Flavored water has been a new craze of mine. I drink more water throughout the day, because it tastes good! This bottle has little markers and encouraging messages for each hour to help you stay on track to reaching your goal of water-intake each day. It is also 100% BPA free, so you’ll still be safe if you leave it in your car on a hot summer day. The large top is extra helpful for reaching in and washing out any residue left by the fruit. And another big bonus: it comes with a recipe for different fruit infusions, so you never get bored of what you’re sipping! A couple of my favorite flavors are strawberry basil and citrus mint.
You do not ingest the same fiber, nutrients, and vitamins as you would when blending fruits/veggies and drinking them, so it’s not as good as eating the fruit outright. However, the main benefit here is that you are more hydrated because you drink more water when it’s flavored. An extremely important and over-looked benefit by many of us today! (And you can always eat the fruit later, mixed with yogurt or over oatmeal.) Many many small irritations we feel throughout the day with our body, like headaches, stomachaches, fatigue, digestion issues, sluggish thinking, dry skin, can often be fixed by staying hydrated. But guess what? So many of us reach for coffee or caffeinated soda instead to get us through the day! These diuretics are just making us dehydrated and turning these irritants into problems. Do yourself a favor and find a way to reach for water instead of a third coffee – flavored water works like a charm!
