In this heat it’s important to stay hydrated. Water can get boring after awhile. To perk it up a bit add cucumber, orange slices, basil or mint. This simple solution is tasty & quite impressive in a glass pitcher. I serve this at my house in the summer & it’s an easy way to impress your family & guests.
If you feel that you are plenty hydrated but are still lagging, it’s quite possible that you are lacking electrolytes. Make sure you are getting enough minerals with your water. For a quick homemade electrolyte drink add some citrus, sugar & salt to your water! The amount you put in is up to your individual taste. It’s a fun experiment, tastes better than the commercial product without the preservatives & toxic color additives.
Enjoy the summer & stay healthy!
