Infuse Water with Fresh Fruit

"In the morning I fill a pitcher with filtered water and flavor it with lemon slices, orange slices, berries, or cucumber slices. It is so refreshing and tastes great—even my daughter asks for a glass."

"I'm not a fan of water, so I make what my daughter calls 'fake lemonade.' I put ice and filtered water in a glass with lemon juice and a packet of Sweet-N-Low. It is cheaper than Crystal Light and has a great lemon flavor with a hint of something sweet to curb my cravings!"

"I slice up fresh fruit and put it in the bottom of my glass, with ice on top. My goal is to drink it all to get the reward of fruit on the bottom. My kids love to do it, too. I also freeze fruit into ice cubes and add them to water."

"I love citrus fruits or cucumber in my water, but my favorite way to flavor it is with fresh herbs! I'll crush a little bit of rosemary, basil, or mint and just drop it into a pitcher of water. I strain the water before drinking and can't stop sipping all day!"
