In this article, we give you a selection of drinks and tricks that you can use to drink more willingly, all year round and even between meals! Keep reading to find out more about these tips.
1 – Buying Plain Water
Avoiding buying only sparkling water, which often swells the belly, the ideal would be to drink a liter and a half or two liters of plain water a day. To make sure you do this, even if you don’t feel thirsty, get used to having a couple of sips as soon as you wake up, before breakfast.
It is an excellent help against constipation and removes that unpleasant feeling of a sticky mouth. At lunch, drink the bare essentials while you get into the habit of always having a half-liter bottle in your bag, convenient to carry around and drink regularly.
Whenever someone offers you a coffee at the bar, remember to ask for a glass of water too. Even before going to bed, drink a glass of plain water. In short, drinking water must become one of your main thoughts! Also try alternating simple tap or mineral water with flavored or detox water. The lemon and cucumber one is purifying and antioxidant.
2 – Drink Tea
If you really can’t drink only water all the time, there are a series of drinks that you can enjoy, non-caloric (if consumed without added sugar) and with excellent and varied properties. Tea is a drink that you consume warm in winter and cool in summer.
Try green tea, which is packed with beneficial antioxidant properties. If you want to experiment a little and spice up your tea, try a Black Tea Rose Red Tea with cinnamon and vanilla. There are hundreds of types and flavors of tea on the market that can satisfy any palate, even yours! But remember not to add sugar!
3 – Herbal Teas
A tasty alternative to water are herbal teas. If you prefer to rely on ready-made preparations, choose one of the hundreds of herbal teas that exist, and that can allow you to unwind, promote digestion, and help deflate the abdomen or drain liquids.
For example, to combat cellulite, you have to prefer those that contain horsetail and nettle, which have a draining effect, while herbal teas that contain fennel help you digest.
If you lack inspiration, online you can discover lots of herbal teas that you can make at home to purify the body.
4 – Fresh Made Juices
Certainly the healthiest and most vitamin-rich drinks you can choose are a fruit and vegetable juice or a citrus juice. Almost all bars are now equipped to prepare the most varied combinations, which you can choose instead of packaged fruit juice.
Even during the lunch break, get used to accompanying your sandwich with a fresh made orange or grapefruit juice. Your body will thank you, giving you more beautiful skin and an energy that you did not feel before!
