Consider Flavoring Your Water

Consider Flavoring Your Water

If you don't drink water often because it doesn't have flavor, consider adding fruit or vegetables to it. Fruits and vegetables such as lemons, limes, oranges cucumbers, strawberries or watermelon are easy additions to make and may give your water the flavor it needs to make it satisfying and tasty.

If you add fruits and vegetables to your water you are getting the daily servings of these foods that you need each day. So that is a nice little bonus that you can feel good about.

Think about Green Tea

Choosing Green Tea not only gives you many options with flavors or iced versus hot, it also helps with the risk of cancer, high blood pressure, cavities, and promotes kidney health. It is also calorie free unlike soda so you don't have to feel guilty about drinking it.

Some of my favorites flavors are peach and raspberry. Have some fun discovering which flavor you like best.

Add Seltzer if you miss the Bubbles and Fizz of Soda

If you are missing the bubbles or carbonation of soda, you can try seltzer water and add whatever flavoring or fruit you wish. You will still get the bubbles without all the extra sugar and calories.

Bubbles also make drinking water more enjoyable.

If you want something besides flavored water but still want something healthy, consider fruit and vegetable juice. These have many vitamins that your body needs and they taste pretty good as well.

Drinking orange juice can also help you fight off illnesses because of the Vitamin C so you won't have to use up as many of your sick days.

Drink Milk

Drink Milk

If you want to get a serving of dairy into your day, consider drinking milk. If you can't drink regular milk, consider soy or almond milk. There are many varieties to choose from so you can find the taste that is right for you.

Drinking milk also gives you the vitamin D and Calcium you need.

Drinking small amounts of coffee each day will give you the caffeine boost you are missing and there are many ways to take your coffee so you won't run out of options.

Drinking Coffee not only helps you wake up in the morning but it can lower your risk of heart disease and diabetes Type II. Just don't over indulgence.

Consider Drink Mixes for your Water

You may be thinking that these contain artificial sugars that are bad for you, but if you choose ones made from natural sugars, there are a healthy option. These will give you the sugar you may be missing from your soda and give you many flavors to choose from.

Nicole
I like these because many of them come in packets that make them easy to pour into your water when you are on the go.
