The amount of water I consume can rival a camel, it was not always this way, there was a time before I discovered the thirst quenching qualities of water my tipple of choice was either ginger beer (I know!), black current Ribena (can it get any sweeter?!) The closest I got to anything remotely healthy was orange juice – freshly squeezed not that concentrate muck! My health rehabilitation has been so effective that the other aforementioned sweet beverages rarely,…… scrap that, virtually NEVER pass my lips.
Despite my preference for H2O, I understand why a lot of people just don’t get the appeal, the general consensus is the lack of taste, of course there is the option of flavoured water – I’m more of a purist and tend to avoid any artificial flavourings. However, I am not adverse to enhancing the flavour naturally by adding a slice of lemon – great for increasing alkaline levels, for those of you who are a little more adventurous there is the Zing Anything products, which are designed to extract the natural essence from ingredients in order to infuse water, iced tea, a cheeky vodka or whatever you would like to zing!
