Sounds odd, but I love the taste of lemon, in my water. I’ve made a New Years “If March was January” resolution to drink more water. Problem is, I can’t stand when water tastes, except if it has lemon in it. Tap water often times makes me gag after drinking because of the lead/graphite/zinc/acid rain that I feel like I am tasting when I drink it. I am such a Brita Water Filter snob it really isn’t funny anymore. Being that my office doesn’t have a large water cooler like it should, they buy the mini waters and store them in the basement. That is all fine and good but my husband might divorce me if I honetly drank 12 of those a day and put that much plastic back into the earth. That is why Brita Water Filters are so amazing…you get your fresh, tasteless water, without the pollution, but I feel weird bringing my own Brita to work.
So, what I did on March 1, I bought a couple lemons, cut them into wedges and every morning I put one in my new Camelbak water bottle, fill it with my Brita water, and then throughout the day I continue to fill it with tap water. It’s amazing how the lemon wedge completely eliminates any bad taste from your water.
This is the first resolution I have stuck with ever, I am on week 2 and still at 86%! I feel GREAT, like those people who vow to go to the gym everyday once January hits, and they actually accomplish doing it…for the two weeks.
I’ll report back next week.
