Water with a twist

Yes, I will talk about water again! Most of us could need to drink some more =)
I wrote a post on water a few months back, and now I think it`s time to re-visit the subject with a little twist. First, a few more facts that I found reading about water in the book Seven Pillars of Health;

Did You Know…?
·         Your body is about 50–70 percent water.
·         Your muscles are about 75 percent water.
·         Your brain cells are about 85 percent water.
·         Your blood is approximately 82 percent water.
·         Even your bones are approximately 25 percent water.
I have met only a handful of people that say they Love water. They love drinking it - the taste and everything about it. Most of us from time to time enjoy drinking water, but these people are avid water drinkers. They go out of their way to drink it every single day. One sweet friend in particular is convinced she drinks too much water! What a refreshing statement. I want to be on that side - drinking too much water, as oppose to too little.

Drinking plain water gets boring after a while for me. I need a little new-ness to it. A little piece of lime, lemon or cucumber. Maybe a few leaves of mint, parsley, basil... how about some fresh berries. Fruits like grapefruit, apples, pears are phenomenal when it comes to adding flavor. If you really want to branch out - how about adding a dash of cinnamon or ginger to your water (make sure to shake it up so it can blend in before you drink it). Test it out, see if you can up your water intake by adding a little flavor.

Some of us are used to drinking juice, coffee, tea and other kinds of beverages without even realizing that it takes the place of water. The sugar and caffeine robs our bodies of water, which we technically would have to drink extra water for later.

Something I learned from you and your sister is to make ice cubes of grapes and eat them as snacks. Also a good way to get water:) Thank you for being so inspiring Kathrine!
