Drinking water can be fun! I promise.
Most Americans don’t drink enough water and it’s even more important when we have a heat wave. The biggest reason people give is because they don’t like the taste of plain water. Yup, it can be boring. But, it can make the difference by reducing muscle aches, headaches, and giving you more energy. In weeks like this, it’s crucial.
So here’s the cure. My dear friend, Deb Dittner, wrote a great book called Body Balance that includes this recipe for a Healthy Electrolyte Drink. It’s written for hockey players who are looking for healthier ways to eat that are convenient, give them more energy, and don’t require much reading. Take away the hockey stick and the ice skates and this book is helpful for almost all of us.
Mix the following and chill before serving:
4 cups pure warm water
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp. honey
For even more variety, I’ve made this in a blender and added whatever fruit or berries I’ve got. I’ve even blended it up first and added frozen berries when I want to drink it right away. No need for chilling!
