Hydrate, Hydrate and Hydrate
I used to have a friend who hated drinking plain water! Like haaaated it! Still makes me laugh when I think about it! haahah
I don’t actually know how one can possibly hate water but she did. The only thing she would drink was squash with water #sugaroverload or some rare times infused water.
I used to find it hilarious but also a bit dangerous. Though you can definitely get water from food (cucumber, pineapple,) or via herbal teas , there is nothing more refreshing and nourishing then Plain water.
60% of your body is made of water. So to say that we need it, is a bit of an understatement.
Water flushes the toxins out of your system, it helps in cognitive function, helps the kidneys do their job, helps with constipation and promotes weight loss.
Water can also be crap if the source isn’t the best. I used to drink tap water until I realised it was full of nasties and additives of all sorts. So I invested in a Water Filter and that was it. My water is clean and it cost me near nothing in the long run.
Now there are many ways how you can pimp your water and add some extra healing power to it!
Here are 2 of my favourite infused water
The Energising and Tasty One…Parsley,Lime and Blueberries
So besides tasting pretty yummy, this water will keep your breath fresh (thanks Parsley!), boost your immune system and help your digestive system run smoothly through the day
Some Benefits of Parsley: Full of Antioxidants and Immune Boosting Vitamin c, Helps Bloating, Combats Bad breath…
Some Benefits of Blueberries very similar to Parsley: High in Antioxidants, Relieve Digestion, Helps reduce Inflammation
Some Benefits of Lime: Rich in Vitamin C (not as much as Lemon) and helps with Weight Loss.
The refreshing one…Coriander and Cucumber
Cucumber is full of Water so essentially, you’re pimping your water with more water LOL! But what I like the most with Cucumber, it’s that fresh summer taste it has !
While Cucumber promotes a healthy skin and help alkaline your blood, Coriander is known to be a powerful food to remove metal toxicity in your body and regulate your blood pressure!
Plain or Infused, Stay Hydrated (especially post-booze sessions ;-))
