Finally – a way to drink something that has tons of flavor as well as super health qualities! Although I say “finally” – aficionados of the natural way will not be surprised that these “ancient recipes” beat all comers. Because as they say, “There’s nothing new under the sun”! We think this is infinitely better than some trademarked artificial-additive drink in a plastic bottle. The link to the full recipe is at the foot of the article, after our commentary (as usual).

Part of the problem people often have with staying hydrated is, quite simply, that chugging water throughout the day seems boring. But that’s how they get you – with artificial beverages that excite your taste buds, but might even harm you in the long run. Making your own fruit water gives you some delicious flavor and nutritional qualities while also being super-hydrating!

These easy-to-make natural waters are made with just water, fruit (organic please!), ice and herbs. They are full of nutrition, healthful qualities, delicious flavor and look fantastic as you can see! Imagine the reaction you are going to get from your guests! These drinks could also be amazingly perfect if you are detoxing or simply if you are seeking something that is refreshing and delicious without containing any artificial sugars or other chemical additives.

Here, then, is the link to the Five Amazing Recipes For Healthy Naturally Flavored Water

Don’t Forget To Wash the Produce Properly!

Note – it’s mentioned in the recipes at the link but we think it expedient to say it again – be sure to wash fruit thoroughly, especially if you are planning on leaving the drinks overnight before drinking them. You don’t want bad bacteria or even pesticides messing up your drinks.

The Problems with Plastic Bottles:

Another great benefit of this refreshing “DIY” fruit water, in addition to the amazing nutritional content: You are completely eliminating the use of evil plastic bottles and other disposable packaging.

Plastic bottles are reported to leach toxic chemicals such as BPA (and possibly phthalates, which you really don’t need) into their contents. Also, plastic garbage is spreading far and wide across the world… slowly breaking down and entering the food chain. [1] This is horrendous and needs to stop! I think it’s time to start thinking seriously about banning plastic and using natural alternatives. “Detox” and “plastic” don’t really sit very well together…

Environmental Impact:
Non-Biodegradable: Plastic bottles can take hundreds of years to decompose, contributing to long-term environmental pollution.
Ocean Pollution: Millions of tons of plastic end up in oceans, harming marine life through ingestion and entanglement.
Resource Intensive: Production of plastic bottles requires significant amounts of fossil fuels and water, exacerbating resource depletion and greenhouse gas emissions.

Health Concerns:
Chemical Leaching: Plastics can release harmful chemicals like BPA and phthalates into the water, posing health risks.
Microplastics: Over time, plastics break down into microplastics, which can contaminate drinking water and food supplies, posing unknown long-term health risks.

Waste Management Issues:
Low Recycling Rates: Despite efforts, a large percentage of plastic bottles are not recycled, leading to increased landfill and incineration.
Economic Costs: The environmental cleanup and health costs associated with plastic pollution are significant, burdening economies.

Reusable Alternatives: Using glass or stainless steel bottles reduces plastic waste.
Better Recycling Practices: Improving recycling infrastructure and policies can help manage plastic waste more effectively.
Public Awareness: Educating consumers about the impact of plastic bottles and promoting sustainable alternatives can drive change.

Plastic bottles pose significant environmental, health, and economic challenges. Shifting to reusable alternatives and improving recycling can mitigate these issues, benefiting both the planet and human health. If you’re truly committed to caring about life and future generations, you will be doing all that you can to limit your use of single-use plastic bottles. Use (and re-use!) high quality food-grade glass containers. They don’t leach anything into your food, don’t contribute to the hideous mountain of discarded plastic.. .and they look cool as well. Speaking of which, did you know that you can get Ball Mason Jars on Amazon?

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)

After 47 years of studies and countless brain scans done on more than 2,400 tinnitus patients, scientists at the MIT Institute found that in a shocking 96% of cases, tinnitus was actually shrinking their brain cells.

As it turns out, tinnitus and brain health are strongly linked.

Even more interesting: The reason why top army officials are not deaf after decades of hearing machine guns, bombs going off and helicopter noises…

Is because they are using something called "the wire method", a simple protocol inspired by a classified surgery on deaf people from the 1950s...

  1. Didn’t know they made the larger Ball jars like this. Looked into it, found out I could get them @ Walmart and will order them.
    This will be a wonderful healthy beverage for this summer. And I pride myself on my herb garden which I embellish every year. Thanks so much for this idea & recipe…

  2. thank you for sharing these wonderful drinks with us. we will most definitely add these to our repertoire. here is a drink my wife and i would blend every morning. one clove of garlic, one kale leaf, one squeezed lemon and a finger size piece of ginger with eight ounce of water. I hope you like it.

  3. I tried the Lemon/Lime on & got more rine flavor than fruit. Do I do something wrong?

  4. Please send me the water ideas. I am having chemo and drink 90 oz. of water daily. Would love the flavored waters. Thanks.

  5. For those who wish to sweeten it a bit, here’s an idea. Sevia (Truvia) is a plant based natural sweetener with ZERO calories. 1/8 teaspoon of powdered Sevia equals 1 teaspoon of sugar. FDA has approved the use as an after market sweetener. The use as an additive to commercially prepared foods and drinks is being held up for no explained reason. A clue was revealed during a congressional hearing when a lobbyist for the artificial sweetener industry requested a huge import duty be placed upon the product. Sevia is imported from Hawaii. That idea was quickly rejected by congress, since Hawaii is not a foreign country.

  6. I have two daughters who drink sodas like crazy and so do I. we are realizing we need to start drinking more healthy. These drinks look good since water is good for the body and so is fruits.

  7. You don’t have to use Mason jars. I use the restaurant-sized glass jars from various things I buy. I’ve made flavored water using; mint; lemon balm; slices of cucumber; combos of the all, including the blossoms (looks beautiful in the jar). I stuff the jar. Ummm

  8. @Rose Adamek: Try your local Hardware store (mom & pop prefferably). They should carry ball jars of most sizes. I work in one and we carry them. 🙂

  9. I can’t edit my post. I just looked at the Amazon link. $20 for Wide mouth qt ball jars? That’s INSANE! even walmart is $17, yet they’re $14 on the Ace hardware website. Hardware stores are where it’s at. 😉

  10. Truvia is terrible for you. It’s a commercially manufactured product with added artificial sweetners (dextrose I believe) also the same with Stevia in the Raw, Purvia, and several other “look-alike” products. Stevia 100% natural is an awesome plant based sweetners but many people say it has a bitter aftertaste (I’ve been using it for 4 or 5 years and haven’t noticed). The best thing to do is to read the ingredients on the label the brand I use is called Sweetleaf and it’s 100% Ribiana extract and inulin fiber that’s it that’s all that’s listed on the ingredients NO chemicals NO artificial sweeteners.

  11. all post is very nice help me to know about every fruit and vegetable purpose and function. but how to use and methods of implement this because the raw material has more in our country ,simple gate every leaves. more patient has their they need help use this affordable raw material as i told you nobody has experience how to prep er and uses. what you advice me to implement in my home land.
