Get ready to drink more water this week. Staying away from sugary refreshments, like concentrated juices and carbonated sweetened beverages, is one of the best things you can do for your health. And we don’t have to tell you how important it is to stay hydrated. However, plain old water isn’t always as enticing to drink. Spice up your H2O by adding fresh fruits like oranges, grapefruit or strawberries, as well as herbs such as basil, mint or cilantro. Try one of our favorite flavored fruit-cube combinations – you’ll be hydrated in no time!
