There's a reality when it comes to the average western consumer: They are chronically dehydrated! This dehydration doesn't just come from not drinking enough water. It comes from eating foods that are highly processed and refined.
Most fruits and vegetables are naturally very high in water content. The water in these foods bath the cells of our bodies with the thousands of nutrients and micronutrients they contain. When we limit them from our diet in favor of dead foods that are stripped of their natural water content, we contribute to our dehydrated state. Add to this the sodas, coffees, processed fruit drinks and smoothies, and we make the situation so much worse.
The solution, of course, is to:
- Include a large quantity of fresh fruits and veggies in our diet.
- Drink fresh, clean water throughout the day.
- Get rid of drinks filled with processed sugar and artificial ingredients.
- Get rid of or severely limit stimulant drinks (coffee, energy drinks).
Can Water Be Exciting?
Of course it can! When it comes to drinking water, let's face it, plain water can be rather boring and uninviting. But let's see what we can do to make it a much more exciting and mouth-watering experience.
