Naturally flavored fruit water infused with a variety of fresh fruit and herbs + Summer Vitamins.
Texas summers are horrible! All that Texas heat and humidity drain my energy every year and have me dreaming about fall. I don't mind when the temps are in the 80's, but when the mercury pushes 100+ it can get unbearable pretty quick. When the temperature starts to skyrocket all I want to do is stay inside an air conditioned house sipping something cool.
When it's hot outside, it's very important to keep hydrated and drink plenty of water. Personally, I have a hard time drinking plain water, so I don't consume as much as recommended. Recently I've found that the only way I can drink enough plain water is if I jazz it up a bit by adding fresh fruit and make Fruit Infused Water.
By adding slices of lemons, limes, and other fruits it makes the water more appealing and I chug it right down. Fruit infused water also has a lot of nutritional benefits, because nutrients and vitamins are released out of the fruit and into the water. It's like making my own vitamin water, but without all the yucky ingredients, dyes, and additives. Lately I've become addicted to this stuff.
Besides keeping hydrated my family has been also trying to include a multivitamin into our everyday life. This is especially important for my kids, because they don't consume enough fruits and vegetables on a daily basis. My youngest son is a very picky eater, so vitamins are a must for him.
