For some reason I've always had a hard time drinking enough water. I don't like the taste of it. When I tell people this they usually think I'm crazy because they say water doesn't have a "taste". I don't know what it is, but I taste something, and it's not something of preference to me.
I never drank water at all until I started running. Then I HAD to drink it. But it still wasn't enough. I know I needed to hydrate myself more so I was always looking for ways to do this. I tried flavored waters or flavor packs for waters. The problems were either a nasty aftertaste or the product was just chock full of artificial ingredients. Then I stumbled upon a product called True Lemon.
True Lemon is the flagship product of a company called True Citrus. It was created by a man named David Schleider - a professional chef. He was a lemon-lover and he wanted the taste of fresh lemon without having to cut up lemon wedges and take them on the go. That was time consuming, messy, and just inconvenient. He came up with a goal - create fresh-squeezed lemon taste that was 100% natural, 100% convenient, and 100% delicious. True Lemon was created.
I was given the opportunity to try some of this company's awesome products. I received a box of True Lemon, True Lime, True Grapefruit, True Orange, Raspberry Lemonade, and original Lemonade.
The first product I tried out was the original lemonade packets. I was super excited to try these and add a little flavor to my water. I was hoping for something that would excite my taste buds and actually get me wanting to drink water.
I brought the little packets of the True Lemon original lemonade packets with me to work and mixed it with my bottled water. I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. The taste was very natural. It wasn't overly sweet and didn't taste artificial at all. It didn't turn my water a funky color as most packets of flavoring do. My bottled water was devoured in a matter of minutes. Drinking water was going to be A LOT easier for me!
The next thing I tried (well my boyfriend tried the actually cooking) was using the lime packets as seasoning. He used a packet of True Lime to season some salmon we were going to be having one night. I was a bit skeptical on this one, but the turnout was delicious. The lime added perfect flavoring and the meal was wonderful!
Since then we've used the lime packets several times in cooking. We've added it to guacamole, shrimp, and chicken.
The orange packets are great sprinkled on vanilla ice cream - instant orange-sicle!!
I haven't tried the raspberry lemonade or the True Grapefruit yet, but I'm sure those will be just as amazing!
