With only a few more weeks left of April I have to find new ways to stay motivated on this healthy lifestyle journey. Last week I attended a spa week (there’s still time to book your appointments click here ) and I received a Spa Water book, which sparked this challenge. This book contains tons of recipes of various types infused water recipes for healthy eating and drinking. My coworker also randomly gave me an infused water recipe and so I took that as a sign.
So what is infused water exactly?
Fruit infused water is exactly what it states. It is water mixed with fruits and herbs with amazing health benefits, including getting rid of belly fat.
The most popular fruit infused water is lemon water and some of the benefits of drinking lemon water include:
- Boosts your immune system
- Decreases wrinkles and blemishes
- Flushes unwanted materials out of your system
- Relieves respiratory problems
Health Benefits of drinking Fruit and Herb Infused Water
- Weight Loss
- Younger and Healthier Looking Skin
- More Energy
- Better Taste/Flavors
- More Nutrients, Vitamins, and Antioxidants
- Improves Digestion
- Improves Immune System
- Improves your Mood
So for this challenge I will be replacing my usual fruit juices with fruit infused water. My goal is to drink at least 32 oz. per day for the next 14-days.
The ingredients and materials for the next 14-days.
1. Spa Water by Pam Wenzel (for inspiration)
3. Mason Jars
4. Fruit and Vegetable brush (for the non organic products)
12. Berries (strawberry, raspberry and blueberry)
I will use 6-10 recipes over the course of the two-weeks. I will not try a new recipe each day because of my schedule and prepping for the week is easier than a new prep each day. I will be using the Spa Water book for inspiration but I will mainly “freestyle” my recipes. I will also be noting the effects of drinking fruit infused water as well. So stay tuned for the updates and if you are going to participate leave a comment below!
