The Rise of the Mason Jar

Summer has arrived and here in South Florida, that means the scorching temperatures, thickets of humidity and uncontrollable rain showers are back! It also means it’s probably a good idea to start drinking more water. Here lately, I’ve been drinking insane amounts of water thanks to my handy-dandy quart-sized mason jar – yes, Mason Jar! Sure, it might look a little tacky and if you know me, I am not a country type of gal but for some reason, this glass jar has encouraged me to stay hydrated throughout the day. Not only is drinking water a smart thing to do in the summer but there are a wealth of benefits, especially at the workplace. Did you know dehydration call kill your productivity? Here are three of my favorite fruit infused water recipes to help quench your thirst this and boost your overall productivity this summer:

  • 4 strawberries chopped, 1 sliced kiwi and 1/2 of a sliced cucumber
  • ½ sliced cucumber with 2 slices of lemon and 2 slices of orange
  • ½ sliced cucumber with 5 mint leaves

Place all the ingredients in the jar, then fill with water and enjoy!
