Who knew we were trying to be healthy?
Monday, June 09, 2014
Over 15 years ago we remodeled our kitchen. It really needed it (old appliances, avocado colored boomerang Formica and very dark cheap cabinetry). Why am I telling you about this now? Well 15 years ago I had no idea, I’d be eating a mostly, super healthy diet, being active every day and maintaining a healthy weight, but we knew we wanted to move my kitchen sink under the beautiful sunlit corner of my kitchen. The problem with that desire was that it left a huge pie-shaped area that was pretty useless for storage. After discussing options with our contractor, we decided to install a reverse osmosis, filtration system under the sink so we could improve the taste of our water. This is the one we bought from Culligan.
Now 15 years later we are still using the filter. I use it to make my 2 cups of coffee in the morning. My husband and I go through almost a gallon of delicious cold water every evening at dinner. The remodel was for aesthetic purposes and it still looks great. Buying the filter was an afterthought but it turned out to be really important healthy lifestyle change component because the water still tastes great. It’s also really nice to avoid dealing with all of those plastic drink bottles that we would have needed otherwise.
