January: The season of resolution and an opportune time to set small goals (alongside your big ones) to celebrate victories along the way. When we came across The Everygirl's 30 Days of Hydration Challenge, we knew that would be the perfect, simple way to make a small stride towards a healthier us in the first month of this new year!
Here are a few of our favorite infused water recipes:
1. WATERMELON + BLUEBERRIES + LEMON THYME
We love the way this recipe floats at different levels in the bottle, doubling as an eye-pleasing display! We recommend adding the blueberries first, then the watermelon, then the lemon thyme. If you're going for a less subtle flavor, we recommend slicing or smashing the blueberries, and crushing the lemon thyme a bit to release more of its taste and smell.
2. LEMON + LAVENDER
Simple and soothing. If you prefer to have more of a lemon taste, squeeze then place your lemons into the bottle. We recommend you crush the lavender as well to make sure it doesn't get lost in the lemon!
3. GRAPEFRUIT + CUCUMBER + MINT
This was our favorite of the three! If you've ever tried it, you know it's a flavorful and refreshing way to stay hydrated. The benefits of adding grapefruit + mint are endless, but include getting a good fill of antioxidants -- boosting metabolism and aiding in disease prevention. Plus it just makes for a gorgeous bottle display and you are what you eat, right?
