Staying hydrated is an important part of caring for and overall health. Drinking plenty of water is obviously the best way to keep a healthy hydration level, but sometimes plain water can get, well, boring.
It's easy to understand why people often turn to sugary drinks and sodas instead of water, but sugary drinks are an empty source of calories that provide little nutrition and contain lots of sugar and even sodium at times—not the healthiest option.
Instead of soda, reach for a sparkling water. The bubbles make it a little more fun than plain water, and you can flavor it with any fruit or herbs that you like! Just make sure to read your nutrition labels. Some sparkling waters contain sodium, so look for sodium-free and unsweetened versions.
Or, you can whip one up at home. This strawberry basil sparkler is one of my favorite combinations for jazzing up a drink. Fresh strawberries add a natural sweetness while basil lends a bit of an earthy flavor that compliments that of the strawberries. It's a great drink to reach for when you want a little more fun and flavor without all the sugar and calories.
- 4 strawberries, sliced

Ingredient Variations and Substitutions
