The Pursuit of Hydration


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.




Apples Iron
Blueberries Antioxidants
Grapefruit Flushes out toxins
Lemons Jumpstart your digestive system
Raspberries Fiber
Strawberries Antioxidants
Watermelon Loaded with vitamins


Slice, dice, mix ‘em up, sip and enjoy!
