Ice Water With LimeBeing hydrated is essential for staying healthy. Water plays a critical role in keeping our mouth, heart, bloodstream, muscles, brain, skin and kidneys healthy. Water helps transport nutrients and waste, provides the body protection, helps regulate body temperature and participates in chemical reactions.

Most adults need 92 to 125 ounces of water each day. An easy way to make sure you’re getting enough water is to keep a bottle of water with you throughout the day. Leave a glass of water on your desk when at work, pack a bottle of water for school or bring a cooler full of ice and water when traveling.

One of my favorite ways to drink water is to infuse it with fruit. It is very simple and the water tastes delicious! Another way to add flavor to your water is to freeze different fruits, such as grapes, and add them to your glass of water in the place of ice cubes.
