Water Is So Boring.

But it doesn't have to be.

We all know water is good for us.  It stokes your metabolism so you burn more calories all day. It helps you stay energized, keeps you regular, and can improve your skin. 

Add one of the following to a glass a water for a tasty change to that boring water:

Cucumber
Lime
Lemon
Orange
Ginger
Mint Leaves
Lemongrass
Lavender
Rose Hips
Cherries
Mango
Pineapple
Watermelon
