Tip 9 is to drink more water and tip 14 is to reduce added sugars. If these are goals you have in your own life, try making this Strawberry Mint Water! Fruit infused water is a great way to support water intake. It also is a way to add flavor to a beverage without increasing the added sugar in our diets.

Tip: try making fruit infused water with other fruits. You can use around a cup of fruit per gallon of water and adjust to your preference. The longer you let this beverage chill in the refrigerator, the more flavor it will have.
