Nutritious Water Additives?

Are there any good nutritional/metabolic water mixes out there for sedentary desk workers who are perhaps over-reliant on fast food?

I consume several bottles of water a day at work. Normally I use Propel mix in the water, since it only has 20 calories per serving and it makes the decidedly plasticky water more drinkable. My diet is probably a little more reliant on fast food than it should be, especially with the economic crunch lately, and I was wondering if there is anything on the market to mix in the water to help me with nutrition or metabolism. I'm working two jobs, which means on 3 weekdays I work straight from 8AM to 9:30PM with just a lunch break. This also predictably lowers my will for exercise.
I know that there are lots of snake-oil products out there on the market, but I'm curious if there's anything to help me along health-wise without jamming in too many calories. I certainly don't feel ill, but I know my lifestyle isn't necessarily optimal and I'm wondering if I'm missing an opportunity with all the water I'm taking in.
