On Hydration: WATER

Well I simply can’t help but post this wonderful summary of the reasons to avoid the numerous sugary, artificially sweetened, not to mention colored, substitutes to the best, healthiest source of hydration: water. Remember how lucky we are to have access to it, and be aware of the detriments to your appetite and health–physical and mental, every time you feel tempted to grab a soda or a sports drink.

Eat fluids, drink veggies

This green frostie is full of fiber, vitamins C, K, and E, potassium, a bit of protein, and copper, and is also hydrating, refreshingly sour, and light. The color comes from blending 3 kiwis with 1/2 a cucumber. Instead of water ice, I used ice made from mango and papaya juice. The juices from the fruits and the cucumber are more than sufficient to create a frosty, delicious drink. Enjoy!
