Healthy tip #1 is regarding the beverages you are consuming! Start your day with a tall glass of water, as soon as your feet touch the ground. We often are dehydrated upon waking, so to nip this in the bud right off the hop…..start sipping on some good ol’ H2O! You can add lemon or lime to add a burst of flavour!
When we get busy with our day we often forget to drink enough water, as we often opt for coffee, tea, pop, eggnog, or in the case of the holidays…..alcohol. Remember that water is the #1 BEST beverage for you. All the others contain caffeine, chemicals, sugar, artificial sweeteners and alcohol. All of these are fine in small amounts, but water is pure and calorie free. Consuming it as herbal tea is also an option. How do you know if you have consumed enough? A general guide is take how much you weigh in pounds, divide that in half, and drink that amount in ounces. And remember, your urine should be pale yellow and odour-free…..another easy indicator you can use.
