I’ve been doing a good job of sticking to drinking only water. Although, I probably should say mostly water. I actually drink about 80% water throughout the day. Every once and a while a tea or a juice will find a way to sneak in. One of my commenter’s recommended that I make fruit water. I have no idea if there is a special way to do it. But, I bought a pretty pink drink set for $5, cut up some strawberries and lemons and added some water. I let it sit in the fridge for a day to let the fruit infuse with the water. And guess what? It was surprisingly refreshing. It had just a hint of lemon and a hint of strawberry. The flavors blended nicely. It does not taste anything like strawberry lemonade, but it is a nice twist on basic water with very few, if any calories. I think I’m going to take to the fruit out today, because the lemon flavor could become overbearing and make it too tart. Have you ever made fruit water? What fruit combinations do you use?
