What You Need to Get Started

  1. Get yourself a great looking plastic or glass bottle that will hold your 64 ounces of water for the day. There are many great looking bottles available online and they can be purchased from $8 to $20.
  2. Choose between filtered water, bottled water you purchase, tap water, or sparkling water. Experiment between each type to see which one you like the best.
  3. Get together whichever fruits are seasonal. Some you may want to start with are: Strawberries, blueberries, watermelon, apples, lemons, and oranges. Cut into pieces or cubes to release the flavors.
  4. Figure out your favorite vegetables: carrots, peppers, celery, and cucumbers. Cut up the vegetables into pieces so they will provide flavor without breaking down.
  5. If you are going to add herbs, tear them into pieces so the flavor is ready to match up with your fruits or vegetables. Look for mint, basil, ginger, rosemary and any other items you enjoy.
