Increasing Water Intake...

I have three ways to make water taste better....I don't like drinking plain water so I add some fresh or bottled lemon juice and stevia and turn it into lemonade. (When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.) Click for more info....

Another way is to use "invisible" Kool Aid and stevia which is Kool Aid without food coloring in it. A 3rd way I make water taste better is to use Mexican/Hispanic fruit powder called Klass, add stevia (of course). My favorite flavors of Klass are mango, guava, watermelon, pineapple & cantalope.

    Great ideas. The cost of the Hispanic fruit powder is also less than it's American counterpart. I'm enjoying my water more already. BTW, Diet Cranberry juice is very low in calories and carbs and is also a good addition to your daily fluid intake.

    This is so much better than drinking sodas, and the lemon is definely good and healthy too.

    Someone asked where to buy is found in Hispanic grocery stores or in the Hispanic section of large chain groceries like Cub Foods. I recently found a supply of the pinapple flavor at the Hispanic grocery and it tastes like pineapple juice with no calories when I add stevia for sweetener.

    I put a little of the crystal lite powder in a glass of water just to color it and five a little flavor. It makes the water go down so much easier. emoticon
