You probably already know that it’s important to drink enough water. A minimum of eight glasses of water a day is recommended. You should aim for more if it is really hot, or you are working out and sweating a lot.

Getting enough water in your body will prevent you from getting dehydrated.

Water keeps you alive, gives you proper hydration, and gives life to all your body functions.

Now plain water can get boring. Here’s a tip to liven it up

Take a glass, squeeze half of a fresh lemon (lime can also be added or substituted), add one small slice of cucumber (peel off if it is waxed or non organic), add a few drops of Stevia. Fill with water and ice.

The cucumber/ lemon combo is extremely refreshing and really adds to the flavor of the water. The Stevia ( )add that “lemonade” feel to the drink.

This is very healthy and refreshing. I make entire pitchers of this and let it sit in my fridge, ready to be used.

Stay hydrated, stay healthy!!!
