Look at that cute little hand! I love my little kitchen helpers, especially when they enjoy something so healthy as much as I do! I’m going to tell you about something that has COMPLETELY changed my daily water intake and give you a few tips on how you can do the same!
These here lemons are packed with amazing health benefits that you do NOT want to miss out on. I’ve been drinking lemon water for a while now, but not super consistently in the beginning. It was hard for me (for some silly reason) to get a glass, squeeze the lemon juice into the cup (while trying all the while to avoid the seeds because they gross me out), fill it with water and only be able to drink one glass full. I just didn’t feel satisfied and it felt like a lot of work. Well, either my husband can read my mind or I exhibited a little bit annoyance of this process that for my birthday he got me a new water infuser pitcher and I LOVE it! I cannot tell you how much it has changed my water drinking habits…for the better (obviously)! I’ve had it for over a month now and just can’t get enough. Let me show you how it works.
This is the pitcher. Isn’t it cute. Ok, really it’s just super practical and awesome. It has a screw top, and once you unscrew it the infuser comes out with it. So you pop open the top, pull out the infuser, and fill it up with sliced lemons.
I only sliced two lemons (as pictured above). Two lemons have plenty of juice to give! No need to de-seed, unless there are lots of little seeds that you’re worried about getting into your water glass, but otherwise, just plop them in the infuser, fill the pitcher up with water, screw the lid on tight, give it a couple of good shakes and let the infusion begin! I’m able to keep the lemons in for an entire week before I feel like it needs more flavor, and even then I throw out the lemons and feel as if I’m throwing away perfectly fresh ones. They still look as good as the day they were sliced!
Now, there’s no more excuses to not drink my morning lemon water, there’s a full pitcher waiting for me. Sometimes I will go through an entire pitcher in one day! (Especially when my kids remember to ask for lemon water instead of regular…they LOVE this stuff!)I’ll just fill it up before climbing into bed at night then it’s ready for me the next day! I seriously LOVE it! I drink a big glass of this water first thing in the morning when I wake up. It jump starts your digestive system, flushes your system, hydrates your skin and boosts your immune system AND metabolism and sets your body to “go mode” for the day. There are so many benefits to drinking lemon water I just LOVE it!
Ever since I’ve started using this infuser my skin is more hydrated, my acne is clearing up, my digestive issues have decreased, and I pee a ton more! Ha! 😉 What…it’s true, I’m flushing out my system, plus I’m pregnant…so I think it’s a good thing! On top of everything else that’s awesome about this pitcher, you can’t beat the price. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m actually not that great at spending a ton of money, but with this you don’t have to. For less than $15 you can have it shipped to your home from amazon. So easy! I promise I’m not getting paid to post about this product, I just honestly really love it.
There are so many other recipes to try, but so far we’ve enjoyed the lemons the most. You can infuse cucumber and mint, cranberries and oranges, strawberries and kiwi, lemon and lime, the options are endless! Whatever you choose, enjoy it! Get your pitcher and start enjoying the benefits that come with drinking so much more water! I promise it will be worth it. 🙂
