Gone are the days when hydration was just a checkbox of 2 liters or 8 cups. Yes, water is a lifeline, making up more than half of our body mass and keeping dehydration, with its fatigue and foggy brains, at bay. But let’s go beyond the sips and explore hydration in more details – think water quality, the containers we use, and how it all syncs with our health rhythm. Plus, as a bonus to satisfy your thirst for knowledge and flavor, we’re adding a ‘Melon & Avocado Refreshing Hydration Smoothie’ that’s sure to make your taste buds and cells do a happy dance. Let’s dive in: hydration is about to get a whole lot more interesting – and delicious!
We’ve all heard the advice: drink at least 2 liters or 8 cups of water every day. We know it’s important because our bodies really need water to work well. If you check a smart scale, you’ll see that about 55-60% of our bodies are made of water. Even a little dehydration can lead to problems like feeling tired, struggling to concentrate, and getting headaches. If we ignore it for too long, it can cause serious health issues.
But in our busy lives, even though we carry water bottles everywhere, it’s still hard to drink enough water. Sometimes, water can taste a bit plain compared to sugary or other drinks alternatives (I can easily say, I’m often very guilty to prioritize coffee !). But what if there’s another way? A way that not only keeps us hydrated but also gives our bodies important stuff like nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and other natural plant compounds.
January is a month of new beginnings and often, healthier eating choices. For those of us with a sweet tooth, like myself, it’s challenging to find treats that satisfy those cravings without compromising our health goals. That’s where this delightful Lemon & Poppy Seeds Raw Plant-based Cheesecake comes in. It’s a perfect alternative for those who adore the creamy richness of traditional cheesecake but want to avoid the health pitfalls of high sugar content and processed ingredients.
Carbohydrates have often been unjustly vilified and misunderstood, bearing the blame for a range of health concerns, from weight gain to diabetes. To shed light on the reality behind these misconceptions, I had the opportunity to discuss carbohydrates with our Naturopathic Chef, Asmaa Lahlou. Here’s a summary of the valuable insights I gained from our conversation.
