  • Apple Juice Without The Extra Sugars

    If you are a parent, there is nothing you desire more than your child having the best life possible. In fact, your child’s happiness probably comes way before your own. However, many parents are unaware that so many products marketed towards children are filled with unhealthy added sugars, especially things that might seem healthy at a first glance. One such product are fruit juices. While there are certainly a number of companies who make their juice blends from actual juice, the majority add sweeteners and extra sugar to make their products more appealing to our children. Instead of buying your children these sugary drinks, why not start flavoring water with a Define Bottle?

    Flavor Water With Fruit

    Apple juice is a favorite choice for many children because the fruit is naturally very sweet. However, because we know now that excess sugar can lead to childhood obesity, a much healthier alternative is to make fruit flavored water. Red Delicious apples are quite sweet naturally, and slicing up some of these apples is a great way to flavor water. Another great apple to use to make fruit flavored water is the  Gala apple which is native to New Zealand. However, because these apples have to travel great distances, they will not always taste as sweet as the Red Delicious.

    Infused Fruit Water Bottles

    The Define Bottle is a perfect accessory for any parent. In addition to being able to make fruit flavored water that your kids will love, they will also save you money over time. Instead of purchasing bottle after bottle of sugary fruit juices, you can buy fresh fruit at a fraction of the cost.

  • Replacing Sugary Beverages with Flavored Water Alternatives

    One difficulty many people have with giving up their favorite sodas and other sugar-filled beverages is that they miss the flavors of their chosen beverage. However, with the Define Bottle, it is actually very simple to replicate the taste of your favorite drink without all of the calories and unnecessary sweeteners. And when you consider the primary flavors in many of the most popular soft drinks in the United States, they are fruit based which means you can create your own version of fruit flavored water using your Define Bottle.

    Flavoring Water Is Easy With Define Bottle

    Cherry & Lime are the primary ingredients in one of the flagship sodas available from Sonic Drive-In, and replicating the the taste of this drink by flavoring water is incredibly simple. While you may have to adjust the recipe for your own tastebuds depending on how strong of a taste you want, the basis is simply combining slices of each fruit. Start with a handful of cherries and a large lime wedge and modify the recipe by adding more or less of each ingredient until you find the right mix of flavors. Also, the longer you leave your water infused with fruit in your Define Bottle, the stronger the flavor will be. If you’re looking for a more delicate flavor, slice the fruits fresh each time. If you are looking for rich flavors, slice your fruits at night and let your fruit infused Define Bottle sit in the refrigerator overnight.

    With the Define Bottle, you can make an endless amount of flavor combinations that can help you say goodbye to sugary sodas forever. Not only will you be greatly reducing your sugar intake, you will have a healthier alternative for your cravings. Order a Define Bottle today and start drinking fruit flavored water instead of soda!
  • 4 Kid Friendly Fruit Combinations for the Define Bottle

    It’s not always easy to get kids to make healthy choices when it comes to what they eat and drink. During the summer, it’s even more important to make sure kids are getting proper hydration without reaching for that can of soda pop in the fridge. Preparing water infused with fruit provides kids with healthy and delicious options to grab when they’re thirsty. But not every kid is going to want their infused water to have tomatoes, cucumbers, or even grapefruit. That’s why we have these kid friendly options for you to try out on your little one.


    Strawberry and Lemon

    What little kid can pass up on strawberry lemonade? This healthy take on this classic drink provides kids the flavor they love without all the sugar and additives. Or, instead of using lemon consider using oranges. For a stronger flavor, muddle or crush the fruit when you place it in the Define bottle for water infused with amazing fruit flavor.

     

    Apple and Cinnamon

    This simple combination can be created with your child’s favorite type of apple. Slice it up and toss it in the Define bottle with a cinnamon stick for a superbly refreshing water infused with fruit.


    Peach and Watermelon

    If you child cannot get enough watermelon during the summer try tossing it into their Define bottle. Light and refreshing watermelon paired with decadent slices of peach will have your child running back to you begging for more.


    Berries Galore

    This is a combination any kid can help create and preparing water infused with fruit is half the fun. Offer kids a variety of washed berries and let them fill up their Define bottle with the proportions of raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries that they want for the day.

  • Plant Your Garden with Your Define Bottle in Mind

    With so many ways to flavor water and all the beautiful, fresh produce hitting the shelves this spring, you can’t help but be inspired. Why spend all the money at the store when you can put the work into your backyard garden and reap the rewards?


    Planting your garden with your Define bottle in mind is one way to enjoy the benefits and creativity of flavored water throughout the gardening season. Try these approaches to planning your garden for ways to flavor water in your Define bottle in mind while you plant.

     

    The Herb Garden

    Planting an extensive herb garden chocked full of basil, rosemary, and mint is perfect for providing ways to flavor water. Whether you use the herbs in conjunction with other fruits and veggies or by themselves, you can’t go wrong. If the plants are potted and brought inside during the winter, several different varietals can last all year long. However, make sure that you pot mint by itself because it will take over other plants very easily.

     

    Vegetables Galore

    In previous posts, we provide a variety of ways that vegetables can be used to flavor water and provide savory results. Planting options like bell peppers, cucumber, and tomatoes will provide scrumptious options in the late summer, into the fall for ways to flavor water in your Define bottle.


    Fruit Every Year

    We love fruit with the Define bottle! Planning your garden to have fruit throughout multiple seasons will provide you with many ways to flavor your water. Planting strawberries, raspberry bushes, watermelon, and cantaloupe will make sure you have fruit options from spring all the way until the first frosts. The best part is that strawberries and raspberries will come back year after year stronger than before.


    No matter what you plan to plant this year, keep your Define water bottle in mind so you have fresh, delicious water all season long.

  • Concerned About Pesticides? Here are 5 Things to do for Your Infused Water.

    orange, lemon, and lime slices

    When using your Define bottle to create fresh fruit water, you may have some concerns about the produce that you place into the water. With all the talk of contaminants and pesticides that find their way onto grocery store produce, it’s no wonder you’re hesitant to infuse your water. Pesticides and other contaminants that find their way onto produce can cause a slew of health problems including disruption of the thyroid and even cancer through long-term consumption.

    When you are able to prevent these issues, shouldn’t you?


    Because drinking fresh fruit water from your Define bottle is fun and healthy, there are several ways in which to prevent toxicity exposure from pesticides when you enjoy fruit infused water. Take a look at the variety of ways in which we believe you can best enjoy your fresh fruit water, while keeping your health at the forefront of your mind.

    Buy Organic

    When you purchase organic produce that is examined by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and certified organic, you are choosing foods that are guaranteed to be free of genetic modification, chemical pesticides, and other additives. The USDA has an extensive list of rules and regulations that pertain to gaining the USDA organic seal of approval. With some foods, 30 percent can be non-organic ingredients but this is not the case with fresh produce; to be certified organic, produce must be pesticide free. Just give your organic produce a good rinse to clear off any remaining dirt and they’ll be perfect for fresh fruit water.

     

    Use Produce with Rinds

    Choosing produce that has rinds or other thick outer layers that can be removed before use is another option for the Define bottle and fresh fruit water. Citrus, watermelon, and mango are some examples of fruits that would be excellent options for fresh fruit water. Though many recipes will advise you to slice these products and leave the rind on, if you are concerned about residues and pesticides, consider removing the rind prior to use. This guarantees that none of the residues and pesticides end up in your water.


    Wash Your Produce

    This should go without saying, but it’s important to wash any produce before consuming it as well as before placing in your Define water bottle.  Along with rinsing your produce, there are a variety of products on the market that will allow you to thoroughly clean them without leaving any toxic residue for you to consume.


    Use Filtered Water

    In some places across the country, the tap water is excellent; in others, not so much. Instead of guessing about what’s in your water, use filtered water when making your fresh fruit water in you Define bottle. This will help make sure you’re getting only the best possible ingredients in your healthy drink.

     

    Buy Local

    Much like buying organic, buying local can really help with the reduction of pesticides or contaminants on your produce. Shopping at farms where you can ask the grower about their farming processes and know where your food was grown can help in keeping your fresh fruit water free and clear.


    There are many options to ensure that what you add to your Define water bottle is fresh, clean, and pesticide or residue free!
