I will never forget when my cousin, who is also a nutritionist, asked me to track how much water I drank. It was the first time I did anything like that, and I was shocked when I reviewed the results. I thought I was drinking enough water, but it was far from it. Infusing my water helped increase my water intake!
I’ve learned that infusing Agua with your favorite fruits and spices is a game changer when it comes to flavor. Enjoy these ten recipes to get you started.

If you know anything about me, you know I love ginger and cinnamon. My grandma used to always make ginger and cinnamon tea because she believed it cured everything LOL!
