    29 Products That'll Help You Eat More Plants And Drink More Water Every Day

    I dare you to tell me you didn't start craving fruit after reading this post.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An elegant-looking bedside carafe set in case you were depriving your body of a much-needed late night sip of water because you were already cozy in bed and didn't want to walk all the way to the kitchen.

    Amazon

    It's made of glass so be very careful when picking it up! It comes with a glass you can use as a cover throughout the night or day, and it's dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "Bought this for my nightstand. It holds enough water for a glass before I go to sleep, when I wake up, and then some! The glass is a bit thinner than I had anticipated, but as long as you're not the Hulk, you'll be fine with handling. I haven't had any problems with condensation, but the bottom fits nicely on a coaster should there be any concern. Looks cute, too!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.14.

    2. This time-marked water bottle to measure your daily water intake and motivate you to just keep on chuggin'. It's kinda like racing yourself to stay hydrated.

    amazon.com

    It's BPA-free, leakproof, and holds one gallon, so you won't have to keep refilling it (unless you drain the whole thing before the end of the day!).

    Promising review: "I love this bottle! It helps me stay on track of my water intake. I've tried using just a regular gallon water jug and give up. This lets me see the ounces and all. I would definitely recommend if you want a better visual to keep track of your water intake." —Susan Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in 11 colors).

    3. A set of tiny cookie cutters that'll certainly make fruit and veggie prep just a liiiittle more fun, especially if you're trying to get your kids to join you in eating more of nature's candy.

    amazon.com

    They're also dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "My 2-year-old is a VERY picky eater. I’m constantly stressing and worrying she isn’t getting enough nutrition in her diet due to lack of fruit and veggies, but it seems those days are over! The set consists of basic, but fun shapes. The cutters are sturdy. Cleaning can be a problem if you don’t wash or at least soak right after. As long as you have a good dish brush (wouldn’t use a sponge or cloth) you will be fine." —Heather

    Get a set of nine pieces from Amazon for $8.99.

    4. These hydration stickers you can peel off and stick on your planner — or any other surface you frequent daily — so you can fill in your daily water intake over the course of 14 weeks.

    amazon.com

    There are eight "water droplets" per day so you can color 'em in to make sure you get your daily eight glasses.

    Promising review: "These stickers are helpful reminders to drink enough water throughout your day. I used mine both on a refillable water bottle and on a flat desk planner and found I personally liked the water bottle method best. They peeled off okay with minimal residue from a metal bottle. Not sure how they would do with plastic, but probably fine. I liked the colors and it was easy to fill in the water droplet for each day. Minimal space taken up and only needing to change the sticker once a week was great. Three and a half months' worth of reminder stickers is very good for the price! I would recommend them if like me you need a little visual reminder to drink up." —Sweetheart Seer

    Get a pack of 14 stickers from Amazon for $6.95.

    5. A masticating juicer that's basically guaranteed to help you drink as many of your nutrients as possible.

    amazon.com

    The removable parts are dishwasher-safe, which makes for an easy cleanup.

    Promising review: "I have used this juicer for several days, it is a nice juicer and meets my needs. This juicer is easy to assemble and clean. It is also easy to operate. It brings so much convenience to my life and has changed my drinking habits. I brought bottled drinks before, now I can drink fresh juice. The price is reasonable and the quality is good. Worth trying it." —fishflag

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99.

    6. And this compact blender so you can start every day with a perfect fruit smoothie filled with as many fruits and veggies as your heart desires (just don't fill the blender past the safety fill line).

    amazon.com

    BTW, I bought this a few weeks ago because my old blender of eight years had lost its luster. This is much quieter than my previous blender and helped me whip up a yummy fruit smoothie quicker (even though I had used frozen strawberries and bananas). It's also compact enough to not take up a ton of counter space.

    Promising review: "If you’re having doubts about this blender, DONT! It’s small and compact, the cord wraps around the bottom, which is nice, and most of all, it blends amazingly! Just press the button and it starts. It’s not loud at all either. It's easy to clean as well and blends frozen food great! I had no problems making my smoothie with protein powder and multiple fruits as well. I'm very happy overall and the color is pretty as well. Great buy, especially if you have a small kitchen and just need a personal blender for smoothies, etc." —Kim

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in five colors).

    7. Or a portable personal blender if you don't have time to use and clean your blender at home but still want to honor your commitment to getting more fruit in your stomach.

    amazon.com

    That's right: the blender is part of the bottle! The blender can be charged using a USB cable (and can even be used while it's charging). And, the non-electric cup portion is dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I worked at a location where there is nothing but fast food. I also travel a lot for work and follow a strict diet, so this blender has been a real convenience for me! It’s easy to store in my bag and I can easily blend my shake wherever I am such as in the car, on the plane, or during my quick 10-minute meeting break! I get about 9-10 uses off of one full charge. It blends for approximately 20 seconds at a time, so there's no need to hold the button for it to work. It does come with an ice tray for small ice cubes to use but I have found the crush ice setting on my refrigerator seems to work too. You do have to cut your fruit into small pieces for it to blend well. I'm very happy with this product so far!" —Bella

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in four colors).

    8. These metal drinking straws so you can enjoy an ice cold cup of water no matter where you are — reviewers even say that the stainless steel keeps their drink chilled as it travels up the straw.

    amazon.com

    It also comes with two cleaning brushes, so you can keep one at home and take the other one on the go!

    Promising review: "These straws are thin enough to store anywhere — in a purse, a backpack, a glovebox (in the car) or even down into your sock when you are wearing sport shoes. I can even use one as a decoration in my hair when it's up in an old-fashioned bun. One thing that really grabs me is that the chill of a cold drink remains cold as it works its way up the straw and into my mouth. That does not happen with a plastic or paper straw. I LOVE THESE STRAWS. THEY ARE PERFECT. Oh, and they are pretty too." —Shanara Schmidt

    Get a set of eight from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in four color sets).

    9. Or an insulated tumbler with a straw that's so cute that you'll actually want to carry it around with you all day (and actually fill it with water to drink, obvs).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this because I work in a hot kitchen and health code says all beverages have to be in a closed container with a straw and kept under your work station. I'm the grill cook at a steakhouse, so my cup would have to go under a hot grill and next to an oven running at full blast (525°F) for eight hours. The first day I used it, I packed the cup with ice to the top and only added enough water to cover the ice, thinking that the ice would be gone within the first hour or so. I was wrong. I had to refill my cup a few times during the first half of my shift because the ice was not melting down. When I took my lunch hour I dumped most of the ice and filled my cup again. For the remaining four hours of my shift, my water stayed cold, and I could hear the ice clinking in the cup. The ice remained there for the rest of the night and some survived the next morning. My water stays ice cold all shift long. If I didn't know better, I'd call it witchcraft!" —B.H. Gonzalez

    Get a 24-oz. (that's Starbucks Venti-sized!) tumbler from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in nine sizes and 43 colors/designs).

    10. These electrolyte tablets with natural fruit flavors for anyone who thinks water just tastes a little bland and needs a little extra somethin', somethin'.

    Amazon

    It's compact enough to carry with you anywhere. The box comes with four tubes filled with 10 tablets of each flavor: lemon lime, tri-berry, citrus fruit, and orange.

    Promising review: "I was dying at a desert event, getting dehydrated. I drank lots of water but I didn't realize I needed more than that. I was exhausted and sick feeling. A friend gave me one of these to put in my water bottle and said to hold the resulting solution in your mouth for faster absorption before swallowing. Within an hour I was feeling better, and back to normal surprisingly fast. The moral is: You need more than water when you're exercising, especially in hot, dry climates." —Edward A.

    Get a box of four tubes from Amazon for $24.82.

    11. A watermelon slicer to turn a giant, hard-to-cut watermelon into perfectly-sized slices, in case you were turned off by just how much time and effort it takes to divvy one up.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    HOWEVER, you can *also* use it for slicing cantaloupe, honeydew, and pineapples. Plus, it's dishwasher safe.

    Promising review: "I love it! I'm so glad I finally bought this item. It makes cutting up watermelons so much easier and quicker! Saves on the mess and cleanup of cutting up a watermelon too! This one feels sturdy. I haven't had any issues with it at all, so far. I've used it about four or five times since I purchased it approximately a month ago. Even when I've used it on a small or large watermelon, it has cut with ease. I would definitely recommend this item to anyone thinking about purchasing one." —Lynn C.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    12. This banana bungee hanger that'll help keep bananas fresher for longer so they aren't totally rotten by the time you finally reach for one. Plus, keeping them literally hanging in front of your face every time might remind you to actually eat them every time you enter the kitchen.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this banana hanger because it is said hanging bananas slows their ripening. I have been using a big rubber band and hanging my bananas on a hook from the ceiling. Now I use this same hook on the ceiling to hang this banana holder and it looks kinda neat. And, I don't have to worry about it snapping the way my rubber bands eventually did. FYI, if you cut the bananas down and leave the uppermost portion of the stem attached to the bunch, the remaining stems will continue to hold onto the banana holder's beads when there is only one banana left on the bunch." —Bear

    Get it from Amazon for $9.94 (available in four colors).

    13. A veggie spiralizer to effortlessly turn zucchini (and other veggies) into "pasta" noodles for the low-carb spaghetti of your dreams.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My husband is a type 1 diabetic, and spiralized vegetables are great ways for us to enjoy rich pasta dishes without so many carbs. We've evolved from the hand-held Veggetti, which worked well with zucchini but didn't offer the range or versatility of the Spiralizer. This is the second counter-standing Spiralizer we've owned (the first one still slices splendidly, but I had misplaced some of the various blades) and both have been awesome! The company has made improvements to the new Spiralizer so it grips the countertop in a more stable way and does not slide as you're spiralizing. In addition, it comes with a container to help keep all of the blades organized, a tray with lid for the produce to fall into, better labeling of which blade is which, and is easy to clean. I highly recommend this spiralizer. Each dish has turned out beautifully and the Spiralizer has done an effortless job cutting the veggies just as desired." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97.

    14. This glass fruit-infusing water pitcher so you can prepare ~fancy~ fruit water in the morning and come back home at night to quench your thirst in a refreshingly delicious way.

    Amazon

    The pitcher can withstand temperatures from 0 degrees to 300 degrees and is BPA-free and dishwasher-safe. But wait! You can also infuse more than just fruit — it's also great for infusing herbs and spices (yup, you can brew your own fresh mint tea with hot water!).

    Promising review: "Since the teens have been home for the summer, they have been slurping down the soda. So, I put an end to that and stopped buying soda. We have been making fruit infused water to enjoy. We have made cucumber, lemon/lime, and lime/mango. The fruity water is all-natural, refreshing and of course, won't cause cavities! The pitcher works great — no dribbles. It is easy to clean and take apart. And, because it's glass, it is elegant enough to serve your guests." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    15. Or an infuser water bottle that'll also let you prepare your beloved fruit water but take it on the go so you can indulge in it throughout the day.

    amazon.com

    You fill the cylindrical sleeve with fruit, veggies, herbs, or whatever else you want to have your water infused with. A half-full sleeve is good for two to three infusions, so you'll still get that delicious flavor even when you refill your water bottle.

    Promising review: "I have had many water bottles, but this one is the best one for me!!!! It makes drinking water an utmost pleasure! The technology of the bottle is second to none on the market. I have not had one drop of water escape my bottle and that's huge for me. There is no leakage! I'm enjoying the benefits that the many fruits, veggies, herbs, etc. provide. I use a different recipe every day and concur that anything with strawberry and oranges is the best. Even mint! ENJOY yours as much as I enjoy mine." —Sharon G

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95+ (available in four colors).

    16. Or!!! Some bottles of Hint water (this one is infused with watermelon) for a subtle fruity flavor that requires no extra time in the morning whatsoever.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "I bought these for my grown daughter to get her to drink more water (and less soda!). I wasn’t sure she’d even drink them, I hadn’t tried Hint water myself. She loves them and wants more flavors! She said that watermelon hasn’t been a flavor she would buy herself because it usually has an artificial taste — but this is natural and delicious. The price is right on the watermelon flavor, too." —TM

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $15.98 (or browse all the flavors available on Amazon).

    17. This easy-to-use Aerogarden that'll help you effortlessly (and quickly) grow your own fruit and veggies at home thanks to the LED grow lights. You're going out of your way to grow your own tomatoes so it'd be such a shame for them to go to waste.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The Aerogarden comes with six herb pods for planting basil, parsley, dill, thyme, Thai basil, and Mint.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this product. I was skeptical at first, but the reviews were right, the plants grow quickly and take off. We bought the grow-your-own and planted jalapeños, tomatillos, bell pepper, and lettuce. All sprouted within a week, and are doing great. I can't wait for them to bear fruit! The herbs that came with the machine grew fantastic and the basil went crazy big and beautiful. I liked it so much I bought a second one. I would recommend this for anyone and I would gift this for anyone." —Sarah K

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in two styles and three colors).

    18. An apple corer and slicer because sometimes getting those perfect slices just takes so much time that it's easy to give up before you even get started. This baby will give you even, seed-free slices faster than you can say, "scrumdidlyumptious."

    Amazon

    It's also dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "My husband laughed at this purchase questioning why we needed another gadget. Well, he ate his words the first time he tried it! This is the BEST gadget you never knew you needed. It perfectly cores and slices apples with a minimum of effort. It’s the most used gadget in our kitchen (we love apples). Highly recommend." —CT C

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    19. This stainless-steel water filter you can attach to your kitchen sink to have purified tap water in what might honestly feel like the blink of an eye — and it produces eight cups of clean water per minute!!

    amazon.com

    Before purchasing, consult the photos in the product listing to make sure the filter is compatible with your type of faucet!

    Promising reviews: "I just installed this on my kitchen sink faucet. Installation was super easy. The water pressure is really good — not slow at all. I love the water spout idea. This should really help me drink more water without buying plastic water bottles. I’m super satisfied with this product." —Anthony Yi

    "This is the fourth brand of kitchen sink water filter I have owned, and it is my favorite. The all-metal look is attractive, especially when two of my previous painted plastic ones started losing their coating. It was very easy to install, and it has THE best water pressure output of any filter. The pressure is so good I have had it splash out of glasses and coffee pots because it is so concentrated, not at all sluggish. No chlorine smell or flavor. I bought two filters as back up and am happy that it will not need a replacement until 200 gallons versus some that only last 100 gallons." —W. Padgett

    Get it from Amazon for $51.98. You can also get a pack of two replacement filters for $20.98.

    20. Orrrrr this filtered water pitcher because you can easily fill it with water from your tap and stow it away in your refrigerator (it's slim enough to not take up too much space) and have clean, ice cold, refreshing water you may never want to stop drinking.

    Amazon

    The pitcher has a five-cup capacity and reviewers say that it takes about six minutes to filter the water. It has a built-in electronic filter indicator that'll let you know when your filter needs to be replaced (psst! Get a pack of three replacement filters for $14.99).

    Promising review: "I purchased this to leave in the refrigerator at my job — it's the perfect size for a workdays' worth of water and the slim design means it doesn't take up much room, leaving plenty of space for lunches. The fountain water is not trustworthy but I am comfortable knowing that my Brita filter is working to remove any harm before I drink it. I can taste a difference and that gives me some peace of mind. The handle is comfortable when lifting the full pitcher. Refilling is a breeze as the lid comes off and on easily. Replacing the filter is quick and painless, too. For the price, you can't go wrong" —misterie27

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in three colors).

    21. A bottle of coconut-flavored water infusion drops that might make you feel like you're drinking out of a real coconut on a ~tropical island~. Some bottled or canned coconut waters include added sugar, but these drops are free of artificial sweeteners and contain the naturally occurring electrolytes in coconuts, so you'll actually feel hydrated.

    instagram.com

    Promising review: "At first I thought this product was a bit expensive, but if I can get 30 servings out of it, as the label states, then I'll be satisfied. I love the taste, just a hint of sweetness — just right. The lo han fruit and stevia ingredients were a big draw for me, as I don't use regular white cane sugar. I also love the convenience of using the drops, making it easily portable. Replenishing electrolytes when drinking this helps me to feel that I'm doing something positive for my health." —Alex

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available as a pack of one or two). Plus, you can try the chocolate version of these drops for $20.99 as well.

    22. This genius-ly designed salad container because you're tired of opening your salad at work only to find that your lettuce and toppings have become totally soaked and soggy from the dressing (aka, unappetizing). This container comes with a divided tray to separate your toppings and hold your dressing so everything stays crisp and fresh until you're ready to mix 'em together.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I needed to get back into eating a salad for lunch every day at work but wanted something that would keep my mix-ins and dressing separate until lunchtime. This container fit the bill. The main compartment is large enough to hold a good amount of greens. The tray is divided to keep different mix-ins separate. The dressing container doesn't leak — a plus. My sliced almonds were a little damp from the moisture in the container — livable but not preferred. Overall though, I'm satisfied and it makes packing a more exciting salad possible!" —warriors

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in eight colors).

    23. This produce-saving container because it'll extend the life of the *expensive* fruits and veggies you just bought and don't want to go bad in two days. Longer-lasting produce = more time to eat it all.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    These containers help keep your produce fresh by keeping moisture away. And they're designed with a special vent filter, which you never have to replace, to regulate the carbon dioxide and oxygen flow to your produce.

    Promising review: "Oh my gosh, they work! I went on a 10-day trip and left my husband home with asparagus, strawberries, and spinach in the containers. He ate some of all of them, but there was plenty left when I got back, and everything was in perfect condition! I couldn’t believe it! These containers will save us a lot of money not throwing away food because we couldn’t get through it fast enough. (We shop at Costco and get large containers of produce.) These are TOTALLY worth getting!" —Elizabeth Walter

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $26.99, or individually for $6.69+.

    Natalie Brown, an editor here at BuzzFeed, actually tried these containers for herself, and, well, you just gotta read her full review to hear about how they kept her produce fresh for 10 days.

    24. A veggie chopper that'll give you perfect cucumber and pepper (and more!) slices in a few swift motions — perfect if you've been putting off adding more color to your plate because prep time is just so daunting.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This has seven different tops/cuts and I’m going to need to try them all. So far I’ve only sliced cucumbers and got shreds of carrots. If I had known how QUICK this was, I would’ve gotten one a LONG time ago. Saves so many times, especially since it’s so quick and easy to clean too. The large amount of storage all your veggies fall into is great too. This comes with a juicer too and I think it’s going to inspire me to start juicing because I love this thing so much." —Kc

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    25. Or this handy little knife sharpener because chopping up veggies by hand is so much easier and faster when your knives are sharpened to ~perfection~.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm very surprised by how well this product works. I make knives and sharpen my them with a wet stone or belt grinder, and sharpen my mom's and grandma's knives whenever I visit. I've tried to teach my mom to use a honing stick while I'm gone, but she can't seem to get the hang of it, so I decided to buy this product because of the simplicity of use. I tested it on a few of my dull knives at home, and it takes about 10 strokes on the coarse grind and 10 strokes on the fine grind to get a sharp enough edge to slice printer paper without tearing. I love how simple and how little time it takes to sharpen a knife enough for kitchen use. Now my mom and grandma can sharpen their knives whenever they need it. I highly recommend this product!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in three colors).

    P.S., Elizabeth, an editor here at BuzzFeed, tried this knife sharpener and said it totally transformed her knife collection. Read her review to learn more!

    26. An avocado-slicing tool that'll give you such perfect slices that you might start making avocado toast more often.

    Amazon

    The serrated blade lets you easily cut through an avocado without accidentally cutting yourself. The pitter's designed to remove even stubborn pits, without the risks of trying to aim a knife to hit it just so. And, the fan blade slicer removes the fruit from its skin while simultaneously cutting it into seven ~perfect~ slices.

    Promising review: "Avocado? Yes, please! This tool is awesome. It easily cuts open the fruit and the pit remover works well — just push onto the pit and give it a twist and the pit pops right out. The best part is the slicer. It makes beautiful slices for a great presentation. The tool can then be used to scrape any remaining fruit off of the skin. I'm really happy I bought this tool!" —NPR MAN

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    27. This ~flexitarian~ cookbook that helps you shift your plant intake — without *totally* cutting out meat — by giving you recipes you can easily adjust based on how many veggies you want to include.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I just got this and am so excited! Seriously, everything looks amazing and I can’t wait to try so many of these recipes. I’m happy that someone finally made a book for people who are, for the most part, just plant-eaters. I didn’t know there was a name for it! “Flexitarian.” I too, throw in meat a couple of times a week, but usually stay away from it. That’s the beauty of this book, you can easily adjust each recipe to be your way. They offer substitutions." —kassie

    Get a hardcover copy from Amazon for $14.99 (also available for the Kindle).

    28. A microwave steamer to give you perfectly cooked vegetables without leaving you with a ton of dishes to take care of.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I think that this steamer is a steal! For a low price, I now am able to steam my vegetables every day and it is a breeze! I can fit two whole heads of broccoli in here, four zucchini, or even a whole bag of green beans no problem. I would say that on average it takes 10 minutes for the vegetables to cook (considering that I like mine very soft). I love that I can steam so many vegetables at once, and it has increased my daily vegetable consumption. However, the steamer is large, so when it is in my small microwave, it has a hard time spinning a full 360 degrees. But I don't think that this problem has affected its ability to steam my vegetables. It is also hard to close the tabs sometimes, but this is only an irritant. If you need a way to steam your vegetables easily, don't hesitate to get this!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in three sizes).

    29. And these reusable ice-pop molds for a yummy, frozen way to consume more fruit and veg. The flavor combos are literally endless so you'll never get bored with your creations.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Awesome product. My toddler loves popsicles. I made her healthy berries and yogurt blend, then pour into these molds. It's quick to freeze down and easy to take out. She ate three pops in a row, which is great to me as it's healthy. Perfect for summer. I'm glad I bought these." —Magic Cinnamon

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in six colors).
