We’re delighted to add infused water to our fall menu- starting this September!
The benefits of infused water are greatly dependent upon which fruits, vegetables, and herbs are added. These plants add flavor without the sugar, calories, or artificial chemicals of flavored water.
The natural flavors and nutrients of the plant seeps into the water, working just like a tea bag. Instead of removing the tealeaves, however, you can leave the plants in your infused water for up to three days.
Infused water has traditionally been found in spas, but we believe it’s a fresh way to up your daily water intake while absorbing extra nutrients in the process. As mentioned above, the benefits of your water is dependent upon the plants you add to it.
Citrus infused waters are excellent at de-bloating your body from hormonal imbalances or high salt intake. Our favorite is lime, cucumber, and mint, similar to a virgin mojito. What can we say, we believe lunch hour is happy hour.
Sage has been known to reduce stress, so we highly recommend sipping it in water on a regular basis. Not only does the scent have a calming effect, the flavonoids and rosmarinic acid aids in concentration and feelings of wellbeing. Try sage with honeydew for a sweet and stress free experience.
Dark berries are loaded with antioxidants and have been known as anti-agers. We love pairing blackberries and blueberries for a rich tasting water- and to feel like we’ve found our own personal Fountain of Youth.
