Everyone knows that staying hydrated is important but some reports show that up to 75% of the US population is chronically dehydrated! Getting in the recommended 9-13 cups per day can be difficult – and this is the recommended amount for non-athletes. For those of us sweating off our hydration we need even more. The equation I use is my body weight in ounces. That means a 150 lb woman would need to drink 150 oz of water per day (or 18.75 cups!) Sometimes it can be hard to down that much of a neutral-tasting beverage. I have created a Valentine’s version I think you will love and below are 5 more recipes to keep things interesting as you get your recommended intake.
Valentine’s XOXO Infused Water
1 green apple
I simply filled my glass with water, sliced my apples and then used “x” and “o” cookie cutters to make them into the appropriate kiss & hug shapes, halved the strawberries and added some ice. I think the colder the better!
