Drink More Water

Refreshing and healthy. Make water your drink of choice. Sodas, sweet tea, and other sugary drinks taste great but are high in calories. So drink water. Add lemon or other natural flavorings if you like. Your body will thank you.

 

Did you know over 60% of your body is made of water?

Water is a vital nutrient and is needed for survival by all living things. Water regulates body temperature, lubricates joints, nourishes the brain and spinal cord, and helps remove waste from the body.

Make Better Beverage Choices

What you drink is as important as what you eat. Many beverages contain added sugars and offer little or no nutrients. Use these tips to help you make better beverage choices.
 

Make Flavored Water

  1. Choose a fruit that is ripe and in season. Blackberries, blueberries, lemons, limes, oranges, raspberries, peaches, and melons are good choices.
  2. Cut the fruit into small pieces, about the size of a quarter.
  3. Fill a pitcher with cold water and fresh fruit.
  4. Refrigerate for later, or enjoy over ice!
