Sometimes Water Just Doesn’t Cut It. . .

simple rehydration

Sometimes when you are trying to rehydrate, water just doesn’t cut it so, on the home front, we have been looking into some homemade alternatives to store bought sports drinks (which contain all sorts of things you don’t want to put in your body) to help with rehydration.  I found the following recipe from Mother Nature Network.  It is called The Super Simple Electrolyte Drink , and since I’m all about simple I thought I’d give it a go.

The Super Simple Electrolyte Drink
(see the original post Here )

1/2 Cup Orange Juice (I used store bought 100% juice)
1/4 Cup Lemon Juice (I squeezed my own and let me tell you when you squeeze a few lemons you find all sorts of little cuts and scrapes on your hands you didn’t even know you had. Ouch.  And be careful you don’t get seeds in your drink)
2 Cups of filtered Water
2 TBSP of RAW Honey
1/8 TSP Unrefined Salt (I used sea salt)

I made a double batch on Friday and it was gone by late Sunday afternoon.  The babe loved it and went looking for it Sunday evening only to open the fridge and find the bottle missing.  He looked up at me with a very disappointed little face and said “Juice All Gone? Go store?” I will be making another batch this evening and we will stick with this recipe until the orange juice runs out, then we will try and share a new recipe.  Happy Hydrating! (And feel free to share your hydrating recipes)

  1. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform
    you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a
    tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely
    unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but
    I had to ask!

  2. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative
    and interesting, and without a doubt, you have
    hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.

    Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my
    search for something regarding this.

  3. Hi there outstanding website! Does running a blog like this take a massive amount work?

    I have virtually no expertise in coding but I had been hoping to start my
    own blog soon. Anyways, if you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners
    please share. I understand this is off subject nevertheless
    I simply wanted to ask. Appreciate it!

    • Running a blog takes as little or as much effort as you want to put into it. .. if you’re half decent at coding you can learn by the “fly by the seat of your pants method” which is how I learned. =) Thanks for stopping by.
