3 Ways to Make Water Yummy

If I have heard it once, I have heard it a hundred times from my clients that they do not like the taste of water. They say it is boring and yucky which I know I have thought before and this keeps us from drinking enough of the "wet stuff" to keep our bodies happy.

One of the easiest ways to make water more palatable is to make sure your water is filtered. Whether you use a filter on the faucet, a pitcher in the fridge or a filtering system in your fridge or freezer's door, this will eliminate a lot of the crud that gives water a bad taste.

Secondly, during the spring and summer I treat my water like I'm enjoying it at the spa. I borrowed this trick from a spa I went to in Duck, North Carolina and it's my go-to solution when I need to make my water more interesting. I slice up about half of an average sized cucumber and put the slices into a pitcher of water, and depending on how quickly I drink the water, I can get another pitcher's worth of water out of the cucumber slices. This trick is not only yummy but it's inexpensive. I just love cucumber-infused water! It is so refreshing, clean tasting and guzzle-able.

My third suggestion was also borrowed from another spa in West Palm Beach. It is beginning to sound like all I do is go to the spa, it is not, but they are my inspiration for these ideas. Back to Palm Beach, the land of citrus; this particular spa thinly sliced oranges and had the lovely little slices working their magic in a pretty glass pitcher which would really wow your guests at your gatherings this summer.

So there you have it, my three tricks for really enjoying getting hydrated.
