Frequently Asked Questions
Do I Have To Use Organic Produce?
In my opinion, if you can, yes!
You wouldn't want to use non-organic fruit that's been sprayed with pesticides soaking in water that you are going to drink.
What's Wrong With Using Tap Water?
The quality of water I use is so important to me, I have a 4-gallon Berkey water filter that I use to make sure the water I drink and cook with is clean and pure.
I use it for everything water-related such as:
- drinking water
- coffee (husband!)
- to make nut milk
- boiling pasta water
- to clean produce
- soaking nuts + seeds
- essential oil diffuser
- pet water bowl
- coffee enemas
- any other reason you would need clean water
There are several toxins that are present in tap water that you want to avoid, especially if you are trying to follow a non-toxic lifestyle.
Can't I Just Buy Fruit-Flavored Water From The Store?
I do not recommend doing this as a healthy option because of the ingredients that are commonly used.
Here's the ingredient list for a popular store-bought berry flavored water beverage:
- S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) Propel Electrolyte Water Beverage Berry Ingredients: Water, Citric Acid, Sodium Hexametaphosphate (To Protect Flavor), Natural Flavor, Salt, Potassium Sorbate (Preserves Freshness), Potassium Citrate, Sodium Citrate, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamix C), Sucralose, Acesulfame Potassium, Calcium Disodium EDTA (To Protect Flavor), Calcium Pantothenate (Vitamix B5), Niacinamide (Vitamix B3), Vitamin E Acetate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6).
You don't know the source of the water that's being used and there are no real fruit ingredients - just "natural flavors". In addition, it contains multiple preservatives and synthetic vitamins.
My recipe contains real fruit and you can control the quality of water and berries that are used.
