Benefits of Infused Water

Lately I’ve been trying to drink a lot more water. It’s recommended that active woman drink at least 2.2 liters of water a day, that equates to 9 glasses. Now that’s a lot of water. I tried to follow this recommendation but after a few glasses, I realized that I wasn’t crazy about the taste of water. It’s just boring, you know? So I decided that I would give infused water a try. I’ve tried strawberries, lemon, blueberries, raspberries and oranges. My favorite combination, by far is strawberries with lemon. It not only tastes delicious, but also packs a lot of added health benefits.
