Drink water!

April 15, 2010

We all know we need to drink it. But are we really drinking enough? I know I don’t. If you divide your weight in half (using pounds), that is precisely how many ounces of water your body needs in order to regulate its temperature, provide the means for nutrients to travel to your organs and to rid your body of the toxins we humans, take in every day. Twenty percent of your water will need to come from the food you eat and the rest via beverage.

I love water, but sometimes I just can’t swallow the idea of drinking tons of flavorless water. It really depends on my mood. Solution…add tasty fruits, herbs or even veggies! I like to add some sort of citrus fruit, mint leaves and slices of cucumber. Today I didn’t have any cucumber so I added a second citrus just for fun.  Get creative!

Today, I chopped up some lime, grape fruit and fresh mint leaves! I like to fill up a pitcher each day (and hopefully refill it through out the day) so that the tasty water is ready for me or any guests who happen to stop by. Enjoy!
