10 Fresh Ideas To Do With Your Water | Real Food RN

Everyone needs water, every day, no way around it. But, we don’t just have to drink plain old water. Spice it up a bit and add some great flavors that also have added nutritional benefits. Say goodbye to plain old water with these 10 fresh ideas to do with your water! 

1) Lets start with the basics : Lemon/cucumber
  • In a large pitcher add sliced organic lemon and sliced organic cucumber — here is the pitcher I use
  • Pour water over top
  • Let sit in the fridge over night for best flavor
  • Very refreshing and alkalizing

2) Antioxidant boost: Berry/lemon balm (lemon balm and berries are some of the highest-ranking antioxidant foods)

  • In a large pitcher add the berries and smash them a little with a wooden spoon
  • In a mortar and pestle muddle the lemon balm — here is where to get a mortar and pestle
  • Add to the pitcher and cover with water
  • Let sit in the fridge over night for best flavor

3) The prebiotic & probiotic boost: (prebiotics and probiotics work together to establish and maintain healthy gut flora)

  • In a large blender add one bottle kombucha, 1 ripe banana, 2 cups ice, and water
  • Blend until its a nice slushy
  • Enjoy right away!

4) Immune booster: watermelon/rosemary (both contain immune-boosting properties)

  • In a large pitcher add in water melon chunks
  • Smash the water melon chunks with a wooden spoon. In a mortar and pestle muddle rosemary
  • Add to pitcher and cover with water
  • Store in the fridge over night for best flavor

5) Blood sugar control: cinnamon/green tea (both help regulate healthy blood sugar levels)

  • Brew up some green tea
  • Pour into large pitcher
  • Add ice
  • Add cinnamon
  • Mix very well
  • Enjoy right away!

6) Anti-inflammatory: pineapple/lemon (interestingly, the core contains the highest amount of bromelain, which is the anti-inflammatory part of the pineapple. I save the cores in the freezer for smoothies or to cut into cubes to cool off my beverages)

  • Slice pineapple and lemon and add to large water pitcher
  • Store in fridge over night for best flavor
  • Alternately, you can blend these ingredients with some ice and enjoy right away!

7) Wake-up water: lemon/ginger/cayenne powder

  • Slice organic lemons and ginger
  • Add to large pitcher and cover with water
  • Add cayenne powder to heat tolerance
  • Mix well and let sit in fridge overnight for most intense hot flavor

8) Herb water: rosemary/sage/basil

  • In a mortar and pestle, muddle the herbs
  • Add to large pitcher and pour water over top
  • Store in fridge over night for best flavor

9) Natural Sprite: lemon/lime/stevia

  • Make up some carbonated water using a Soda Stream — where to get
  • Slice lemons and limes into wedges
  • Squeeze the lemon and limes into the pitcher and then throw the squeezed wedges into pitcher
  • Pour carbonated water over top and add liquid stevia to desired level of sweetness
  • Enjoy right away!

10) Give your digestion a boost: Ginger/mint/lemon

  • In a large pitcher add sliced organic lemon and sliced ginger
  • Muddle the mint in a mortar and pestle
  • Add to the pitcher and pour water on top
  • Let sit in the fridge over night for best flavor
