It's summer time!
That means more time outside and in nature!
Camping, swimming, visiting the beach, going to the park, kayaking down the river or on the lake, visiting parks, browsing cute shops.
It all means more activity and much more time being in the sun.
And guess what that means?
It means that we all need to make sure that we are drinking enough water and staying hydrated so we can fully enjoy all of the things we want to do!
For some, drinking water by itself is not as enjoyable as drinking soda, juice, or sweet tea in the summer, but water is essential for a healthy body!
I understand wanting some taste to what you're drinking other than water, and there is a simple solution to this.
If you prefer to have flavor in your drink, then these infused water recipes are for you!
