At the beginning of the year, I made myself a promise, not to lose weight, not to go to the gym but to be more healthy. Be it in the foods I eat or walking rather than driving, I've tried lots of ways to live a healthier lifestyle. One of the first things I changed was how much water I was drinking... initially drinking 2 litres of water each day (and not really drinking anything else), this didn't last as long as I had hoped though because let's face it, drinking water all day every day is a little bit/very boring.
Last month I was sent a contraption called an Aqua Zinger, a water bottle which infuses water with flavours from fruits such as strawberries, blueberries and cucumber to herbs such as mint and basil... you can pretty much try anything you want and if you fancy a naughty day, just sprinkle in a bit of sugar or some honey! As soon as I received it, I had to give it a try, it seemed so easy and such a great way to get your daily water plus a kick of flavour from some fresh fruit.
I have experimented with quite a few flavours now... my favourites being lemon, lime and mint, pineapple and cherry and the flavour I made today for myself and Elodie which is mandarin, lemon and raspberry with a tiny bit of basil.
The best thing about this, is how quick and easy it is to do... chop up the fruit, pop it into the base and twist, fill the bottle with cold water, shake and leave... 20-30 minutes later your drink is ready.
What I have noticed about all of the flavours I have tried is that they are always refreshing and always taste good! It's the easiest way for me to get Elodie to drink water and get some vitamins from the fruit.
I've even poured some into ice lolly moulds to freeze for a treat for Elodie after school.
What flavour do you think I should try next?
You can buy the Aqua Zinger in pink or blue here.
There's also a Vodka Zinger which I may have to try next!
