How To... Get Delicious Water
Good ol' H2O is one of the best things you can give your body. In fact, it's recommended to drink six to eight eight-ounces glasses of water a day. If you're drinking that much, you certainly want to make sure that water tastes great, right? Here are some simple ways to ensure your water is delicious.
Step 1: Start with temperature
Keep it cold! You don't have to have filtered or bottled water to ensure you're drinking great-tasting water. In fact, most tap water is perfectly fine to drink, but it's much better cold! Keep a pitcher in the fridge to whet your whistle.
Step 2: Filter the water
Invest in a filtration system for your faucet such as the Filtrete water filtration system, which reduces sediment, parasitic cysts, chlorine taste and odor from the tap.
Step 3: Purify the water
Buy a water-purifying pitcher, such as a Brita water purifier, that will filter ordinary tap water into clean, purified drinking water.
Step 4: Give it hint of flavor
If plain ol' water is just too, well, plain, for you, try adding some zing with a spritz of lemon, lime or orange, a slice of cucumber or even a few cherries.
Step 5: Consider flavor packs
If you really want to sweeten your water, there are a myriad of powered flavor packs that can add a punch of taste to your water without adding a ton of calories.
Step 6: Add special ice cubes
Try adding some flavored ice cubes to your water. Freeze lemonade into ice cube trays and drop a few into your glass of water.
