There has been a new trend going around called infused water. What is it, you might ask? It’s simple, you add any assortment of fruit, veggie, or herb to your drinking water for added taste.
I work in a hospital and this is a new product we have been offering employees and guests and you wouldn’t believe how much water we go through! The hospital offers it as a way to get people to drink more water and it worked.
I use my fruit for 24 hours before I change it and since I was having a hard time finding a good diffuser I decided to buy a Snapple and use that bottle instead. It works great, all I do is add whatever fruit I want and just keep refilling it with water all day. Eventually I want to find a pitcher so that way my kids will start drinking more water too.
WARNING: be careful not to buy the cheap plastic water pitchers with diffusers, the acid from certain fruit will eat away at the plastic and leach into your water.
The picture shows my water for today, what you see inside it is a few slices of oranges and a few leaves of mint. The most popular combination at my work is honeydew and cucumbers, at our main hospital the favorite combination is peach, mango, and orange.
So if you need to incorporate more water into your day I would recommend trying this to see if you like it, it’s a great alternative to drinks with sweeteners in it.
If you already drink infused water, what is your favorite combination?
