Staying super-hydrated is a challenge sometimes. Not everyone likes to drink water. It’s often unappealing on its own, but there are many ways to make it a better experience.
Frozen fruit pops are not a culinary revolution, but they are a simple reminder to get more liquid in every day, in refreshing ways.
These pear pops are a #GlowMoreDaily post of the week. And they kick off a series of very compelling reasons to hydrate yourself more and totally revolutionize your life!
To make Pear Ice Pops as my sister Nicole did:
Blend a few ripe pears with some honey in a high-powered bleder or food processor and add a teaspoon of honey for every three pears. Three pears filled a small mold of six ice pops.
Pour into your mold and freeze.
It’s simple… and it keeps the hydration flowing far more than, say, having veggie chips or dried fruit or nuts as snacks.
CUSTOMIZE & MAKE CUBES: You can make these year-round in a few minutes with plums and melons and grapes and pretty much any fruit you love. Freeze them in ice cube trays and pop them in water. It’s way easier than waiting for fruit to infuse overnight, especially if you like intense flavors.
Hydration is vital, and today, given I’ve been pretty intensely dehydrated since my heat has been on this winter, and I’m working intensely to load up on water, here are just a few of the reasons why we all MUST get and stay hydrated:
- You’ll glow with radiance. We need to be hydrated to be radiant and have our cells working properly. We are made of water and need water to be healthy. The standard supermodel tip in every 80’s magazine was “I drink two liters or more of water a day.” Simple.
- You’ll age less quickly. (!!!) Let’s say you have less water in your body but every organ needs water to function. What happens next? As it’s been explained, everything takes more effort in your body to just get through the day and you’ll age more rapidly. Drink up!!! (more HERE)
- You’ll have more energy. If you have less energy being expended for your everyday life functions, you’ll have more energy for life itself.
- You’ll amplify your intuition. Healers have said again and again that a properly hydrated body is more “tuned in” to good vibes. Tune in. Hydrate!
- You’ll have more overall wellness. The way to see this to be true is to try it.
And the list goes on and on and on.
Idea: Drink a little more and see how you feel. Then drink more…!
Aim for at least 8 cups a day… but that’s the least. If you work out, add extra as need. If you’re sitting in the heat, add more water. If you’re soaking in baths, add more water.
You get the picture: hydration is the key to so many facets of feeling and being fantastic.
