Drink your water. I don’t care how much you hate it. It’s about time we took water back from the greedy, water-mongering, thirst traps called almonds.
But you say, “Calllleeeeeee, ugh. I hate the taste of water. I can’t.”
Choke it down. Do it for the Earth. Do it for your country. Do it for California. But, I mean, do it for your body, too. We can’t let the almond overlords win, right? Right.
According to the Mayo Clinic (mmm, mayo), water has a multitude of benefits including but not limited to helping all functions of your vital organs. Every bodily system we have depends on water. Water helps support cell health, as well as move along the flushing of toxins from your sweet, sweet body system.
Our bodies are made up of 60% water. Earth’s surface is made up of 71% water. Water is essential. We need it. We just may not be getting the sufficient amount, because unlike breathing, drinking water is a choice. But we should all be trying to get at least two to three liters of water through our system a day.
One helpful way to check to see if you’re getting enough water is to check the color of your pee. So look back at it, girls. We all do anyway, right? Your pee should be clear to light yellow in tone. So cute.
One thing that makes it easier to get a sufficient amount of water is making drinking fun—or, in other words, make drinking water less like drinking water. The people at Clean Bottle generously sent me a new square water bottle that boasts a charcoal filter to purify the water, a small basket-like attachment to fill with fruit, and a square shape which I quickly learned comes in super handy when you’re clumsy like mahself and drop it. I’ve carelessly dropped the bottle on multiple occasions because apparently I have a lazy grip on not only life, but objects, as well. It won’t roll away from me, though, which I love. It’s my little hydrated pet that stays.
Anyway, here’s a fun water recipe that I use in the bottle to make sure I’m hydrated and winning against the almond masterminds. It's perfect for those of you who hate water, but still love living your best life. Together we will prevail.
- ½ lemon, cut further in half to fit in the fruit chamber
- 4 slices of cucumber, chopped
- 3 slices of watermelon, chopped
Easy, right? Enjoy! (And you really will, even if you don't like drinking water!)
- Do you like drinking water?
- Have you tried these square bottles before?
