Having trouble drinking water?

July 26, 2016

 

Summer is one of the best times of the year. It is a time to spend with family and friends and enjoying active lifestyles outdoors. Unfortunately, a big part of summer-time is summer-time heat. Heat is a very dangerous threat facing active families and individuals during the hot summer months - especially down here in south Texas. Staying properly hydrated is the best way to avoid heat related illnesses. Soda and those artificial and refined beverages will not do the trick. These drinks are not only harmful to our bodies, but they will also dehydrate you rather than hydrate you and should be completely avoided.

 

Drinking water is the best way to keep your fluid levels where they should be, however, there are some of us who do not necessarily enjoy the taste of water. This should not stop you from enjoying all of waters' many health benefits. A simple vegan fix is infused water. Infused water is simply water that has been infused with the flavors of natural fruits and herbs such as mint. The flavors from the fruits and herbs add taste to pure water without any preservatives, added sugars, coloring or artificial flavors. Fruit infused water is the most common type of infused water. I have seen many people add strawberries and kiwi to their water for that extra guilt-free zest. Mint with stevia leaves is another interesting concoction to try. It adds the refreshing mint flavor with a hint of natural sweetness. 

 

Tips
  • Use any fruits or herbs you want.

  • If you don’t like cold drinks, let the water stand at room temperature for a while.

  • You can eat the fruit with the water or use it to make smoothies or any other recipe, but I recommend that you not try to re-use the fruit more than once for infusions. The natural flavors will not be as good.

REFRESHING INFUSED WATER

PREP TIME        5 mins

TOTAL TIME      5 mins

 

It's so important to stay hydrated. If you don't like regular water, try to make fruit infused water. It's so refreshing and it tastes amazing.

Serves: 4 cups (1 liter)

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 strawberries

  • 2 kiwis

  • 2 lemons

  • A handful of fresh mint

  • 4 cups water (1 liter)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Wash and slice the fruits.

  2. Place them in a glass jar and add the mint leaves and the water.

  3. Stir and refrigerate for at least 1 or 2 hours (can even do overnight). The longer it sits, the more flavorful the water will be.
