Spice Up Your Water-with Herbs

As a rule water is thought to be the best choice of staying hydrated and maintaining good health.

But sometimes plain water cab be ..well...boring.

Beverages with a Little zing can encourage us to drink more...and enjoy it.

Some great ways to make your water tempting is: Add citrus slices to your glass, orange or lemon slices, grapes, blueberries, cucumber and strawberries.

A sprig of Lemon-balm or Peppermint is pretty and flavorful.

A sprig of Lavender is beautiful and very aromatic...lovely at any function.

So, drink up and make it fun and tasty at the same time.

These ideas work great with children who sometimes balk at drinking plain water.

Energy drinks are often loaded with too many sugars for our best health and if one is watching the calorie intake.

Happy Summer~
