Dietician Trish Brimhall with Nutritious Intent speaks about the importance of drinking water. Many people do not like drinking water because they find a lack of taste in it. She shares a variety of ways you can make water more enjoyable.
Things you can do to make water taste better:
- Add fruit: A few slices of seasonal fruit or cucumber can alter the taste of plain water without adding unwanted sweeteners and calories.
- Add herbs: A few crushed mint leaves, lemon grass, rosemary or basil can do the trick as well.
- Ice it: Whether plain ice cubes do the trick, or ice cubes with a few drops of lemon or other juice are needed, cold water is often more palatable than tepid water.
- Add bubbles: A little sparkling water may be more to your liking, just avoid resorting to sweetened (caloric or non-caloric) sodas.
