For National Nutrition Awareness Week, we take a look at how to increase our water intake through a refreshing flavoured water recipe. Though water is amazing at its purest, there is no harm in adding a few natural flavourings to amp up the deliciousness and expand our nutrient intake.
Lime slices and juice add a tart freshness while mint lends a slightly tingly sensation that immediately cools you down. We also added in green apple and cucumber slices which intensifies the crispness of the drink. You are not even going to realise that you are enjoying a tall glass of water.
