“The human body is 90% water so we’re basically just cucumbers with anxiety.”
Despite the fact that there are umpteen number of health drinks and beverages in the market, nothing trumps water.
Water is extremely vital for us — every cell, tissue and organ in our body needs water to function. In reality, even though we know how beneficial water is for us, we don’t drink it often, simply because it tastes so bland.
Why not add things which not only make your water tasty, but also healthier! So, here are five ways to oomph up your water.
CUBE IT UP
Freeze fresh juice in your ice tray, add sliced fruit in your water and freeze them, or use frozen berries pretending they are cubes: then add it to your water. Your water will not only look pretty but will taste better too.
SASS UP YOUR WATER
Tired of drinking litres of bland water as a part of your new diet regime? Well then, why don’t you try ‘Sassy Water’. It is a combination of fresh ginger, cucumber, lemon, and spearmint. And, is the best-selling recipe for a flat belly diet.
MAKE IT HERBY
Cinnamon, lavender, peppermint, basil and other herbs can be added to your water to jazz it up a little. They add flavour to your water and, you can even tap into your creative side and try different combinations of herbs.
CUCUMBER SLICES AND LEMONGRASS
Cucumbers are high in fibre and when added to your water, can aid digestion and healthy bowel movement. Lemongrass is a key ingredient in Thai cuisine and tastes very good. This is a combination of something healthy and something tasty in just a glass. Also, it is super refreshing!
How about something fizzy
Not in the mood for drinking regular water? Just grab a bottle of sparkling water and maybe jazz it up a little by adding lemon, peppermint, sugar, or just about any flavour you prefer. Ta-da! Now this is a ‘bubbly’ way to drink water, ain’t it?
