Our body is made up of about 75% of water and many of us don’t drink enough water to hydrate ourselves. In our hot weather, we should be drinking more and it is hard to do that because normal water is boring and doesn’t taste good. Many of us turn to soft drinks because it taste better although it is sweetened with sugar and it is not a healthy drink. To steer us away from drinking unhealthy sodas, we turned to water fruit infusions (infused water) for a healthier option, it is just as thirst quenching if not even more and it doesn’t add the extra pounds around our waistlines or cause us to have diabetes. We also found that infusing water instead of drinking sodas or adding syrups makes water taste better and it is also beautiful to look at!
