A Hint of Flavor

Dear FlyLady, 

I put the Stainless Steel Water Bottle on my Christmas wish list, and was lucky enough to receive it from my Mom, along with a few other things from the FlyShop.

It comes with me to work every day, and back home every night. It fits in the cup holders of my car with no problem, and has survived many falls and trips in the dishwasher. I love that it doesn’t sweat and the ice cubes last for multiple refills, even when it’s hot out.

I like using the extra straps to help me keep track of how much water I’ve had. Every time I refill, I thread another strap through.

Sometimes I get tired of plain water, but I don’t like the idea of buying expensive flavored water with all those extra chemicals and artificial sweeteners that leave an aftertaste that I just don’t care for and add more plastic in the recycle bin. Instead, I make my own.

Everyone knows about adding a slice of lemon or lime to their water, but there are so many other flavors to try. I’ll add a sprig of fresh mint, or a few thin slices of cucumber, or two or three raspberries (just don’t shake it too hard, LOL). It adds a hint of flavor, and can be re-used all day. Tomorrow I think I’ll try a slice of peach just for fun.

It’s funny how my DS11 and DD6 don’t like to drink water, yet they are always stealing sips from my bottle. This summer I’m buying one for each, plus an extra one for me so that my bottle doesn’t always have to commute with me.

A great product at a good price that supports an important service and benefits my health and the environment? What’s not to love?

FlyLady here: When I fill up my water bottle and keep it at my finger tips, I will sip all day. I love the idea of adding fresh fruit, herbs or veggies to the water to add a healthy flavoring.
