How to Make Herb-Infused Spa Water
Drinking the recommended 8 glasses of water a day can be challenging. But make no mistake: Staying hydrated should be a top priority. You lose water every day when you breathe, sweat and go to the bathroom, so it makes sense that you must replenish your body with fluid.
Drinking plenty of water can also help control appetite, which is great for people who are trying to lose weight, which includes many prediabetics.
If you’re an athlete or live in a hot climate, hydration is especially important. Starving your body of water can lead to light-headedness and muscle cramps. Not to mention severe thirst!
Our Prediabetes Concierge Chef believes that spa water is the perfect solution for people who need to hydrate more often. Infusing your water with delicious fruits, veggies and herbs not only gives it great flavor (making it a healthier alternative to flavored juices), it also makes it more visually appealing!
It’s a relaxing indulgence that can bring tranquility and peace… with just one sip!
Try these palate-pleasing spa-water combinations:
- Honeydew and mint
- Cantaloupe and basil
- Cucumber and mint
- Orange and strawberry
- Lime, blueberry and mint
To make the spa water, simply put sliced fruit, veggies or sprigs of herbs in a pitcher of water and let steep for at least 2 hours. Easy peasy!
