I love infused water.  Whether it’s just a slice of lemon or something a little more elaborate, adding flavor to water can be smart and tasty.  On a daily basis I know I should be drinking more water so when I came across this recipe, I was a happy girl.  It has lots of high powered ingredients along with providing several health benefits.
