We all know that a well hydrated body functions well and the importance of drinking and eating enough water, right? Sure we do. Our bodies and the Earth are approximately 70% water. How weirdly cool is that? The thing is, sometimes chugging back the liquidy stuff isn’t as sexy and exciting as we’d hope. That’s why I’m here to share with you how to totally revolutionise water as you know and love it.
Step 1 – Start collecting your own spring water!
I could literally bang on about this ALL day. Ask my friend Gary, I bored the actual shit out him one day, giving him the low-down about the awesomeness of ancient wells and springs. I probably am some kind of hyrdosexual. That’s it, I’m outing myself. I am a hydrosexual. Deal with it, yo!
I did a wee video of me at my favourite spring a while back. Don’t dare laugh at my hat, it’s amazing. Spring water is live and wild and probably definitely the most amazing water you can drink. You can find springs in your area using findaspring.com or the megalithic portal or just generally googling the shit out of it. God, I love spring hunting.
Step 2 – Funk that liquid up with some AMAZING fruit and vegetables.
This is where it gets sexy. Chop up some of your fave fruits and veg and add to the water. Get creative. Use strawberries, oranges, lemon, cucumber, pear, apple, celery, fennel, kiwi, raspberries, goji berries, herbs, pineapple… the list quite obviously goes on. The thing is you can mix and match all of these to create some truly sexual flavoured water. Well better than the bottled crap in the stupormarket, full of chemicals and preservatives. Ick!
The water absorbs the wonderful flavours and vitamins/minerals in the fruit. Leave overnight in the fridge for the best flavour then chuck the leftovers in your smoothie.
Trust me, this will have you drinking water ’til your eyeballs start floating!
