Ways to Make Healthy More Interesting #StraussWaterBar

By  | Last Updated:  

Our Strauss Water Bar has been part of the family for a month now — and I can’t remember a time I’ve had so much water! It’s fantastic! Mike and Sam are both excellent water drinkers, so naturally they’re big fans already. I’ve been amazed at the difference it’s made in my daily water consumption. It also makes getting my tea a breeze. While the unit is large, the design is very sleek and fits in with our kitchen perfectly. I actually can’t imagine not having it now! 

Ways to Make Healthy Food More Interesting #StraussWaterBar

With the positive changes in my water consumption, the positive effects are spilling over in other ways. I’ve been creating infused waters, which are easy to make and super delicious.

Things to Add to Water

One of my favorite combos is sage leaves, orange slices and blueberries. I’ve also been satisfying my sweet tooth with healthier options. I’ve recently discovered broiled grapefruit. It’s the perfect spring and summer snack option! 

How to Broil Grapefruit

Broiled Grapefruit

  1. Slice the grapefruits in half. I usually have to slice of the bottom of the fruit so that they don’t wobble. Also, you may want to cut around the edges of the fruit where it meets the rind. This makes it a little easier to remove the segments with a spoon while you eat. It’s usually not a big problem, but it helps.
  2. You may like to broil them plain or with 2 tbsp. of maple syrup drizzled on top.
  3. Place under broiler for about 5 minutes. Try not to let the rind burn too much.
  4. Allow to cool for a minute.
  5. Then, drizzle more maple syrup or honey on top and enjoy while it’s still warm.
