The Pursuit of Hydration

FullSizeRender-23

AQUA!  Summer feels right around the corner here in Boston and with the warmer temperatures it becomes more important than ever to ensure you are getting enough water.  Fortunately, I have never been a big soda drinker, so water has always been my drink of choice (unless we’re talking about wine – then I’m a Riesling girl all the way or I never turn down a good glass on Prosecco).  But not everyone relishes in a cold glass of water on a long summer day so below are simply a few options to making that h20 a little bit tastier and maybe more refreshing for you.

Something helpful to note: According to the powers that be, it is said that you should be drinking about half your body weight in ounces of water per day.  So, if you’re a 150-pound person, then you should be getting roughly 75 ounces of water a day.  So, drink up my friends!

TIP: Now, if you’re only an occasional drinker then what I find helpful is to slice up the below fruits / veggies, place them in a ziplock baggie and in the freezer.  They stay fresh longer and also become fun versions of ice cubes.
