I love adding things to my water, beautiful foods adorn the glass and make it more desirable to drink, gives it a better taste and helps me to drink more – getting the necessary and recommended amount.  While searching for the net I ran across the below Water Detox that I plan to try this week; not because it’s a detox but simply because it is beautiful and I like each of the ingredients that will added.  Being a detox is an additional benefit.  It should be a refreshing water week.
