I keep a water bottle on my desk in the hopes that it will inspire me to drink more water and less soda. Some days it works and other days, well… that good old vending machine wins the battle. But I keep fighting the good fight and one day I will be victorious!
Last week, I was walking past a coworker’s desk and she had the prettiest strawberry and mint infused water sitting next to her computer. All I could think was, “I bet that tastes better than soda.” A-ha! I had it! Perhaps fruit infused water will be the key to my drinking more water and less soda!
In the hopes of staying hydrated this summer AND in the hopes of drinking less soda, I created a collection of fruit infused water recipes. Totally worth a try! And oh-so-pretty, too. I think this cooking coward is about to find her way into her kitchen…
