And that can be a challenge if you don’t feel like carrying a gallon jug around with you all day – or if you find the taste of water to be a bit…well, blah. Well, today’s guest had some ideas that are going to change your mind. Miranda Ochocki loves to infuse water with items that give that blah H2O a boost, making you more likely to drink it and the seven other glasses of water we’re supposed to be drinking every day.
