Healthy Ways to Flavor Water

Coffee and soda may be only a couple hundred calories per drink, but when you have one every day they can easily ruin a diet. The solution? Try adding a little flavor to your water. Adding fruits, veggies and herbs to water are healthy ways to jazz up plain water without adding extra calories.

Herbs: When you want something cool and refreshing try mint or lemongrass. For a little zing, add ginger.

Fruits: Try strawberries, raspberries, lemons, limes, oranges or blueberries.

Veggies: Slice up some cucumbers for a crisp and refreshing beverage.

Ice: Add flavor by freezing fruit juice in ice cube trays. They add a hint of flavor as they melt in your water.

    I like a combination of citrus fruits, making sure I use at least 1 grapefruit (helps rev the metabolism). I also like a variety of apples cut up with 1 cinnamon stick (which also helps your metabolism). YUMMY

    I like my water naked and very cold, sometimes with lemon.
