Without adding unnatural chemicals to your diet, these simple additions can give your water flavor and help you combat that nasty bloat. So if you want to make your water intake a more pleasurable time, get your recipe books ready!
1. Cucumber, Lemon, And Mint Water
This combination is supposed to help energize you and provide your body with antioxidants. It doesn’t only have a refreshing taste but can help with digestion and inflammation!
Slice half a cucumber and one lemon and add it to a jug with a few sprigs of mint, fill it up with water and let it infuse overnight. You might enjoy having water with a different taste, and if you’re missing your soda, this should help curb the craving!
2. Ginger Mint
Ginger has many great qualities; it can help strengthen your immune system and aid in digestion and inflammation. If you suffer from nausea in the morning, drinking this infusion may keep you from gagging at the sight of food!
You’ll need a thinly sliced cucumber, two inches of ginger root peeled and grated, two lemon wedges, about twelve mint leaves, and a pinch of Himalayan salt. If you don’t want to grate the ginger, you can also finely chop it as long as it’s finely sliced; it can infuse well!
3. Watermelon Mint
Watermelon is a summer favorite! It’s great as an evening dessert and best when served chilled. But what can it do when you infuse it in water?
Watermelon has minerals that help our kidneys filter out toxins. So cube a cupful of watermelon, grab a handful of mint and put it in a jug of water, and enjoy this summer infusion.
