We’ve heard and read it a million times, drink 64 ounces of water a day.  I understand the benefits of drinking water, but the taste is just so, well tasteless.  Most of the little packets you can add to water contain artificial sweeteners that aren’t the best for you even though they make water so much more tasty.  Recently, I came across an interesting article that covered a few ways to make water more enjoyable.

Here’s a few simple recipes to make water fantasmical:


  • 1/4 lemons, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed fresh mint or basil leaves
  • 6–8 cups water
  • 6–8 cups ice cubes
  • Fresh mint or basil sprigs


  • 1 slices of ripe honeydew melon
  • 1/4 lime, sliced
  • 4 sprigs of mint
  • 1 half-gallon of water


  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries, lightly crushed
  • 2  4–inch sprigs of fresh rosemary. lightly bruised  (to release more flavor)
  • 1 half-gallon of water

Please note recipes were changed to allow for a lower carbohydrate content.  These and many other great ideas can be found here:


With water this delicious, there is no excuse to not drink enough.  Put some in your to go bottle or keep a pitcher handy at the house.  Your body will thank you.
