Fruit Infused Water

So here we are, already 2 weeks into the New Year, and if you are like me and have already broken your new years resolution of living a healthy lifestyle, you are not alone! Every year I end up here...in desperate need of a detox. This slim down water is just the key to forgetting the last two weeks of indulgence and starting a clean slate! It is common knowledge that drinking a lot of water can be extremely beneficial. It can help you loose weight, rejuvenate your skin, get rid of body toxins, boost energy, etc. The list goes on and on. I know its important to keep hydrated, but lately I've found water to be a little bland. This detox water is not only a tastier alternative to plain water; it is healthier and can jump start a new healthy lifestyle.

Add these items to a bottle of water:

Feel free to add different varieties of fruit as well as herbs such as rosemary and sage. It not only looks pretty, but it also tastes good. 

Nothing is more motivating than buying new stuff, so go out and get a super cute tumbler or water bottle to start your cleanse. Here are a few absolutely adorable ones.

Keep it with you at all times and sip it constantly. The water and fruit fuse together and flush out all the bad toxins in your body (as well as that slice of leftover pie and bowl of ice cream), helping you maintain a flat stomach! Switching it up will keep the taste new and fresh.

Stay Classy!
