Sexy Water in Three Simple Steps

Sexy Water in Three Simple Steps www.nuttynutritionandfitness.com

Step 1. Pour a glass of water. Step 2. Find the hot, scantily clad woman from the Carl’s Jr. commercial (or any available super model). Step 3. Have said model drink water. Bam. That water is now the second sexiest thing in the room.

Alright, if you can’t find a super model, here are a few other tricks to spice up your water. Not that water needs to be sexy all the time; but for those occasions when you want something a bit more exciting, here are some suggestions.

1. Fruit infused water. It’s spring time and strawberries are just coming into season in Southern California. Try adding fresh sliced strawberries and a handful of torn basil or mint leaves to chilled water. The berries not only add great flavor, but they add a hint of vitamin C and fiber to your water as well (if you eat them at the end). Other fruits you could add are blueberries, orange or lemon slices, and grapefruit! Fruit Infused water www.nuttynutritionandfitness.com

2. Make spa water. Add sliced cucumbers and a squirt of lemon juice to get your healthy hydration zen on. Cucumber water is refreshing and has a calming effect. It’s great to drink on a stressed out lunch break or in the evening time before going to sleep. For maximum flavor let the cucumbers sit in the water for 2-3 hours in the fridge before serving.

3. Go bubbly. Or as they say in Europe “with gas.” Hehe. Sometimes if you are craving a soda, all you are really craving is the fizz. See if you can stomp your soda craving with a glass of sparkling water instead. They even make it in cans now, so you can get the full soda effect. Just make sure that your sparkling water is not actually some diet drink in disguise. The only ingredients should be mineral water and carbonation. Watch out for non-nutritive sweeteners like sucralose, aspartame, acesulfame K, or stevia which are sometimes added to water.

4. Fun straws and cups. (For kids). Sometimes all it takes is a pretty straw to make water that much more enticing. If you have trouble with your child not wanting to drink water let them pick out a special superhero/princess cup and designate it “the water cup.” Just make sure not to buy this water.Infused Water

  1. If you use a Brita filter or similar just slice up the lemons, etc. and put directly in the pitcher! Cold, fruity water every time!

  2. Brilliant and perfect timing. Having a party tonight and concerned no one will be scantily clad. Doing the basil and strawberries now. Might do the same with some white wine… Thx

    1. hahah, thanks Susan! I hope your guests like it and have a fun party! Yea, you can totally add fruit to wine too!

  3. How about just pretend you’re a Carl’s Junior model drinking that ice cold glass or bottle of water! Less mess than the ketchup spill on the white blouse!!
