I’ve been trying to drink a lot more water during this pregnancy so when Soma reached out about letting me try one of their gorgeous, modern water-filtering carafes, I jumped at the chance. I’ve been so nauseated my entire pregnancy that any funny taste in my water just about sets me over the edge (I guess I should just feel lucky that my other pregnancies have been really easy, right?). The idea of super-filtered, super clean water that didn’t come from a plastic bottle sounded amazing to me.
A few things I appreciated right away about my Soma: The filter works fast (unlike other water filter systems I’ve used in the past). Soma’s bio-degradable filters are made from coconut shells and plant resin, so I never have any of those black charcoal flakes floating around in my water. Also, the beautiful shatter-resistant glass carafe keeps the water ice-cold, and looks gorgeous in my fridge and on my dinner table.
Soma delivers a new filter to your door every 60 days, so you never have to remember to buy a new one. The filter has been third-party tested to reduce chlorine, lead, selenium and arsenic in water. It tastes amazingly crisp and clean. I LOVE this water on its own, but I’m working on kicking a diet soda habit, so sometimes I feel like drinking something with a little flavor added.
Recently I’ve been making citrus mint ice cubes that make it easy to choose water over soda. The ice cubes are so simple to make and I love that I’m not cutting into a new lemon every time I want a little juice in my water. I use a hand-held juicer to juice a few lemons or limes and then add one mint leaf per cube.
Thank you to Soma for sponsoring this post!
