We squeeze fresh lemon juice into our water bottle and enjoy lemon water all day long. It not only tastes good; it gives us a big hit of vitamin C.
THE NIBBLE kitchen enables us to squeeze fresh lemon juice. But if your workplace doesn’t afford that luxury and you drink lots of water, bring extra bottles filled only with 1/4 to 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. The almost-empty bottles don’t weigh much, and you can fill them with tap water when you get to work.
Keep lemon juice at work if there’s a fridge. Italian Volcano Lemon Burst is the only bottled lemon juice we use. It doesn’t have that “reconstituted” taste because it isn’t reconstituted—it’s real organic lemon juice and tastes like fresh-squeezed.
True Lemon is a powdered option that requires no refrigeration. It comes in tiny packets like artificial sweetener and has an excellent flavor.
Another option needing no fridge: lemon extract. Find it in the supermarket with the other extracts and add a few drops to your water bottle. (We use a medicine dropper to do this neatly.)
Try lime water, too!
