In order to encourage me to drink more I make water tasty and healthy; by adding flavoring. I add in real food, herbs and fruit primary.
Frozen fruit helps keep my water chill while adding flavorings. Today I made orange ginger.
I slice up the oranges and ginger pretty thin, and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. A few hours later I throw them into a ziplock baggie.
As I need some I take a few pieces out and add to my water. It tastes fantastic and I feel so much better after drinking water. It also ends up super quick, just as much time to open a soda can as throwing a few pieces of fruit in water. It's even frugal, it breaks down to a few cents per glass, much cheaper than a soda.
Now doesn't that look refreshing.
