Avoid Flavored Waters – Keep It Real

Flavored water is marketed as healthy, but it’s filled with unhealthy chemicals, and calories.

Many people admit that they just don’t like the taste of plain water and have a hard time drinking enough water every day. They admit that the flavored waters just taste better.

Plus, advertisements recommend flavored water over plain water because the bottled “flavored waters” taste much better and they try to convince you that flavored water is just as healthy.

It’s time to ask yourself why you can’t be satisfied drinking pure, plain water – water is what your body is made of and you must have water to survive.

 Nature’s Water

Pure spring water is what all animals drink – every day, all day – to stay alive. Birds, elk, horses, frogs and turtles. You don’t give your dog or cat processed flavored water, colas, alcohol, or tea, so why do you feel that YOU need a chemical water to be healthy and happy?


Are you watching those calories? Well, which water choice has the fewest calories?  Pure, spring water, of course.

Get Chemical Water Out Of Schools

When junk foods are taken out of public schools, kids find a way to get them, like junk-food junkies.

Let’s teach our children to return to natural eating and drinking, If we have any hope of raising a healthy “new generation,” start with teaching them the #1 basic health tool – drinking plenty of pure water every day.

Starting in 2013, as many as 44 percent of US school districts had started banning junk food and colas, from vending machines found in school hallways, gym locker rooms, and cafeterias. Believing that by eliminating unhealthy choices, they’d encourage kids to eat better.

But, they found that banning the vending machines wasn’t the solution to kids choosing healthier foods and drinks, and this wasn’t curbing childhood obesity after all.

Actually, it appeared to actually worsen the situation. Instead of promoting healthy choices, researchers found that it resulted in an increased consumption of fast food.

Kids were bolting like junkies to fast food joints before and after school.

Researchers, from the University of Illinois, found that solely banning vending machines without taking any subsequent measures did not help students make healthier food choices. If the schools don’t have the common snacks or sodas, students found another way to purchase their favorite items.

Flavored Water For Toddlers

Teach your toddler to drink only water.

Many parents ask me how they can get their toddler to drink more water.

Water is crucial to a child’s health. It hydrates them, helps regulate their body temperature, and helps prevent constipation and urinary tract infections – all without adding calories, chemicals, or sugar to their diet.

But what if your child doesn’t like water?

I say that this isn’t possible if all they are given is water. If a child is raised from the beginning of life to drink pure water, and never had a sip of a sugary, man-made drink, then water is all they’ll crave.

For all adults, children, and pets, always leave a cup, a pitcher, or a glass bottle of water around so you, your child, and pets can access it anytime they get thirsty. If your child is thirsty, he/she has no choice but to drink the water.

Keep It Simple

Drink water, and keep it simple.

Drink real, natural, spring water all day, every day, and if you are trying to kick the cola habit and are jonesin’ for flavor in your water, you have many natural choices. Add lemon, lime, or real cranberry juice to your water, essential oils, and mints or herbs,

Here’s a tip we do at The Hullistic Network: add liquid peppermint flavored chlorophyll to bottled water. Chlorophyll is not only healthy for you, but the peppermint flavor tastes refreshing and leaves your breath smelling great. And chlorophyll balances body weight and your pH; chlorophyll is loaded in natural minerals and phytonutrients, and supports healthy blood.

Bottom’s Up!
