Confession #90 – I suck at drinking water. Sorry to put it so bluntly, but it’s true.
I used to blame my job. Nobody wants to leave a group of middle school students unattended…even to use the bathroom. But I’ve been a SAHM now for a year and my water intake still suffers most days.
Just ask my mom, who reminds me to drink some water every time she is here. That woman is like a thirsty camel.
And I’m not a soda or juice drinker, but I do love fruit infused water. That little hint of flavor is just enough to keep me sipping throughout the day…not only is it hydrating, it’s somehow relaxing, too. Like the Caribbean vacation my husband and I took where we were served water flavored with fresh cucumber and mint or strawberries and sage.
I even remember saying how I was going to make my own flavor infused water when we got home. Yes…in all my free time. I love “vacation” me.
Anyway, when the wonderful people at Auntie Gretchen’s sent me a few samples of their All Natural Water Infusions, I was excited to see if it would help me get my daily ounces in.
I added a 1/2 tsp of the Strawberry Basil Water Essence to my bottle of water and was instantly hooked. The subtle fruit and herb flavor was just enough – not overly sweet or over powering. And I found myself chugging my bottle of water so I could try the Real Pineapple next. Another winner!
Because Auntie Gretchen’s uses real organic fruit, it really does taste like you made a pitcher of fresh infused water. Except you didn’t. No cutting. No waiting. Refreshing water in seconds!
The best news? You use such a tiny amount, it’s literally zero calories. Zilch.
