Fruit Infused water

In an attempt to get more healthy I have been incorporating some of these "recipes" to my everyday water routine. We all know we should drink more water, for some this is easier than others. I am someone who drinks water about 90 percent of the time foregoing soft drinks and juices for fruit infused creations. I have a pink Nalgene bottle of water with me at all times when I leave the house. Whether I'm in the car, at work or on the beach my bottle is close by. Voss glass water bottles are also a good alternative. In the past couple years I started adding lemon and at times cucumber to the water for a bit more variety. Now thanks to all the inspiration and information about detox water on Pinterest and other blogs I have started to incorporate some of the below recipes. These alternatives do not only add interest and look pretty but have good detox qualities as well. Below are a few of my favourites. 

Mint and Lemon Water
This quick detox water is one of my morning go to's. First I clean the mint, then cut the lemons into slices and fill a pitcher with water and ice. If I have time the night before I will do it before I go to bed - it's even better when it has time to settle. Mint and Lemon water is both refreshing and good for fat burning! Image

Strawberry water is a perfect summer drink. I usually cut up about six or seven good sized strawberries into slices and leave in my pitcher in the fridge over night. The next day the water has a lovely hint of fruit. Image

Lime water is basically lemonade without the sugar and surprisingly delicious. Lime water is very refreshing and also has great detoxing properties. Add mint for a little something extra. Image
