I was inspired to make this kiwi cooler after I read all about Lisa Faulkner who has been launching the 'Better with BRITA' campaign highlighting how she uses BRITA filtered water as an ingredient in cooking for the best tasting food and drink. Lisa has created many recipes using the BRITA filtered water such as Potato and kale curry, Tropical punch, English elderflower drink and even children friendly recipes such as risotto and pizza.

Nutritional experts recommend drinking around 1.5 litres of water every day. However, it's not just the volume of water that is important; the quality of the water also has a significant effect on your health and well-being. Tap water differs from region to region, it can contain many impurities and unpleasant substances affecting the taste of it. The patented BRITA technology has produced the BRITA filter Jug that reduces unpleasant and unwanted substances, such as limescale, metals or chlorine to give you clean refreshing water be it for drinking or cooking with.



The Brita Marella jug has a clean look, it comes in 6 amazing colours to compliment any kitchen and it is perfect to store in the fridge and can be taken straight to table. The jug is simple to use and clean and it comes with a built in indicator in the lid that lets you know when the filter needs changing. The jug retails at 
£ 21.00 and is available to purchase on line and at most major retail stores. For details of BRITA products go to www.brita.co.uk
I would like to thank BRITA for sending me the beautiful mint jug featured in this post. It matches my kitchen colour scheme perfectly. The views and opinions expressed in this post are my own own. 

The lovely people at BRITA have been extremely generous and have agreed to send one simply.food reader a Jug so that they too can enjoy clean refreshing water.
