We all know we need to drink plenty water in summer, but I've heard so many people say they hate the taste of plain water and so they fall back in the evil web of drinking the OH SO BAD FOR YOU fizzy drinks and, packed with sugar, juices.
Here's some tasty ways of staying hydrated this summer whilst keeping that body pure and detoxed... this means less cellulite! Got you interested didn't I ;-)
1) Start early
Get into a routine of starting your day off with a good gulp of hydration. Have a mug with hot water and squeeze in some fresh lemon juice. lemon is filled with Vitamin C and adds that bit of flavour to the water. This mix will help flush out your system and start you off healthy and hydrated.
2) Add natural flavour to your water
You can strawberries, berries, cucumber, lime...the list is endless. It also makes for great decoration at the dinner table in a large glass jug filled with ice. Or you could make herbal tea, let it cool and you have your own natural iced tea.
3) Have a Veggie juice!
It's not only super refreshing but also packed with vitamins , fibre and minerals.
4) For Kiddies or Stubborn Husbands
Kids love juice, try mixing half a glass of juice with cold water to make a thirst quenching cooler. This trick works best with Cherry juice, Pomegranate and apple juice. Take a 500ml glass fill it with half of one of the juice flavours and the rest with ice cold water....it's so yummy and refreshing. The best part is no one would ever guess you mixed in half a glass of cold water. Trust me I got my hubby hooked ;-)
5) Make a Green Smoothie
It's packed with enzymes, rich in raw fruit and vegetables.
This is how you make it:
1.5 cups of water
1x lettuce chopped
3 stalks of celery
1 apple chopped
1 pear chopped
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Combine the above in a blender and enjoy.... even better with friends!
Stay healthy, Happy and Hydrated this Summer.
