“Drink more water!!” We hear that all of the time, but for many people drinking more water is just not that easy.
As an aspiring Functional Nutrition Counselor, I often spend time trying to think of ways to help people incorporate more health in their day to day. With that in mind, I thought why not start with one of the most important nutrients, perhaps the most important nutrient.. water!
These are just a few tips that can make drinking water not only more palatable but enjoyable and easier to incorporate into your daily routine.
1. Add citrus fruits to your water. Adding freshly squeezed lemon juice to your water, not only brightens up the taste, but it can also aid the body in flushing toxins out of the body.
2. Throw in a cucumber or two. Cucumbers in and of themselves have a high water content which increases hydration, is loaded with antioxidants and may aid in keeping you regular!
3. Toss in a few of your favorite berries. Berries are antioxidant rich, are low in sugar and can make a boring glass of water a sweet treat!
Living life healthier doesn’t have to be hard, it just needs a plan!
To your health and wellness!
