Drinking plenty of water though out my day is so important to me. Since I currently have a desk job, not only does drinking water help keep me hydrated but it also gives me an excuse to get up and walk to the water bubbler to fill up my bottle and back to my desk. I make sure to do this multiple times each day to have a good stretch. Sometimes drinking plain water can become boring day after day. Today, I am sharing a few of my favorite fruit infused water combinations and their health benefits!
As you may have seen on my Instagram story
this week, I shared a few of the combinations I am currently drinking in my KaizenOne VIVA Bottle
. So far this week I have made a lemon, orange, and mint combination and a pineapple, lemon, and pomegranate combination. I love the pineapple, lemon, and pomegranate combination as it has a little bit of a tropical flavor to it. To make each of the combinations below, simply slice up your fruit and place it in your favorite water bottle. Mine is the KaizenOne VIVA Bottle
. It is glass and has a diffuser that you place in the top if you would like to make some tea or add your fruit to the diffuser. Add some ice and water or refrigerate over night. The best part is you can fill up your bottle all day long to enjoy your fruit infused water all day long!
Here are a few combinations and their health benefits!
Lemon + Orange + Mint = Immune booster & aids in digestion
Feeling a cold coming on? Make this combination for a boost of vitamin C. Mint is also a great tummy soother. Whenever I have a bit of an upset stomach I always reach for fresh mint or mint tea.
Pineapple + Lemon + Pomegranate = Detox & Anti-inflamatory
This is one of my favorite combinations because of how delicious it is. I love pineapple and almost always have it in my fridge. Pomegranate reduces joint pain and inflammation. It also reduces blood pressure!
Lemon + Lime + Green Tea = Weight & Sugar Control
This combination is perfect to make in the KaizenOne VIVA Bottle
because of the diffuser that you can pop in and out. To make this combination, add your green tea to the diffuser pop it into the bottle and steep it in some hot water for 3 to 5 minutes. Add your lemon & lime and enjoy hot or add ice to make it an iced tea combination. Green Tea can help raise your metabolic rate which helps aid in weight loss!
Orange + Strawberry + Cranberry = Antioxidant & Vitamin Rich
This is also a delicious combination. The fruits really shine in this drink! Cranberries are a great source of Vitamin C as well as orange. They also are full of antioxidants which are so great for your overall health. Strawberries contain folate, magnesium, dietary fiber, and high amounts of vitamin C. Another great reason to create this delicious water!
