Summer is coming and, with it, high temperatures! Sun is nice, beaches are better in summer but… our body needs extra care to deal with this season! High temperatures test our body daily so it is essential to maintain good hydration. In this blog, we will learn about some rich, flavored, and low-calorie ways to stay hydrated without having to consume only water. Of course, we cannot rule out water, since the alternatives that we will discuss here must be complementary to this key element in our nutrition.
In the summer season, it is necessary to drink constantly throughout the day, without feeling thirsty. We must drink to keep our body always hydrated, so, drink! But don’t just think of water, think of cold soups (made them with vegetables, containing, for example, zucchini, cucumber …) or gazpachos, delicious ways to take care of our body while maintaining a healthy, low-calorie diet. Get your blender in shape, because you will need it!
Homemade slushies are also good allies for the summer season. In this case, we must use fruits with large amounts of water, such as melon, watermelon, pineapple, strawberry … thus, while we are keeping our body “cool”, we are also eating healthy fruits that provide us with large amounts of vitamins.
There are other, somewhat more sophisticated ways to hydrate our body, such as ‘cold press’ which, in addition to providing us with part of our daily fruit intake, provide us with vitamins and minerals. Remember that at Greenvita we are experts in ‘cold press’! Why not a visit to Greenvita for one of them?
Finally, infusions with ice, another rich and healthy way to relieve that unbearable heat that, surely, we will soon be suffering.
Ready? Summer is coming!
