Our homestead is very old farm land and we have well water so we have no idea what is in the water as far as pesticides and contaminants. We have a reverse osmosis filter system for our drinking water from the kitchen faucet and the refrigerator (ice maker and water spout) so I know our water is safe. If you don't have an RO system you can buy bottled water or a filtered pitcher. So from the tap it goes and into a regular old glass and it sits and we forget whose water glass is whose. It's so un-fun.
To solve our dilemma I bought my mom and I some cute cups at the store the other day. They have straws which I think makes it fun and if you like to put lemon in your water (which we occasionally do) then it helps protect your teeth. We've since been drinking our water like good little girls. I had a "$10 off next shopping trip" coupon, too, so that made it seem like an even better idea!
Remember 8 - 8 oz. glasses of water a day! (Milk and juices count, too!) Portion control! And today's tip: Don't eat after dinner! Drink water! I know...a fairly simple tip, but helps so much!
