How are you? How's the week?
I'm excited to share with you a new FAVORITE.
One time I did the math for how much I spend on beverages alone in one week, and it's around $85. Swear.
I am sort of over plain water lately.
Anyone with me?
I drink kombcuha almost everyday, I'm a sucker for a good green juice, Rebel beverages, La Croix...I am pretty much over regular water.
I need something new ya know?
But, staying hydrated is SO KEY for me and feeling energized, feeling good about my skin and my bod, so I need to keep it spicy to stay interested. If I am dehydrated, I can see fine lines on my face (thanks to being #almost30) and I look so much healthier and alive when I've had my 64 oz a day.
Yes, that's how much I normally drink! If not more :)
The major game changer for me is having my water bottle next to me in the morning. I wrote about my morning rituals before here, and I LOVE that with a water bottle infuser I can have a lemon infused water right with me in the A.M. I drink an entire one in the A.M.
Benefits of staying hydrated:
Aid in weight loss
Increases energy and relieves fatigue
Improves skin complexion
Boosts your immune system
So I was on the hunt for a water infuser, to add some vitamins, add some fruit, add some excitement to my water.
In comes my little buddy, the Kaizen One Viva Bottle. No one in L.A. can be mad at me for carrying plastic anymore, and I can spice it up 100 ways. I love this one because it's super sleek, real glass, and can be hot OR cold. So I'll throw tea in there too, in the morning on my way out for work.
How it works is, it has this little silver bucket, that you can fill with whatever fruits, tea, herbs, anything, in the top. Pop that in and then fill-er-up with water, and after a minute or so, you have infused water to enjoy.
More exciting, and a change to keep you drinking water, staying hydrated and happy.
Other (on brand) details about the Viva Bottle:
It's made with natural bamboo with silicon seal to keep your bev from leaking
It has a stainless steel strainer and infuser basket
It's double walled glass so that your bev keeps the temperature you want longer
I've also got a few more ideas for mixing it up with your viva!
Infused Water Ideas:
Cuties (the little oranges fit in perfect!)
Grapefruit + Rosemary
Cucumber + Lime
Grape + Orange
Sakara Detoxifying Tea + Stevia
(15% off your Sakara order with ALMOST30LOVE code)
Chai Spice Tea + a dash of Cinnamon
Lemon Ginger Tea + a dash of Turmeric
Ginger Tea + Apple Cider Vinegar + Stevia
I've been doing the lemon water in the A.M., then a Sakara detoxifying tea, and in the afternoon for something sweet. Either grapefruit or watermelon.
If I am eating any fruit, really I'll pop some in my water to give it that extra flavor. No calories, just goodness.
It's such a game changer for me to try to reduce my snack attacks.
I feel like I ALWAYS need to be eating or drinking something, LOL
So this seriously helps hydration and curbing my sweet tooth.
(I swear that thing runs my life).

I genuinely suggest checking this out and make sure to:
Try different ingredients! I haven't found one I didn't like yet :)
2. Do your research
Find which fruits and teas will benefit you the most. Then, throw those in there!
