiwi flavors, take your pick! Try several different kinds to see which taste great and quench your thirst.
Add to it. Add a squirt of lemon and / or lime, a little fruit juice, or just a splash of soda to flavor it. Use your imagination, and drinking your daily water will be something you look forward to.
Make your own. Here are a few recipes from http://www.sheismynutritionist.com/8-home-made-vitamins-water-recipes/ to make your own vitamin water. Enjoy!
