I really need to drink more water.

If I get 24oz a day, that’s a good day. I drink a lot of coffee(I know, bad) and a lot of herbal teas (not too bad) but water, notsomuch.
I have been fiddling with my own flavored waters to break it up.

Natural flavored waters easy peasy recipe
(sweetened or unsweetened, your choice, but use stevia if you’re trying to keep it more natural but still low in calories and/or carbs).

Zest citrus of your choice.
Either 1 large (grapefruit, large orange) or 3 small (lemons, limes).
Add 1 cup of water to a saucepan and bring to a simmer, add the zest and simmer until the liquid is reduced by about half.
Strain through a tea strainer to remove the zest, or not
If you leave the zest in, the flavor will get more intense and eventually bitter, but if you’re using it all in a day or two, you can leave it in and strain it as you need it.
Add just a little sweetener, if desired, you’re not making a kool-aid substitute, just a mild hint of flavor.
Add about 1 teaspoon per glass of water to give it a hint of flavor.

Today’s menu plan:
Breakfast: coffee and… more coffee
Lunch: fish tacos (pan fried cod dusted very lightly with arrowroot flour to get a crust, in steamed cabbage leaves topped with shredded lettuce dressed with a little home-made mayo and rooster sauce combo
Supper: kind of in an egg mood, so maybe some simple scrambled eggs with sliced tomato and avocado on the side.
