How to trick water

Is one of your New Years resolutions to drink more water? Water is amazing for your body, your cells need it to maintain your body, to regrow skin, to build muscle, to burn fat. Yet we just dont drink enough of it. Instead we turn to sodas and sugar laden flavored water. I can totally understand that sometimes water just doesn't taste all that appealing, in fact, it tastes a lot like nothing. Besides buying a Brita filter, here is my #1 tip on how to trick water into tasting a whole lot better: add citrus. You know those lemon shaped bottles with the green caps that they sell in the produce isle of the grocery store? The ones that are full of lemon juice and they sit in your fridge forever? Well a little splash of that into your glass of water will make a world of a difference. I like to add a ton into my water, but even a teaspoon will brighten up your water and give it a little zip and it tastes clean and amazing. Try this tip and let me know what you think, and if you are really feeling bold, the grocery store also sells lime juice :)

nope..even with lemon juice in the water, it still tastes boring!..i guess a cheaper alternative to a brita filter and jug is bottled water..still boring, just more purer!
