When should I drink infused water?
3. Pineapple: A treasure trove of thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B-6, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium, manganese and magnesium, pineapple is easily one of the healthiest fruits you can add to your diet.
4. Cucumber: The vegetable is all water and nutrients. Did you know that about 95 percent of cucumber is just water?! Speaking of calories, cucumber contains only 16 calories per hundred grams as per USDA.
* This recipe makes one serving but you can make a large batch using 6 cups of water and a 2-inch piece of ginger (grated this will be about 2-3 tablespoons). Simply boil the water in a tea pot and once it’s boiling, remove it from the heat and add the ginger and let it steep for 6-10 minutes. The longer it steeps the stronger the flavor. If you like the tea hot, you can strain it right into a tea cup and squeeze in lemon and garnish with mint. For cool tea, once it’s cooled, strain it into a pitcher, add lemon and mint (the more the merrier!).
I feel like trying to drink more water should be so much easier, I mean, eight glasses a day seems like so much. eight glasses of wine however. I realised that all of a sudden I was drinking way too much coffee, so have made a concerted effort to cut back on the caffeine and get more water into my life, and this flavoured water has definitely helped!
Seasonal fruits, veggies and herbs are incredibly rich in a number of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. You can have them separately or combine the goodness of some in one drink.
We suggest drinking this throughout the day. It’s refreshing, restorative and great for your bloat-free belly! 🙂
