Refreshing Citrus Infused Water

Let’s face it, drinking the daily recommended amount of water can be tough. Like, you are drowning in the lack of flavor and your tastebuds are bored. (We simply cannot have bored tastebuds. It’s one of the cardinal rules of being a certified food-lover.) Fortunately, citrus infused water has come to my rescue, especially during this hot, hot summer!

I swear by them for getting rid of that bulky, bloated feeling.

Cucumber and lime infused water has a light and refreshing taste. The cucumber helps with water retention since they have anti-inflammatory properties. The lime helps with digestion and is great for amping up your immune system.

Easy Citrus-Infused Water to quench your summer thirst

Strawberry and grapefruit citrus infused water is tangy and strong. The grapefruit can even give it a bitter taste, so if you don’t like grapefruit, you could swap it out with orange. Grapefruit is great for your immune system and can help boost your metabolism, which is why so many people call it the “fat-burning” super food. Strawberries contain anthocyanins, which can also prevent fat cells from enlarging and are also a great metabolism booster. Umm, yes please, and thank you very much!

Lemon, orange and mint water is hands-down my favorite of the whole bunch. Its the all day, erryday water for me. The taste is subtle and pleasant, plus I just have a weird obsession with putting lemons in anything I can get my hands on. (Making a cake? Put a lemon in it. Eating breakfast? Lunch? Dinner? Anything and everything? It needs a lemon, FOR SURE.) Anyway, the lemons are great for cleansing out your digestive system, the orange and peel are a great immune system booster, and mint helps soothe your stomach.
