Your activity for Day 4 is: Dress it Up!

Whether you're a water lover looking for an occasional change of pace, or you really need more flavor in order to get enough to drink, these ideas will work for you!

Try adding a fun flavor combo to a pitcher of water:

  • Lemon and cucumber
  • Fresh ginger and lime
  • Plum and cinnamon
  • Pineapple and mint 
  • Raspberry and lime 
  • Cilantro, lime and jalapeno 
  • Tarragon leaves with blueberries and raspberries 
  • Cucumber, honeydew and mint 
  • Tomato slices with fresh horseradish 
  • Strawberry, kiwi and mint

You can also make your water prettier by freezing fruit juice or adding mint leaves or large berries to your ice cubes before freezing then "spa-ify" your glass of water with the pretty (and tasty) ice cubes.

And speaking of pretty :-) not only is water good for your health, it can help you LOOK better too!  Drinking enough water moisturizes your skin from the inside out.  Dry skin shows more sags and wrinkles while well hydrated skin naturally looks younger.  Water also helps the body metabolize stored fat making it easier to maintain a healthy weight and it helps reduce fluid retention!

So if you won't drink more for your health, do it for your vanity.  (Just kidding...do it for BOTH!)  

What are your favorite flavor combinations?

I love adding berries and citrus to my water pitcher! That jalapeno combination sounds interesting, is the water spicy??

Voss water bottles are excellent for this if you are on the go and want to do something! They have super wide openings on top that are great for shoving slices of lemon, cucumber, and other fruit and herbs into. I personally love cucumber and mint.

I just like it plain. It seems like too much work to add flavors. It always sounds good though.
