Ways to get more Water

·      Flavour with lemon, lime, orange, etc

·      Make your own ice tea by brewing it overnight in the fridge or simply add a tea bag to your water bottle

·      Sweeten with stevia, xylitol or honey if needed

·      Add Chlorophyll- detoxifies, great for body odour or bad breath, can be apple or mint flavoured

 Great Alternatives to keep your summer COOL:
