What are some good ways to drink water without fake additives and fizzy tablets?
So what to drink? I really enjoy juice spritzers, which is about 8 oz. of sparkling water with about 2 oz. 100% fruit juice splashed in, not too sweet, but flavorful and very refreshing. Many people love squeezing a lemon or lime (or orange) wedge into their water, which is easy and looks pretty. If you're ambitious, you can make your own homemade lemonade or limeade using squeezed lemons/limes and lightly sweeten with Stevia or agave syrup. Adjust the proportions to your liking. Unsweetened or lightly sweetened iced tea is a good choice too; it contains antioxidants that some studies have shown are beneficial. For commercial drinks, IZZE sparkling juices are good. They are a 50/50 blend of sparkling water and pure fruit juice. They do contain plenty of sugar from the fruit juice though, but split the bottle with a friend and on occasion some fruit juice doesn't hurt.
