Infused Water

So I have been totally slacking on gym lately...or more like for the last 6 months. I do minor cardio here and there but nothing dedicated, which makes it harder to stick to a schedule. So, now that I am back from a mini vacation, I decided to finally do it. And along with that start eating healthier.

One thing I recently tried is Infused Water. I love the taste of water so I never felt the need to change the taste of it, but this is something I can do. And for a lazy bum like me, it is very realistic habit to stick to! I tried two different types, but it seems you can do pretty much anything you want when it comes to infused water.

Lemon and Mint. Basically 1-2 sclices or lemon and 3-4 leaves of mint per glass. Fill it up with water and leave in the fridge for about 2 hours min, and no more than 8. I find mint gets bitter over time so 2-4 hours is what I liked. It tastes very refreshing, esp on a hot summer day even during a workout!

I was making a smoothie and decided to throw some leftover berried in a glass, following the exact same method. Result: AMAZING! It was like drinking a strawberry shake,  but lighter and healthier. I love the taste of strawberries, so this could be an easy way to trick your mouth into having something "sweet" without all the calories. I know our brains are smarter than that, but hey at least you get some good old antioxidants in your system this way!
