How to Drink More Water

Mira-Waterbottles

Mira Stainless Steel Water bottles

These awesome bottles come in two sizes: 24 ounce and 17 ounce. I personally prefer the 24 ounce as my goal is to drink 72 ounces of water per day. These bottles keep cold liquids cold for a day even if you leave them in a hot car. I put ice in mine and the ice is still good the next day. Mira bottles are also good for hot coffee or tea, just be careful because these liquids will retain their heat very well. They come in cool colors. No plasticisers to worry about and the bonus is an entire bottle of wine will fit in the 24 ounce bottle! Mom will love this gift!

Prodyne Fruit Infusion Water Pitcher

Everyone knows hydration is important, but some of us don't get around to drinking enough. These fruit infusion pitchers elevate a simple drink of water into a tasty refreshment. I load mine with an assortment of fruits and herbs. Try lemons, limes, oranges, cucumbers, strawberries, mango, watermelon, pineapple, kiwi, mint, thyme and basil. Water never tasted so good! 

 

Copper Serving Pieces

If you are a Moscow mule fan, you know how nice it is to sip your cocktail from a chilled copper mug. Copper keeps liquids icy cold and has been found to purify contaminated water. Some believe drinking water from copper provides a range of health benefits. Here are some serving pieces from our favorite Moscow mule mug manufacturer, Sertodo:

Tools to Eat More Vegetables

Try our zoodle recipes: Zoodles with leeks, pancetta and sundried tomatoes, Zoodles carbonara and Zoodles with sausage and rapini.
