Is it just me, or does everyone feel like they get sick more easily during the winter? How do we combat the inevitable winter cold or flu? We have all been told to increase our fluid intake when we have a cold, so why not increase our fluid intake as a preventative measure?
Firstly, nothing makes increasing your fluid intake more appealing than drinking out of a water bottle that you love. With all of the terrible chemicals that go into making many plastic water bottles, I did a lot of research and decided to purchase a Hydro Flask.
For more recipes and tips from Mimi & Vera on Hydro Flask and drinking more fluid; see Hydro Flasks and Water Infusions - Recipes for Orange, Cinnamon and Vanilla Bean - Pear, Pomegranate and Clove Water.
